The Talulah FW 2012 collection debuted at the L’Oreal Melbourne fashion festival. The line is vintage-inspired, boasting a color palette reminiscent of the 70s. Patterns also carry a vintage undertone, with multi-toned crochet looks and tri-hued patchwork.
Asymmetrical silhouettes keep the retro line modern. Memorable cuts include extreme mullet-cut crop tops, ponchos and split-collar halter tops. The collection is versatile, meeting at the middle of haute couture and streetwear. The apparel is bold, yet wearable with flirtatious vibes. Also memorable was a series of open-toed platform heels. The shoes tied together the mash-up of inspirations, lending the show an ultra-chic appeal.
