Honor’s Fall 2012 collection explored a new and experimental visual texture created via layering patterned sheers over bold prints. Though black served as a chromatic canvas for many of the looks, there was no shortage of dynamic color use. Confident citrons, cobalts, and vermilions took center stage in the form of a sweater’s bold stripe, a pleated-trouser jumpsuit, and a collarless double-breasted reefer coat. For evening, a demure modesty could be found in a symmetrically printed organza dress (with its long sleeves and jewel neckline) worn over a strapless duchesse satin gown; for day, a belted sweater and coordinated scaled-organza pencil skirt made office-ready feel ultra-cool. – Kibwe Chase-Marshall
