When I looked at the garments worn at the Mackage SS12 Collection, I questioned the aesthetic of the fabrics that were used. It was used to construct clothes that were neither too girly or motorcycle edgy. Instead, they lie between those two styles by the method of tailoring used by Eran and Elisa. They played with light fabric such as satin and linen and made it look sharp. As I took a closer look, I loved the masculine twist some pieces showed. This is evident from the buckle detail on white leather shorts, distressed twill jacket with black leather cuffs, and smoke print sheer dress. Some showed more of a feminine, much softer characteristic especially from the pleated skirts and chiffon shirts.

Thanks to Erin, I was able to attend this presentation. The combination of the muted color palette along with the outbursts of metallics and bright colors gave this collection a fresh vibe. Hints of leather detailing were used to show contrast in pleated shorts, short sleeve shirts, and sleeveless dresses, just to name a few. Leather was applied as trim, embroidery-and showed texture when some were perforated. Lengths varied but mostly mid or floor length. overall, the collection was sharp and simple.
