Winter collection 10-11
South Africa is stepping slowly in Autumn, and in the mean time Paris had just finished the Pret-a-porter shows for Winter 2010-11.
So let’s have a good look and study the trends a year in advance!
I choose Isabelle Marant because i thought it was a perfect collection for stepping gently into Autumn. Please don’t burn the steps and get over dressed, i know you are impatient to wear those boots and those coats. But take it slow, it is getting colder but the sun is still out, and winters are always long enough to get bored of wearing BLACK. So don’t get over-board with too DARK colors, Isabelle Marant uses Semi-colors, lots’of Greys and Browns. You will have the rest of winter to wear Black!
The Jeans are rolled up to the ankles, with ballerines (no socks) that reminds us a little bit of the 60’s. And wearing long Jackets on top of a thin material T-shirt gives us still the chance to take off the jacket and get a flavor again of the late summer. The designer is playing with the Different Materials, mat colors with shinny Jeans or even Leather, thick materials with fins.
Kenzo hippie winter collection
Fabulous collections!! Amazing materials, that will sing with the wind. Great combination of Wools, Silks and Cashmeres. Lovely print that would reminds us of the Indian summers and that you can mix up as much as you want and the way you fanny. The collection is very Chic, trendy and relax at the same time, it fits perfectly Cape town locations!! But the signature of the look is mad by the hat and the boots, not always easy to wear together. The trick is to pick the right items that would suit each other, good leathers and wools, comfortable, elegant and hippie, at the same time!
Love love love this collections.
