Barbara Casasola calls her spring / summer 2012 collection one for “mother and daughter”. The kind that doesn’t particularly age or go out of trend, but the kind that can be passed on to generations to come.
Minimalistic lines, clean cuts, simple silhouettes and virgin colours; if the haphazardness seen on next year’s spring 2012 shelves is causing you a migraine, then the secret lies in these treads. This age-proof range comprises of flowy maxis with visible zips, pleated summer jackets, straight ‘60s style sheaths and shoulder padded pieces, giving it an effortless modern aesthetic. The lookbook notes suggest the use of supreme fabrics such as silk, hand-washed crepe and georgettes.
Fit for a weekend trip to the lush countryside or a balmy summer evening, these pieces come with an ingredient of freedom and exclusivity. They flirt with the wind, conceal your body and ten years from now, they will be hung among other precious vintage finds.
