Juan Carlos Obando Autumn/Winter 12/13

Juan Carlos Obando’s collection was a mixture of colours: mints, greens, blue, orange, pink, white and black; it also contained patterned materials.

The way this piece moves looks inspirational. The fluidity of the bottom with the structured top has been done many times, but the layering affect and play with colours on the bottom half keeps the look fresh.

Paisley prints are not my favourite, although the do not seem so bad in this ensemble.

I really like this look. I think it is very strong and symbolises the strength in the woman who wears it. Dressed all in white, it says “this person is appreciates order and will take no nonsense from anyone”. To make it more accessible to more people, you could accessorise with a black or coloured jacket. It may make the piece lose its stern vibe, but may be more appropriate for everyday life.

I like how the monochrome is offset with the styling here. The green necklace definitely adds personality. I think this dress could be accessorised in so many ways. Brilliant.

Fur came back to New York in this collection, as well as others. I really liked the skinny/slim fitting patterned trousers.

This could be worn to work or a formal event. Of course, accessorised accordingly with regards to the event.

I want that coat. It looks so thick and warm. The styling here was very simple, but that worked in favour of the designer - the emphasis was on the clothes.

Bright colours seem to be in for the coming autumn/winter season.
