Brighten Up With Meredith Wendell Spring 2012

>> The Meredith Wendell Spring 2012 lookbook is in, and it's just the thing to perk up any dreary day.

"Spring 2012 was inspired by super-sporty '80's elements: sneaker materials like grosgrain canvas mixed with metallic leather, fat shoestrings, and neon," explains designer Meredith German. Sure enough, colorblocked shoulder bags are punctuated by citron snakeskin, sleek patent totes are adorned with vivid straps, and thick belts are woven in eye-popping leathers.

Click through to peek the entire lookbook, which was shot at Chapel Beach Club in New Jersey and — as usual — is so super dreamy it's likely to make you want to hop the next plane to somewhere beachy ASAP. "Our shoot inspiration is always a bit resort-ish," German says.
