Last night, we trekked it after a long, hard Day 7 over to Milk Studios, where editors and buyers (and Ms J Alexander) rested their weary, Fashion Week shoes while watching the spring 2012 Wayne show. Let's just say that Wayne could have put whatever the hell she wanted down that runway, since she just gave birth, a week ago, on Fashion's Night Out. (It was a boy!) But what she did put on the runway was a ton of black and white, with a splash or two of bright blue via a "rope snake" print, a collaboration with artist Benjamin Degen.
The collection wasn't particularly earth-shattering, but it was certainly color-cohesive. But these weren't just LBDs and LWDs: The dresses were loose, drapey, and were worn with Doc Marten-like shoes and ankle socks. Something that all those hip kids could pull of without a hitch, but the rest of us would have to spend a little more time in front of the mirror trying to figure out how to properly accessorize with white. We've put 12 looks—which also include tuxedo jackets and short suits—after the jump.
