New York Fashion Week 2012: Corey Lynn Calter
The fall/winter 2012 runway show season started with a joyous jolt of color from Corey Lynn Calter. The designer, who lives in Los Angeles, said she was inspired by light and positivity. The collection was full of easy, tailored separates in light brights, including a rust, button-front pencil skirt worn and floral print T-shirt, lace skinny pants with a lemon yellow short-sleeve coat, and an ombre sequin stripe shift dress in sunset tones.
More louche looks included a rainbow stripe shirt-dress and clashing geometric-print palazzo pants. Sparrow bird intarsia knits, color-blocked Peter Pan blouses and colorful iPad cases added to the prissy, grown-up schoolgirl vibe. (Attention "Glee" costume designer Lou Eyrich, you might want to check out Calter's clothes for the lovable priss Emma Pillsbury.)
Calter's collection packed a lot of punch for the price. It will retail for $150 to $500.
