New York: Narciso Rodriguez presented a S/S 12 collection rich in geometry. Pieced shards of fabric created abstract striations on silky tops; asymmetric skirts and slouchy pants featured wide, folded waistbands, and bias-cut dresses clung to the body in tiers. A graphic black and white palette gave way to icy aqua and teal, then heated up with shades of pumpkin and blood orange. A subtle, marbleized print was inspired by the tattoo-style work of Korean artist Kim Joon, and delicate burnout patterns added dimension to sheer, draped dresses. The most noteworthy items in the show were a duo of voluminous shirtdresses with placed contrast paneling, and a series of scarf-like halter tops that appeared to effortlessly hang from the neck. Neon racerback bras added a touch of sportiness to the minimalist feel. -Anna Jane Davis
