OBSESSED: CO|TE AW12...

I'm big time drooling over the AW12 collection from Italian brand CO|TE...

The simple wearable shapes are straight up my alley. I love the metallic short skirts, boyish thick knits and streamlined silhouette. There's a sort of stark linear graphic line running through many of the items. The dress with cinched in waist above is amazing. I love the longer sleeve length and high neck - contrasted with the short length it doesn't feel too grown up or too serious (neither of which I am). Plus, the contrasting colors give it a sort of sci-fi feel - anything that makes me feel like I should be hanging out with Captain Kirk in the Starship Enterprise gets bonus points in my books.

p.s. the cream jacket (below right) would be delicious to wear. I'm thinking, that if you were wearing it,  it would feel like you were getting a massive bear hug the entire day and that can only be a very good thing
