    Well, hello old friend. It was only a few months ago that we found ourselves reminded of United Colors of Benetton — thanks to a few lip-locked politicians — but that was only the start of the conversation. Among the designers and brands that we already look to for our wardrobe staples, we may have to make some room for the brand we'be been familiar with since childhood. Because it's making a welcome comeback.

    With the help of newly appointed creative director, You Nguyen, United Colors of Benetton's spring '12 collection is filled with casual separates in light knits and classic denim. But, what really stands out is (naturally) is the creative use and mixture of color. In its latest lookbook, Benetton has really drawn us in with an imaginative and unapologetic pairings of brights, neutrals, pastels, florals, polka dots, stripes, varying fabrics (the list goes on), that may just inspire you to forget everything you know about looks that "go" and start to think outside to box of possibilities.

    We don't know where all this Benetton boldness has been hiding, but we're hoping it sticks around. Click through for all the looks from their spring line.
