A Degree Fahrenheit, Spring/Summer 2012 Collection for Women

A Degree Fahrenheit, Spring/Summer 2012 Collection for Women.  The sheer materials have a surprisingly light feeling as they sit over the top of thick, black undergarments.  Sheer black on top of black pants.  Sheer gray, button-front dresses.  Occasionally gathered at the waist, some pieces are loosely-fitted.  Others, like the black, zipper-front swimsuit with cutouts on the side, and sheer, ruffled arms, balance form-fitting and loose, ruffled materials.

Some of the dresses have interesting lines sewn into them—a separate material—satin or silk, perhaps—to contrast the swaths of solid fabric that composes most of the looks in this collection.  There is an interesting coat dresses with ruffles and bunched material.  And, a full dress of sheer material folded on top of itself to form the body of the dress contrasting an earlier dress of sheer material stretched tight across the model’s skin.
