#NYFW: Sally Lapointe Fall 2012

Sally Lapointe created a deep and moody dreamworld for ice queens and transformative tastemakers for Fall 2012. Her collection, inspired by Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis, began with a stately ivory evolution, then turned sinister and sexy with ornate, iron-wrought designs and leather. The young designer's latest work captured an emotional world of light to dark, yet maintained sultry, wearable designs fit for the modern-day siren. In the midst of Lapointe's ivory capes, navy neoprene jackets, gold sequin pants, and tempting backless dresses, we couldn't keep our eyes off of the models' wondrously stacked wedges and their patchwork patterns. Equally so, the designer's descent from sweet to sombre was amplified by beauty looks that keyed in on the porcelain-face-plum-lip combo that fall and winter seem to implore. With an elixir of heavy metal and hardcore 'tude, Lapointe's Fall collection executed good girl gone bad to the letter.
