Fall 2011 RTW: Ports 1961

16 Feb

I always equated Ports 1961 with kind of off-road designs. An unpredictable and unusual but airing on the more conservative line. This collection was very sleek, chic and tailored. There was definitely a menswear influence that can be seen in all of the clean lines and professional looks and the little peek of collar out of many of the dresses. Differently than some collections, the cuts weren’t masculine — they were very feminine and clearly made to suit a woman’s shape. The patterns were my favorite part. They were really unusual with some looking hatched into the design and others subtly metallic and, of course, the pink set of looks. I thought this was a really well done collection that fit both the aesthetic of the designer and the consumers desires.
