HONOR – NEW YORK F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
Honor’s designer Giovanna Randall, in creating her Fall 2012 collection, imagined a preppy young man meeting a woman from Argentina while studying abroad, and how their style would merge together. The collection consisted largely of tailored dresses and separates, perfect for the fashionable city girl. Huge rose and art deco prints were featured on streamlined silhouette in vivid pinks, purples, and blues. Paired with bold, box-shaped handbags, and laid back styling, it’s no wonder Honor has started to gain a following with young starlets such as Alexa Chung and Kirsten Dunst.
