Phoebe Philo played with proportions, and little else, for her Spring 2012 collection. There were cocoon sleeve jackets, cinched with extra-wide belts, trousers dressed up with sculpted peplum details that looked like they had been influenced by a Frank Gehry building, and peplum. The minimalist mood remained strong, and while some of the oversized proportions seem hard to wear in real life, there were slimmer silhouettes that would work for every day: slim blouses tucked into low-waisted pleated skirts, crisp shirtdresses, and a definite must-have, ankle-strap platform heel. We'll have the full collection — and review — to present soon, but for now, check out some highlights.
