The 'To Be Adored' SS 2012 collection is perfectly pretty, with peter pan collars and tea dresses. Designer Binbin McNiven utilizes the romanticism of the female form and rendered this ultra-chic line. The series is in a charming gradient of pastels and neutrals. The patterns featured are subtle, yet spunky.
The articles are sweet and tart, but could easily be given a punk princess vibe with a pair of chunky black boots. The lace-cut, wide-legged trouser is particularly rebellious for the line, and reminds of the later '60s rather than the sprouting mod style of the rest of the line. The baby doll innocence of the dresses is balanced out with short hem lines, keeping the apparel wearable.
The To Be Adored SS 2012 line is a retro delight.
