Arthur Mendonça S/S 2012
The Arthur Mendonça woman of Spring/Summer 2012 definitely has a taste for vibrant and rich colors. In this collection splashes of fuchsia and electric yellow accented more subdued colors such as burnt orange, cocoa and cream. Texture and pattern also play a role in enriching the collection. Models came down the runway in mature florals, animal print stripes and muted geometrics as well as garments that were gathered and draped. While the collection featured many suits and workplace separates, there were also plenty of flowing dresses for the Mendonça woman to wear on her day off from work. Gold arm bands, snakeskin belts and large necklaces reminiscent of breastplates finished the looks, adding a warrior-like dimension to the cosmopolitan collection.
