We're still pretty burned out from NYFW, not going to sugar coat: We've seen prints across the gambit and processed enough lines to make our heads spin. So, it says something when a line manages to kick us out of our Fashion-Week hangover and leave us feeling more rehydrated. The spring '12 line from Araks caught our interest, with their perfectly poised models, looking spectacularly fresh in sexy sheer and subtle floral shapes recalling of 1920's tennis outfitting. We're into by the awesomely boxy and boyish look of the navy and green tapered trousers, and the button downs anchored by heavy-pleated skirts. But be sure to check the prints and textures to see what really struck our chords: holy, holy cable knit, sheer checkers, and gloriously-rich brocades. Enjoy!
