Thanks to Mintbox, I literally had my head in the clouds earlier this week at a presentation of Walter Baker's Spring 2012 Collection at The Empire Hotel Rooftop Lounge.

Mixing urban and exotic, the collection offers a wide range of pieces including jackets, printed tops and dresses, and shorts. The long, flowy and feminine silhouettes are contrasted with constructed, super short ones for a girly but modern look. "My clothes tend to attract uptown girls with a downtown sensibility," says Baker.

The natural lightening and rooftop setting put the clothes in context but the cuts and styling comes off a little too "youthful" for me personally. What do you think?

And for fun...
