Why We Love: LaQuan Smith "Eclipse" Fall/Holiday 2012 - Coco & Creme

Designer to the stars LaQuan Smith, who has created original pieces for Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Tyra Banks and Sessilee Lopez, just released his latest collection for his namesake line, LQS.

LaQuan titled his collection which has a Fall/Holiday 2012 delivery, “The Eclipse.” The fashion-forward collection encompasses an array of textures, sharp silhouettes, bold avante garde shoulders, rich hues and a true New York City edge. The latter is not at all surprising as LaQuan hails from Queens and has always found inspiration in his surroundings.

“New York is where I’m from and the fashion there is so diverse. It’s always reinventing itself in ways that allow me to constantly keep creating,” he said. “This collection is empowering and I think that women should always feel empowered in their clothing.”
