Cacharel SS2012 Top Picks

Hey Dolls,

French label Cacharel is now lead by two Chinese designers - Dawei Sun and Ling Liu. Although they are not well known, they've worked for Balenciaga, John Galliano, and YSL (between them). Their debut collection is not as witty as designs from the previous Cacharel designer - Cedric Charlier. Fairly new to the French couture arena, they did however manage to produce a soft, feminine, and French appeal to the line. The collection featured boxy jackets, satin tops, shorts, various prints, structured trousers, cotton dresses, etc

The warm floral-print on this jacket makes this piece Spring appropriate, and it's box-like shape makes it quite versatile. Wear it open with a basic tee inside, along with a pair of skinny jeans for a more laid-back look. Pair it with a button-down, and a neutral-toned power skirt for a more professional statement. 

Liu and Sun showed off their skills with the origami draping in this sweet, silk blouse. Delicate trousers along with this delicate blouse make for an overall tasteful look - quite wearable. 

The dresses and skirts were very tailored throughout the collection. This wholesome babydoll dress is neutral with slight pops of bright green, vibrant orange, and icy blue. Whether this piece is wearable (without alterations) or not is a tad questionable; it is quite adorable nonetheless.

Do Liu and Sun have what it takes to uphold the Cacharel brand ? You be the judge.
