BEAUTY: Clothing--Andrea Pompilio
Andrea Pompilio showed a F-W '12-'13 collection that was infused with fun and humor: it could have been dubbed "Harry Potter Goes Ape." Blending classic pieces with references to animals, like the recently deceased Cheetah the chimp emblazoned on shirts and totes, and dangling raccoon tails, Pompilio played with the idea of "Urban Jungle." Shearling made an appearance as did a goofy deer stalker cap worn with the ear flaps straight out, making the models look like some kind of satyr (hello, Mr. Tumnus!). He also used unexpected colors (for a F-W collection) to great effect, as have many designers this season... colors like chartreuse, orange, salmon, and turquoise!
