Ladies Who Lunch: Prete & Bruno Fall 2012!

Presenting their FIRST EVER collection after forming the company a mere 10 months ago, Prete & Bruno took New York by storm at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  As a designer, eveningwear has always been one of my passions.  So the debut of this new collection was of particular interest to me. 

For Fall 2012, Prete & Bruno presented a collection that emphasized femininity and a return to dressing that is both chic and elegant.  Speaking with the designers, they said that they were inspired with the great female icons of glamour such as Grace Kelly and Marlene Dietrich and the inspiration was evident in their work.
The Italian design duo worked with a minimal color palette of black, gold and their signature color for the collection, an intense jewel tone green.  The collection silhouettes included tweed and bouclĂ© sophisticated suits, sexy form fitting pieces, and flowy feminine dresses and gowns.

While the collection certainly concentrated on eveningwear, a lot of the dresses and suits can easily be worn for day and late afternoon by the woman with that certain “je ne sais quoi”!  Prete & Bruno created the collection utilizing only the finest fabrics, giving their collection that true luxe feel.

Prete & Bruno know who their customer is and have created a line that will definitely take care of her lifestyle needs!  An impressive first collection, I will be keeping an eye on them to see how they evolve!
