Sophie Theallet Fall 2012: Wallpaper Prints With a Parisian Twist
The Scene: Théallet always brings the pretty to NYFW, but for fall, she played with more prints and texture-blocking than ever before.
The Soundtrack: Georges Delerue's haunting, beautiful theme from Godard's Le Mépris looped throughout the show.
The Look: At the center of Théallet's collection was a trompe l'oeil brocade pattern, which she used freely on everything from satin wrap dresses to A-line skirts to knit turtlenecks. The show felt more casual and even bohemian than most of the designers' past outings, with more daywear looks than evening ones. The color palette was firmly autumnal, with most looks incorporating shades of rust, sienna, burgundy and red—although there were a couple of sweet Swiss-dot looks in cream and black that served as palate cleansers in the midst of so much print.
Pieces We Want: The rust-and-beige printed full skirt below would be a perfect day-to-night staple, as would a shimmering navy dress with subtle red piping. And though we have no clue where we'd wear it, the wrapped-bodice finale gown at left was just lovely.
