Spring Summer 2012: MANISH ARORA!!!

Manish Arora- the name brings to mind countless colors, intricate embroideries, heavy metallics, crazy prints. Now chosen as the Fashion operations head for Paco Rabanne, Manish is to unveil his collection for this spanish label on tuesday.
His own label for SS2012, was showcased last week, and what we saw there was more wearable pieces. Not that 'crazy' was eliminated completely, but Manish quoted that he wanted to bring normality to the label, in order to mature and distinguish it from the Paco Rabanne show. Normality, though was as far away from this collection as it could be. The pieces were wearable but with their unique elements of embroidery, fur, colors, etc like always. There was a beautiful flow to the collection with bright summer colors popping up and some very beautiful black and white pieces.

Also to be noticed was the fact that the label once known to be loved by celebrities for its avant garde atyle was now ready to be noticed more by the masses for a daily wear, casual and fun brand, but with a twist of stylisng so unique, its not for the faint hearted!!
Now we are just waiting for tuesday, so that the big surprise ( paco rabanne show ) can be unveiled.

["At Paco Rabanne, Arora's job is to renew a house founded in the 1960s by the extravagant Spanish Basque, famous for his revolutionary use of new materials like plastic and aluminium.

When Rabanne stood down in 2000, the house -- which is now owned by the Spanish group Puig -- tried its luck with a string of designers but ended up winding its fashion operations down in 2006 to focus instead on perfume.
Looking back at the Basque designer's work over the years, Arora said he "was trying to imagine what Paco Rabanne should look like in 2012. I made the collection keeping that in mind."
"Of course there is shine and metal, I love all that. I like metallic shine, so did Paco Rabanne. So both will be there."
But for the label's comeback collection, Arora also drew inspiration from the organic work of the Indian-born British sculptor Anish Kapoor."
