Abbe Sarah Kramer is one of our five runners up in our Blog for Saks contest with IFB. Check out her coverage of Parker’s fall 2012 collection that earned her the nod:
One of my favorite contemporary designers of fall 2012 in regards to apparel would be Parker. This season, they incorporated sparkle and sequins into each piece, adding punch and panache. Not only was this look a top hit in magazines and the world of fashion, Parker designed many casual, affordable evening dresses that could be worn for multiple occasions. They are good fit & most of clothing could be targeted at a wider range of ages. While the younger girls lean towards the sequin dresses, the older prefer the sophisticated Parker blouses. In terms of jewels, handbags and accessories, my vote is Alexander McQueen. I adore how he can incorporate a skull into a expensive, statement piece, whether being displayed on a rang, scarf or necklace. Each of these designers complement one another; pairing a simple Parker dress with an evening Alexander McQueen bag would be that ideal go to outfit with a theory blazer and nude pumps!
