German born designer, Maier's, latest offering displays a wide range of colour that we've seen in a number of Spring/Summer 2012 collections. But rather than give into the impulse of designing a line of over-the-top fluorescent shades, Maier sticks to saturated, rich tones in silks and chiffons. At the same time, the shear plastic applique found on a few of the looks was less than appealing.
And still, I feel as though the garments this season that have excited me the most have been the red-carpet worthy dresses. Maier churns these out in spades. Like any great show, he's left the best for last: four (in the words of Nicole Phelps) "glorious chiffon goddess gowns, each one more vibrant than the next."
I couldn't have said it better myself, Nicole.
