SK WILBUR DEBUTS HIS S/S 2012 PLUS SIZE COLLECTION DURING NYFW
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
In the midst of catching shows at Lincoln Center I was invited to view plus size designer SK Wilbur's s/s 2012 collection in midtown. I have to be honest, I got there late and missed the show. However, I managed to snap a few pictures of the models still in their dresses after the show.
Wilbur's spring collection entitled "Out Of The Dark" offered ladylike sophisticated styles punctuated with edgy details. His spring color palette consisted of white, black, and gray, with color splashes of tomato and citrine. The classic simplistic styles were adorned with edgy details like exposed zippers, sculptural and mesh shoulders, leather trimmed zip belts, as well as classic pleating and draping. The details are what makes the collection standout. The high neck dresses were complimented with bold necklaces from Lee Angel, and over sized clutches designed by Wilbur himself for an upcoming collection call Garden Variety.
Wilbur wanted his spring collection to evoke a feeling of renewal and rejuvenation. According to Wilbur, "A time to cast off heavy burdens." The spring collection presented a balance of sophisticated styles mixed with current trends.
What do you think of the SK Wilbur Spring 2011 collection?
