Chris Benz: NYFW F/W 2012








Chris Benz was my favorite show of the season (of those I attended). Every little detail was my cup of tea, down to the crazy big hair and the cabaret music they were playing (I would also like that backdrop to be on one of my walls). Though the vintage inspiration was obvious and spanning several decades, it managed to feel completely modern and wearable. If you dissect each ensemble piece by piece, it's all pretty classic - save for, perhaps, the cloven gloves.
 
As for me, I would happily wear each outfit as is. And listen to cabaret music in front of my glittery backdrop, big hair and all.

To see more of the collection, keep reading after the jump.
