Nanette Lepore Spring 2012: The Electric Kool-Aid Cybill Shepard Test
Nanette Lepore’s vibrant Spring collection can be summed up in one word: electric. “I took a break from color last season and had a very white show, so I was recharging my batteries,” the designer told us backstage. Thus, Lepore showed 32 looks in cheerful, neon hues including yellow, tangerine, and pink. Live music by Sam Bisbee’s band added to the energized atmosphere. While the color palette was strong, Lepore created a perfect balance with soft, feminine silhouettes inspired by the 1950’s. “I love the way Cybill Shepherd was dressed in The Last Picture Show,” the designer said, recalling the classic film. “We’re moving out of that period where everything is super draped and sexy and into a more conservative era,” she added.
