What makes designer clothing so appealing? Is it due to the respected name? The sophisticated design? The quality? For me, the answer mostly lies with design and quality. When I pick a designer piece, I choose wisely because I don't have money sprouting from my ass. I make sure that the price matches its worth. So when I discovered (212), I immediately loved this brand for what it stood for. They strive on maintaining quality over the production of their garments and offers women a contemporary clothing line that's more accessible at an "affordable luxury" price. I think the youthful, sophisticated, yet sexy silhouettes represents everything they've claimed to be. Below are photos from (212)'s Fall 2010 collection featuring the Lee Tank, Carrie Wool Bomber, Kelly Dress, and Nora Open Back Dress. Click here to view more from current and past collections.
