For Fall 2012, the Frank Tropiano Collection proposes a stark contrast of black and white rendered in crisp tailored pieces juxtaposed with softly draped accents.
The materials are 100% Virgin Wool, leather, and silk georgette clip dots in varying sizes mixed together forming a very textural effect in the garments. The shapes, with a few exceptions, hover around the body in the form of shift dresses, cutaway blazers and trapeze blouses. There are some fitted cocktail dresses with leather trim and fringed shirts. The pieces work together and separately as sportswear but can also be paired for an ensemble effect.
