Kimberly Ovtiz’ Spring/Summer 2012 presentation was designed to be slightly unapproachable.
The dissonant music was hard to place into its own context, but once the show began, it became obvious that this collection was about details. Very few colors were used; the majority of the dresses and pantsuits were white, with a few looks being presented in a saturated strawberry red and even few blacks with a hazy print. The rear sides of the garments were subtly intricate with straps crossing easily over the shoulders and some down towards the small of the back. For a few seasons now, designers have been toying with this idea of the back as the new erogenous zone and Kimberly Ovitz did so in a much more refined manner. While the front sides of the clothes were particularly basic, it was only when the models rounded the corner that the full spectacle of each look could be appreciated.
