Ana Locking FW 11/12

Apparently this post went to the bottom of the list for quite some time but here it is. In February I had the opportunity to go to one of my favorite designers' fashion show, Ana Locking, at Cibeles Fashion Week. I've always admired her use of color and the construction of a very geometric silhouette, her personal signature; her Fall/Winter 10 collection is a clear example of this and remains one of my favorites ever.

This collection (FW 2011-2012) named Stance was no exception of her impeccable use of geometry and colors, it was intended to be a collection that represented structure, elegance and posture. The runway started with coats and dresses in cobalt blue, light blue and camel with touches of grey. Men's jackets were flawless, having a straight silhouette, a theme that was recurrent in all of the collection. Antagonistic patterns followed, consisting in the contrast between light and bright colors, short and long proportions and flat and draped fabrics. Pale pink, mustard, crimson red and some iridescence pink were part of the palette.  Leather gloves, dark lipstick and squared smokey eyes gave the collection the classic winter touch. The collection was a clear example of the balance between chaos and order, a technique Ana has refined with time and has made her a very talented designer; the combination between fabrics, patterns and colors clearly formed a beautiful collection, one of the best of this Cibeles Fashion Week.
