The thing that makes presentations of collections so attractive (as opposed to runway shows) to me is the amount of intimacy that's possible. Diego Binetti's Spring Summer 2012 collection is a great example of this. To showcase his designs, models were perched above the heads of viewers as well as well as prancing on the ground below. It felt like we were walking in to a secret garden where enchanting nymphs were at play

|A Closer Look|
Binetti's pieces moved with feather-like ease. Soft and strong at the same time - note the eye-catching hardware both show in the looks itself and the accessories. I see a lot of influence from angels and seraphins. Makeup, hair, and nails worked to complete the looks, creating what felt like an aviary full of colorful, exotic (and a bit mysterious) creatures. An orchestra of lace, sequins, chiffon and more felt airy and lighthearted.
