Ahead of the Trends: Narciso Rodriguez’s Sexy Sophistication

Narciso Rodriguez’s Spring 2012 show was all about refinement with a twist. The collection was surprising at time, but the aesthetic was so Narciso. The vibe was sophisticated with its clean lines and graceful-movement fabrics, but the constant throughout was the cool asymmetry in neckl and hemlines. The show began with the designer’s signature black and white but rolled right into blocks of red, orange and aqua.  Want to be on trend for much less than these pricey designer duds? Take a look!
