Most designers seemed eager to test the waters of brilliant neon colors for summer and spring 2012. One such designer is Nanette Lepore who in contrast had gone all-white last season. If her color palette was spare then, now it IS clearly ablaze with color! Down the runway traipsed outfits in neon yellow, tangerine, hot pink and electric blue, either singly or in preposterous combinations we’d think wouldn’t work, but Lepore’s discerning eye would combine in undaunted fashion. Her seasoned eye combined the brazen colors with simple feminine silhouettes, expertly tipping her hat to the balance of fashion.
