Wolford fall collection: retro flair with an edge

Surrounded by an unexpected feel of surrealism, strongly grounded in the 1950s structural look that focused on delicate feminine silhouettes, and brought-up-to-date by the rough bondage elements, Wolford’s fall 2012 collection surprises with a modern rock-chick attitude.

The Austrian brand took inspiration from the untamed work of Elsa Schiaparelli, and complemented their raw vision with powerful and tough accents spotted especially in the metallic beads and the edgy studs that hardened the figure-flattering silhouettes. Wolford’s seductive approach for fall 2012 draws a whole new line between two opposite worlds, dominated by romance and strength. Soft rose motifs collide with bondage like patterns, while flirty circular skirts strike against shrink-wrapped silhouettes.

Wolford went a little softer on the color scheme, as all the sexy black numbers were gently toned down by a contrasting array of bright red, burgundy, dark blue and pink looks, meant to keep the collection lively and feminine. As always, their noteworthy legwear pieces kept things fresh, surprising and alluring, by carrying the same intriguing rock spin. The catchy details include diamond and bow motifs, alongside heavy studs and biker-like chain elements.
