For Spring/Summer 2012, one of my favorite New York designers, Michael Angel channels ancient Egyptian style with digi-print motifs consisting of pyramid floor-plans and 1920 illustrations of Cleopatra and ancient scenery. When it all comes together the combination's create beautiful sunset colors of bold orange hues and hints of stone and earth tones mixed with what I saw was, a beautiful purple sky. Michael noted that the inspiration was rooted from his mother, who is from Cairo, Egypt. Angel took his inspiration and fused it with his fashion forward aesthetic creating a luxurious collection full of gorgeous patterns and obviously, colors. My favorite's you ask? The first zig-zag patterned look is absolutely stunning, the colors are spot on! PLUS I could totally see myself rocking look number two here, a.k.a the printed/plain top with drawstrings..LOVE..
