MONIQUE LHUILLIER FALL 2011 RTW
Let me just say that I am all about this collection: simple, sultry, and very feminine. The minimal color palette of blacks, golds, and hints of red gave such a dramatic effect to each piece; along with the multiple uses of different textures.
Cheetah print, chiffon, silk, wool, Chantilly lace, and ostrich feathers were used to create an edgy flavor to sophisticated cocktail dresses and sharp pencil skirts accompanied with cropped jackets. It was almost like a dark twist on women's fashion in 1950's. And the gowns toward the end? Perfection.
Street Style love. REBECCA MINKOFF'S FALL 2011 RTW show was another one of my favorites. Not to mention, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp kicked it off with a live performance beforehand.
Burnout velvet, slouchy sweaters, drainpipe pants with snakeskin patches on the knees (obsessed), and a metallic twill bomber with leather sleeves and fox fur were just a few pieces that added a toughness to the entirety of the collection. I am a huge fan of blazers so when I saw the number of blazers with contrasting lining, I melted. The accessories were a great completion, with a mini quilted chain-handle bag and textured clutches of different colors.
To summarize: both of these collections are heaven on earth
