NYFW Spring 2012: Juan Carlos Obando Makes Eveningwear for Cool Girls

The Scene: The Box at Lincoln Center, filled with plenty of bright young things and a vertical retangular wall covered in hundreds and hundreds of bright pink fresh flowers. (It smelled amazing.)

The Look: LA-based designer Juan Carlos Obando makes "eveningwear for cool girls," he explained to Lucky before the show. "Everyone wants to look good, but no one wants to be uncomfortable." The result of these standards was a collection of elegant-but-forgiving slinky dresses, shiny pants and cropped silk jackets.

What We Want to Buy: We're pretty obsessed with the little black jacket studded with black stones. It's the kind of thing that looks as good over a cocktail dress as it does paired with jeans.
