Cynthia Rowley

cynthia rowley spring 2012

New York: Revisiting the active influences, whimsical prints and dreamy colors of recent seasons, designer Cynthia Rowley moved looks forward for S/S 12 by adding gold materials and fancy details. Structure was emphasized by contrast overlock stitching, and square perforations added interest to basic tee silhouettes. Accessories were consistently sporty-femme, while beauty looks felt mildly masculine. –Whitney Kessler
