Spring 2012: Perry Ellis

I love me a sharp-dressed man.  That–and a good head of hair.  At the Perry Ellis Spring 2012 RTW there was plenty of both.

The Perry Ellis Spring 2012 RTW show was packed to the gills.  The music set the mood for the main event which included a hint of bright colors on a notoriously sandy colored canvas.  The models sported linen bermuda shorts, safari suits, cotton ribbed cardigans and cotton windbreakers while bright salmons, mustard yellows and understated greens rounded out the colors of the collection.

Perry Ellis’ brand is known in the fashion world for making practical and stylish pieces that won’t break the bank.  His looks are timeless and trendy, especially this specific Spring 2012 Collection.  He makes it OK for men to wear capris, bermuda shorts and bright colors.  According to Style.com, John Crocco, Ellis’ Creative Director said the colors in the collection were inspired by his recent travels to the Painted Desert in Arizona.

Perfect for Springtime weather the Crocco’s designs included plenty of linen, cotton as well as a comfort factor that most men wearing the collection would appreciate.  Although the collection had an allover casual feel, Crocco added intricate touches to the suits that would turn many heads on the street including my favorite piece the chintz linen slim suit in black with a linen horizon stripe shirt in natural.

Ellis’ Collection is exactly why I like styling for men, he brings nice surprises (that are practical) to Men’s fashion.  He sets himself a part from the rest by taking calculated risks at exactly the right times.

Perry Ellis was my VERY first runway show in my young career in 2007, I felt a great nostalgia stepping into the show and watching my favorite part–the shirtless male model finale.  Can you blame me?
