Designers and sisters Alexandra and Kristen O’Neill of Porter Grey presented a clean and colorful S/S 2012 collection at The Box at Lincoln Center on the Premiere day of NYFW. I started off NYFW with the Porter Grey Presentation. The collection was full of color, sprinkled with light leather and layered with blazers. I love leather year round so really appreciate how the O’Neill sisters incorporated it into their spring collection. Some looks I to take note of are # 17, a Buttercup Perforated Leather A-Line Dress wouldn’t of been appreciated from a runway, the detail would have just gotten lost. Look # 6 The Hydrangea leather Wrap Skirt, #8’s Nude Silk Crepe Blazer which I think is a great staple piece. It had a really nice drape and I would love to throw it on over jeans. Look # 12, The sleeveless Crepe midi with back cut out is a must! Over all this collection hit all the necessities for spring…loose silhouettes with attention to tailoring and pops of color. Xo K
