Field Report: Walter Spring / Summer 2012 Fashion Show #NYFW

The Walter Spring Summer collection was presented on the roof top of The Empire Hotel. Not your typical Fashion Week show, this presentation featured models placed on pedestals as we all ogled and awed over the flowy maxi dresses, beautiful buttery-smooth leather jackets, and tailored shorts with matching jackets.

I was positively smitten with the entire collection! And I’m not alone; celebrity fans like Jessica Alba, Rachel Bilson, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been snapped wearing these separates that are easily mix and matched. Walter made me feel like this collection was made especially for me, which I’m told was exactly his goal.

My favorites was the rusty orange sleeveless trench, bright pink boxy tweed jacket, and the polka dot tailored pants.
