Show Review: Mimi Plange Spring 2012
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

For Spring 2012 Mimi Plange presented an Asian inspired collection peppered with Namibian tribal influences. Dubbed ‘A Flower in the Desert’, the collection offered exotic column dresses in soft rose colored palettes with floral prints. Button up shirt dresses with waist-cinching belts along with geisha style blouses displayed Plange’s pristine knack for tailoring.

Plange held no punches with the color blocking as a majority of the pieces were bursting with color and energy in fuschia pink, teal, and tangerine. The colorfully eclectic pieces could easily transition into work-wear and a night out on the town.

Plange collaborated with famed shoe designer, Manolo Blahnik; and the intricately beaded shoe display was a mirror image of her exuberant collection. Stylist to the stars and reality show maven, Rachel Zoe, along with Vogue’s Andre Leon Tally were on hand to support the Ghanian designer’s presentation.

Plange’s profound ability to mix Asian influence with the traditional dress of the Himba, and the Victorian dress of the Herero tribes to create a cohesive collection that was both strong, soft, modern and feminine, showed that Plange—(in the words of Andre Leon Tally,) “has got great promise.”

Breath taking! What say you, bombers and bombshells?

    The only thing I don’t like is how boxy-shaped the model looks in the 4th pic. Aside from that, I love it!
