Fashion designer Butch Diva epitomizes her hometown of Brooklyn in this 2012 spring summer collection. The outfits are composed of screamingly vibrant colors and sharp, sleek cuts. They are magnificently self-aware without being self-conscious. As such, many may shy away from wearing them, but for those that can pull it off, this couture is a definite knockout.
Bright colors, leopard prints and contrasting patterns provide a lot to look at. You can get lost in the swirling pinks, yellows and blacks coming to abrupt stops along the edges of the outfits. Yet despite this complexity, the look maintains an impressive coherence.
Street fashion has been inspiring high fashion for quite some time now, and these looks from Butch Diva are a poignant example of this.
