Best of the Spring/Summer 2011 Runways

9 Feb

Picking only one look from an Elie Saab collection may seem impossible, but I didn’t even have to think twice. This is one of the most elegant gowns I’ve ever seen. The matte grey color has so much character and the structured quality of the shoulder wrap and long slit. Of all the Saab dresses that radiate current fashion, this one is without a doubt my favorite.

I’m not a fan of Tommy Hilfiger, but this is a pretty great look. The small, cropped blazer with the black piping is fabulous and the small bustier has a bow in the middle which is just adorable. I love bows and how current they are now. The sheer, mini skirt is great too. This isn’t a high fashion look, but it is definitely one that has style.

This Gucci collection was one of the best collections I have ever seen from the fashion house. The main theme was a neutral color paired with a bold color in a one-piece look with the style and little something extra coming from the way that the material folds to create a feminine look and a splash of gold in each look. For such a defined theme and structured line, each unusual piece has a new quality and special thing. I love this mini, it’s got a warp top which is so cool and the bold orange which is brought out even more intensely by the gold belt.

This was such a fun Carolina Herrera line. There was a floral theme but it manifested differently than in other lines with the theme, like Marc Jacobs’ leather. While some looks had floral prints or colors, some, like this gown I chose, were printed with the pattern of a seed bag. What a cool, innovative take on the floral, Spring idea.

Valentino had such a light collection this season. The colors were typical with Valentino — reds, pinks and neutrals — but they were more unusual cuts. There structured swirl adds depth to the light, nude, sheer dress and pushes it from a simple look to resembling Couture.
