Christian Siriano Spring 2012 RTW

It's no secret how much I love Christian Siriano. I may be a bit biased when it comes to his collections but I seriously do think he is a talented designer. He is so playful and fun with his designs which makes clothes fun to wear. Plus his finale dresses are always larger than life and scream glamour. As the Season 4 winner of Project Runway he's still trying to make a household name for himself and prove his worthiness to the fashion world. His latest collection from NYFW is proof that he's here to stay as one of the world's rising designers. Christian's pieces for spring consisted of more wearable separates in neutrals with pops of color. Unlike last year where loud and vibrant prints took center stage, this collection had a simpler and more refined touch letting the frilly colored fabric speak for itself. Let's take a look shall we?

A gorgeous neutral set of separates was one the first looks out on the runway. I love the drapey skirt and matching jacket - this would be a fabulous office option. I'm kind of loving those chartreuse paper bag waist pants. Especially with a crisp sleeveless button down. Very restrained yet subtly amazing.

Surprise surprise. I have a few favorite short dresses. Shocking, I know. These neutral options are so playful and fabulous. I love the feathered look on the left. That coral belt just pops right out at you. And that cocktail dress with puffy shoulders and swirly metallic print? So in love. One of his main colors - chartreuse - was played up with shoes and a fun clutch. Plus it's one of my favorite outfit combos. Neutral dress with colored shoes.

I'm literally giddy at the sight of these two options. 1: because I think the first one might potentially be a bustier and skirt combo. 2:  I mean hello?! I love how the texture isn't quite feather or fringe but a mixture in between. So. Amazing. And I've decide for spring I will need EVERYTHING chartreuse.

I've become so obsessed with maxi skirts lately and fell in love instantly with these options. They both pair tees or casual pieces with fun and feminine bottoms. I mean I absolutely must have or re-create the left right look. That tulle skirt is FAB especially when it's worn with a simple striped strapless top. Pure genius again!

What did you think of the collection? Personally I think the day that I can purchase a real Siriano piece will be a glorious day. Here's a video from the runway show so you can see the clothes in movement - one of my favorite parts about fashion shows.
