More Spring 2011

Victoria Beckham
This season, Victoria Beckham said she wanted to celebrate a woman's curves with minimal pieces.  Her usual corset style dresses were only down to one in this show, instead she used oval panels to accentuate the right places and have a more comfortable piece.  She also only used only size 6-8 models.  There was an interesting color scheme, "Cadillac pink", mandarin orange, bright yellow, a purple jacquard print dress, and some white and black.  Beckham definitely ventured out in her collection this season with more delicate and flowy fabrics.  Beckham said that "My style has loosened up a bit,"and that showed in this collection.  She also introduced her handbag line which showcased ladylike styles, one named of course 'Victoria'.  The shoes were rose-gold pumps designed by Brian Atwood (made to match the Rolex David Beckham bought her for their anniversary.  Beckham also narrated the whole entire collection describing her inspiration and thoughts on each dress that came out, I thought that was interesting.

Look fitting shift, you can see the oval panels showing under her chest
A vibrant and slouchily draped silk mini dress
Loved these sparkly sunglasses that made an appearance only a couple of times in the show.
My favorite piece of the collection was this bright white dress that had a great structure on the bottom and a silver cinched belt.
Carolina Herrera
Herrera said her collection was inspired by photographs of a family wedding that was brought in by a Korean seamstress, "The hats and costumes and details were just so fantastic, I asked to see more.  They bought me books, and then I spent several days visiting the Korean Museum in New York.  I was captivated".  Many of Herrera's gowns were covered in large botanical prints and smaller floral prints were on some of the day dresses and pantsuits, you could tell inspiration came from kimonos as well.  The clothes and ornamentation was so beautifully crafted, as always.

A beautifully draped kimono style dress, I love the color!
This was my favorite!  Such an unexpected twist for Herrera.  From the bow on the top, to the ruffled waistline, all the way down to the large floral print, I loved it!
Badgley Mischka
Mark Badgley and James Mischka were inspired by the glamour and glitz of the 1988 film White Mischief.  The colors exuded springtime; pale pinks, powdery blues, bright whites, and pops of brighter pinks here and there.  The clothes were accessorized with chunky crystal bracelets, platform sandals, and funky hats.  The designers also mixed in their contemporary line, Mark and James.
