Liz Black Fall '12

London-based Liz Black titled her Fall '12 collection "Superheroine Chic," and the simple but strong shapes do call to mind what a fashionable female might wear when fighting the bad guys. It's clear in looking at Black's previous collections that she has a penchant for modern geometric cuts, but this collection as a whole is her best and least fashion school show of them all. The panels and colorblocking become the trademark of the superheroine, perhaps replacing her monogram and cape, and the leather details are anything but dainty. The artsy paint prints are a fantastic touch, adding a little fluidity to the otherwise straight-forward and straight-cut looks. See more here.
