Following the Shauntele presentation at last week’s Planete Chic show, we were treated to designer Espen Salberg’s Fall 2012 collection.
Love, love, love, is all I have to say! The looks were feminine, sexy and daring. Lace over nude or bare skin was a theme throughout the collection. As I looked on, I contemplated the fancy soirees I might wear some of the more formal pieces to.

Fashion designer Carlos Campos just had his fall/winter 2012 collection last Sunday.
A New York-based fashion designer born in Honduras has shown a different approach to the runway. His collection was inspired by an old love story, written by Gabriel García Márquez, “Love in the Time of Cholera.” It is a story of a man in a park who spends 50 years on a bench waiting for his true love.
Colors of burgundy and red rose, camel brown, dark navy, and sepia perfect the story of the book he gives credit to. The floral prints, detailed pockets, distinctive patterns, and the assortment of colors will let you create a unique style of your own. The different colors blend well to mix and match. Finishing up some of his looks included outerwear that ranged from wool, cashmere, and cotton-silk.
What would you pair up or wear in this collection to tell your own love story?
