Runway Rundown: Perry Ellis spring 2012

Perry Ellis Spring Summer 2012

What: The Perry Ellis Spring 2012 men's runway show.

Where: Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center.

Inspiration: Creative Director John Crocco was inspired by "An American safari in a painted desert."

What that meant: Lightweight linens and cottons, a color palette rooted in neutral shades with pops of desert sage, clay and chamomile. Key items included safari-ready cropped pants, a goat suede shirt and sweaters inspired by desert landscapes. 

Perfect for: Well-dressed denizens of the dunes looking to keep things light and laid-back.


Men's Fall Collections: Style Gone Wild

Spring 2009 Collections: Another age of innocence

Spring 2008 Collections: Oh, For the Love of Cod!
