Presenting his spring summer 12/13 collection to an auidence with great expectations last week, Christopher Esber somehow managed to live up to the hype and then some. His new collection had a clinical touch; bright whites, clean cut and straight to the point. For someone so young, Esber really does have an eye for sophisticated, intelligent designs that are utterly wearable.

It’s his execution of the simple stuff that makes him stand out – the tailored shirts, pants and shift dresses are all perfectly in proportion and not the least bit boring. There were also a few standout pieces with impressive bead-work (namely the full length coat with intricately beaded sleeves) which I can’t wait to see up close. Considering he had everyone whispering comments of praise afterwards, with many calling it the show week, there’s no doubt Esber is destined for great things!
