Fabulous fashion, delicious cocktails and the city’s stylish best, made Italian fashion brand, Pinko’s AW ’12 collection launch party, the talk of the town. While the brand has been quite low key so far, it definitely managed to shake things up, making bloggers, stylists, journalists and fashion enthusiast really sit up and take notice.
With the iconic Naomi Campbell as the face of Pinko, I’m actually surprised how I hadn’t taken note of it before… well, better late than never!
The AW ’12 showcase was really impressive, not just for the uber rich fabrics used but also the overall concept- the nuvo urban wardrobe. The collection merges a functional wardrobe (read workwear ready) with biker and rock elements (think Rihanna) and serves up a delectable cocktail- the ultimate in mix and match. A stylist’s dream, I’d imagine!
The color palette sweeps from subtle tones to alternating vivid and powdery shades of wine red, brown and amber. Lace, shimmering lurex and thick metallic sequins in the collection offers a lot of scope for creativity. I personally loved the gold accents and macro houndstooth checks that give definition to the new bombé shape coats.
I’m absolutely in love with my black-and-gold Pinko clutch right now! Find Pinko at The Dubai Mall or Dubai Marina Mall.
