Alice Yim Raina Dress & Autumn Winter 2012 Collection

Hot on the heels of Peter Pilotto’s spring prints yesterday comes today’s outfit post showing Alice Yim’s Raina dress.  One of the few designers I take a break from my monochromatic norm for, Yim’s Raina dress (featured before on the blog in black, image below) also comes in a delicate dragonfly print, a theme running through her spring collection this year.

The Raina dress is a beautifully classic design in the onyx (black) colour yet the print version transports the dress into the romantic and ethereal category.  This is a perfect dress for the end of summer – the last rays of warmth, the last crisp but sunny evenings outside…

As we move towards autumn, Alice Yim’s collection for winter 2012/13 provides some good transitional options.  A palette of neutral tones, rusty browns, navy and black is broken up by the melancholia print – circular swirls set amongst a fabric dreamscape.  (Click on the image below to enlarge.)  My favourite pieces are the Pia wool and leather vest and the Lucia blouse – a long-sleeved silk Georgette top with lace shoulders.

A high quality collection of leather, wool and lace with masculine overtones – I’m ready to step out of silky Raina and into autumn textures already.  Another lovely collection from Alice Yim NYC.

Wearing: Raina dress in dragonfly print, Alice Yim.  Belt, COS.  Heels, Mango.

      Cos is a store I really miss browsing through and trying on clothes in store. They have online shopping now which is great but I much prefer the in store experience. Great for basics, especially white shirts.

    I share you passion for Alice’s designs! This latest collection is her best yet in my opinion. Seeing how lovely this dress is reminds me- I need to follow up on a blouse I was going to buy!
