>> Activewear that hits a highly feminized note is a big story for next season — and Loeffler Randall's Spring 2012 collection manages to strike that sporty-pretty balance perfectly. Here, designer Jessie Randall has mixed tech fabrics like Velcro, mesh, and wetsuit neoprene with natural materials like raffia, leather, and canvas — all in a Fragonard-inspired palette of Popsicle pinks, delicate nudes, and Springtime greens. Silhouettes are easy going with plenty of appeal; amidst Randall's signature twist-knot flats, there are also chunky platforms and high-rise pumps as well as a new round-peg heel shape. Also in the mix: metallic polka-dots, textural snakeskin, and a nice dose of contrast neon. Click through to see the whole collection, now.
