NYFW | General Idea Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

One of our favorite shows from this season’s New York Fashion Week comes from General Idea. The looks were fabulous but we were really impressed with the overall presentation. The bright colors and amazing styles walked down the runway with Colette Magny’s “Melocoton” playing in the background blending the timeless appeal of the collection with that of the classic French singer. Here’s what Selectism had to say: “We like the orange and turquoise in the upcoming collection, but also the more toned down khaki and black and navy checker pieces. Look at the pieces individually and you will find some great every day outerwear and knitwear to accent your outfits.”
