Mimi Plange Fall 2012
It wasn't easy for me to get going this morning with the death of Whitney Houston and twelve degree weather in New York city; but a good designer will motivate me to move! Mimi Plange is that designer who I have been following for a few seasons and for Fall has has not disappointed and in fact has produced a very focused collection. The things to take note from Ms. Plange is that her pieces are well constructed and she shows a focus/direction in her offerings. She showed around twenty looks but working in a limited color palette brings in the focus factor, she's not all over the place! The cherry on the sunday is her collaboration with shoe designer Manolo Blanik. I am quite sure that Mr. Blanik does not do shoes for just anybody so this is yet another sign that Ms. Plange is on the right design track.
