Michael Angel Spring 2012 Collection

Today I dream about the Spring 2012 collection by Michael Angel.

I wrote about Michael's Resort 2012 collection here, where he charmed me with his prints and geometric shapes. Well, I have to admit that the new collection from the talented New York-based designer is even better!

While creating this amazing collection Michael was inspired by Ancient Egypt and as his mother is from Cairo also by the old family photographs. His signature digital prints evolve around the floor plans and walls of the ancient Egyptian temples, lotus flowers and papyrus and Cleopatra's portraits which were then layered with a gold lace and mirrored.

The shapes are very modern and simple but also feminine to keep the overpowering prints in a perfect balance. I love the colours here: from the basic white, black and gray to orange hues combined and earthy browns. I love that sleeveless trench, printed pleated skirts, cropped jackets, anoraks, structured dresses and trousers - I admit, I love it all! :)

Plus the model - Julia Stegner did such a good job modeling the lookbook photographed by Christopher Katke. See the whole collection here!

  1. Bardzo fajne ubrania. Generalnie nie przepadam za wzorami u siebie, ale takie z pewnością bym założyła...Pierwsza sukienka jest niesamowita. I te obydwa czarne zestawy - fantastyczne!

  2. It's a really beautiful collection, but the sandals are amazing.

  3. Czytając o wzorach i inspiracjach z Egiptu pomyślałam sobie "nieeee, nie lubię"..a potem zobaczyłam zdjęcia :) Rzeczywiście świetne ubrania! Faktycznie, wyważenie doskonałe. Tak jak Jag, nie przepadam za wzorami na sobie, ale pokusiłabym się o coś z tej kolekcji!
