Shearling and leather and dragons, oh my. Staying on trend with many other Fall 2012 collections we’ve seen, Vivienne Tam used rich colors like burnt orange, eggplant and forest green to meld ethnic prints with sleek tailoring. Mongolian fur collars topped wool coats worn over skirts and pants of lustrous fabrics. Lace dresses were paired with wool trousers for daytime-chic outfits that could carry into the night. For the working girl who doesn’t want to compromise her free, ethereal sense of style, Tam’s collection will have the boho-pros lining up around the block.
Color palette: Lustrous blues with deep eggplant, forest and orange
Mood: Exotic and free
Statement Pieces: Oval jacquard coat with Mongolian fur collar, Multi-color Mongolian zip front coat, One-shoulder with cloud appliqué evening dress
Front Row Name Drops: I didn’t recognize anyone of note

Runway Music: The shapes of the collection were so interesting, I didn’t even stop to listen.
