There is so much to say about this collection. I could write a paragraph per outfit describing everything that I like about it. The overall collection is so eclectic and chic. The details are flawless and amazing. I love the shapes, fabrics, textures, collars, cuffs, pleats, & combinations!
You just have to examine and study styles up close to truly appreciate the level of workmanship that goes into in these designs. What appears to be a pattern, on closer inspection is entirely beaded, or sequined and embroidered. Pleats are designed and executed with expert precision. Textures are created like macrame! Ultra feminine ruffles appear; romantic or simple & sexy.
Styles that lean towards the casual are made utterly glamorous by way of the addition of either rows upon rows of pearl necklaces, bracelets and decorative pearl belts or heavy gunmetal linked chain incorporated with diamante designs. Thick, attention grabbing and blinged out bracelets layer over fingerless gloves. Other gloves are designed with tiny little peek-a-boo holes! There are necklaces that extend to cover the shoulders and are an integral design element that is SO creative! The trend setting touch for me, is a one ear earring feature, reminiscent of ear thread styles but heavier, with more prominent swing and dazzle.
See the detail section at the end of the post for close ups that I’m crazy about in this collection…. a picture being worth a thousand words, I’d better get on with the pictures! 🙂
