>> Colorblock and cutouts: in Hussein Chalayan's hands, they felt modern, smart — and just right for Fall 2012. The designer worked with dazzling color combos — such as bright tomato with apricot or vivid lime and teal — for a enticing sense of depth. Silhouettes were oversize, geometric, and playful with cutouts and layering used throughout. Holographic leggings — paired with matching tennis shoes and a sporty wool blazer — looked surprisingly chic, as did a series of artfully-draped column gowns.
