Alice Yim Raina Dress & Autumn Winter 2012 Collection
4th October 2012
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.
