Elisa Palomino Autumn/Winter 2012

I was pouring over the most recent runway collections, mainly Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid, Autumn/Winter 2012 and I was absolutely floored with the Elisa Palomino show. I, admittedly, had never heard of Elisa Palomino and if I had? Well, she didn't stick in my memory. After this collection, I don't think I will be forgetting any time soon.

Fresh and colorful, the contrast of colors in the accessories, garments and even the makeup, make this collection hard to keep your eyes off of. While I won't be wearing florescent pink blush any time in the near future, the pop of color completely makes the look for me. Just looking at Elisa Palomino's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection really leaves me inspired to work with bright colors, and even pull some bright colors from my closet this week.

I don't think that fashion always has to be wearable. I think that if you make an artistic statement, like Elisa did with this line, that there is room for it, especially when it is inspirational. Since we are in such a visual age, why not push boundaries or have no boundaries at all...

What do you think of the collection? Is it wacky in a good way or tacky, throw it out bad?
