Designer Marcia Patmos was inspired by a recent trip Shanghai when creating the M Patmos Pre-Fall 2012 collection. She tells Style.com that she enjoyed some "peculiar delicacies that she enjoyed at a traditional Chinese wedding, including turtle soup and shark's stomach."
You might be wondering how on earth turtle soup and shark's stomach could inspire a fashion collection, but it's that sense of adventure that Ms. Patmos brought back with her.
At first glance, the M Patmos Pre-Fall 2012 collection seems like your run-of-the-mill daywear line, but the intricacy of the collection lies in the details. For instance, hidden zippers transforming a slouchy tunic into a minidress and hand-crafted crochet sweaters are the types of details that make Marcia Patmos' offerings so unforgettable.
