Narciso Rodriguez Catwalk Fashion Show New York ss2012
Narciso Rodriguez’s inspiration came from artist Kim Joon, whose large-scale, swirl-heavy tattoos make for fascinating and ponderous art. Rodriguez used it in a refined way. The result was an impressive collection that looked different in the midst of this print-heavy season.
Rodriguez opened with a black top over white pants, simple but powerful. He then increased the intensity of geometry, stripes, bands and squares going this way and that. Hard lines and gentle curves, black, white, sand and lovely water-colors. When he went for pattern, it was subtle.
