Joy Cioci's Fall 2012 Collection

First impressions mean everything and when a cute puppy greets me as soon as I get off an elevator then you already won me over. Upon walking out of the elevator onto the bright sunlit Joy Cioci's showroom I was not only greeted by warm smiles but also the sweetest dog ever, Ace. The warmth of the sun and the clean sleek showroom was the perfect backdrop to her racks of clothing that held her Fall 2012 collection. Lined up against the window the collection was neatly placed into rows and sections that was thoughtfully color coded and selected-- darks and grays on one rack, oranges and reds on the other, so on and on.


Cioci's Fall 2012 collection was all about "seductive survival" which was easily seen in her prints, fabric choices, and cuts. Each of her fabrics reflected each other-- the bright orange leopard print was reflected in multiple pieces along with her snake skin prints, even the use of lace and cable knits were paired with each other. Her use of light flowing fabrics and sheers mixed with interesting pattern played the important role in the seductiveness of her clothing. This line is all about femininity, youth, and feeling empowered by your body.








I haven't been in love with the whole peplum trend but I'm in love with Joy Cioci's leopard print peplum top. This top is toned down in the sense of the peplum-- color and print not so much which probably helps me love it even more. Some of the peplums that I have seen in-stores and on bloggers are to exaggerated to me this top to me is more dainty and actually wearable for most average woman. The weight and the way it falls seems less scary and makes me want to try it on. For girls with hips and curves can see my slight fear of the peplum...we don't want to make ourselves seem wider then we already are. But the way this falls just seems that it wouldn't extend out but fall perfectly extenuating the hips.


I've always have had a love/hate relationship with fur. The environmentalist/animal lover in me hates the idea of killing animals for it's fur but the fashionista in me can't help but find it deeply beautiful (when done correctly). As soon as I saw the white jacket with the fur vest I couldn't help but fall in love with it. It was crisp, feminine, and not over done or worked. Cioci has a knack for keeping pieces simple even when they are grand. This piece stands out on a level all on its own with the tiered fur.


I'm head over heels in love with Joy Cioci and her Fall 2012 collection. I'm deeply impressed by this whole collection-- her use of colors and prints are impeccable. I'm a fan of designers that are unique; who have their own ideas, designs, prints, and techniques. I also love designers that are genuine in their personality and their work. There is nothing but genuinity in Cioci's Fall 2012 collection.
