Catherine Malandrino barely there Fall 2012

On such a cold New York day with the temperature sitting below freezing, the pieces laden with sheer motifs are just about the last thing you could imagine wearing for fall / winter 2012. But what we’re actually wearing when we take in a collection and what we desire to wear when the occasion calls for it are two very different things.

Catherine Malandrino’s showing at New York fashion week (NYFW) offered up pieces for the occasions.

They’re pieces, however, suited to certain occasions and certain people – save for two dresses which fail to impress, by no means can you describe Catherine Malandrino’s fall 2012 as event wear. Entitled La Feline, this is a collection based on the qualities of virtue and vice. Hence the cashmere. Hence the vinyl. Hence some rather simplistic pieces are set against barely there ones.
