Spring 2011: Best of the RUNWAYS

3 Nov

The looks in the Peter Som Spring collection were simple, it was the neon colors that made it so interesting. Literally, I have never seen colors like this. The cuts and the designs were unique, but not as amazing as the colors themselves.

The Donna Karan show was desert inspired and everything had a neutral, earth tone — very Karan’s style. This one dress is so elegant, with the braided collar loosely holding the dress up. The pattern of the dresses literally looks like the earth. The full length, gown with the cuff is just a complete look.

The Yves Saint Laurent look I love because it is a matching crop top with long, maxi skirt with a bustle. It’s such a beautiful look and has pieces of other collections combined into this look — for example, it reminds me a lot of the Prada piece I wrote about earlier.

Proenza Schouler was one of my favorite shows of the season. It is gorgeous, innovative, classic, to die for, all of those adjectives. Talk about mixing patterns? The white/black tweed style blazer with the scoop style and thick piping covers the yellow and white block striped top that looks tweedish as well and the lime with black tweed style skirt. They’re so interesting and amazing. The simple, watermelon colored, oversized jacket has a small notch that changes it up from a simple style. I am so eager for the fall collection, it’s going to be phenomenal I have no doubt.

Very cool collection by Rag & Bone — as would be expected. They’re so innovative and unusual that it is no surprise they had an unusual line. The style of the bustier top reminds me of the VPL tank tops and the sheer bottom of the dress ties it all together as a simple look rather than dominatrix-ey.

Prabal Gurung had an amazing Spring show, these colors are just bright and bold and as you can probably tell I really admire when designers play with color in this way. Many of the cuts in the collection were repeated in many colors but all looked unusual from the different colors and patterns.

Ralph Lauren had a western inspiration. There were cowboy hates, cowboy boots, leather jackets and fun belts. This dress with the cut and pattern reminds me of the Wild West or Little House on the Prairie. I find these to be really beautiful inspirations, no idea why. I love the floral print and style.

The long sleeved chiffon looking, sheer shirt with nude, high waisted shorts is such a simple and beautiful look. This Rebecca Taylor one that the second the heat strikes, I will be wearing.

Sass and Bide is one of the most original designers. I don’t really understand the point of the thick collar but I love the olive jacket with nude embellishing on the shoulders and pockets. It goes well with the white piece with the same shade nude twisting fabric on the waist. These looks are original yet totally wearable — minus the collars of course.
