I normally am thrilled with many patterns in new Vogue pattern collections, but the Spring 2012 collection is, well…..a yawner IMHO. I thought most of the designer offerings looked like they had been sketched on the back of a cocktail napkin, although I do think both of the Anne Klein designers are total winners.
I really love this sleek, polished jacket and slim pants from Anne Klein. I could see this in wool crepe for fall/winter,and linen for spring would be smashing. Maybe in the new Tangerine Tango!!
Love, love, love this feminine and sophisticated blouse, also from Anne Klein. Silk chiffon, a pretty voile – YUM.
I would totally dig wearing this sweet little vintage reproduction – UH-dorable. Classic styling that could be dressed up or down depending on fabric.
Big, face-framing collars on jackets are a sure-fire hit with me. Wouldn’t this easy, breezy jacket look fresh in a bright poplin?
I am a little obsessed with making jeans right now, so maybe I will break down and try a pair of classic 5-pocket jeans for my DH. Cuz his $15 Lee jeans are really only suited for yard work. 😉
What do you think of this new collection? Is it a winner, a big flop, or somewhere in between? I’d love to hear your thoughts – send me a comment!
