I had a couple sads when I learned that Risto would not be presenting at New York Fashion Week. He was the one designer I had my little heart set on seeing the most. When I wear Risto, I feel like his clothes are the most easily indentifiable representation of who I am; in essence, wearing his clothes makes me feel the most like myself. It's utterly ridiculous to find myself with such voracious Comme-level devotion to a designer, but Risto really does have this startlingly creepy ability to design clothes that so perfectly capture my personality.
Anyway. I was sent over the lookbook for his new Spring/Summer 2012 collection and I am delighted to share it with you all today! There's whimsy, there's classic pieces, there's his signature exquisite knitwear, but most importantly (for me!), there's spooky feathers and ethereal peach-colored abstract prints. That long sheer feather dress in look #22? Um, NEED IT. Oh yes, it will be mine.
