Wow! Such amazing collections at New York Fashion Week. Gorgeous. So much inspiration.
Now this Libra is finding it very hard to pick one design to draw today.
Betsey Johnson? Proenza Schouler? Diane von Furstenberg? Jason Wu? Carolina Herrera? Alexander Wang? Anna Sui? Rodarte? sigh

Tsumori Chisato S/S 2011

Tsumori Chisato showed her Spring/Summer 2011 collection in Paris. This year marks her 20th Anniversary.

What a feast for the eye. Colours galore!
Nothing minimalistic here, like many of her Japanese colleagues. It is girly and poppy.
Lots of her trademark felines, lots of graphic prints and basic colours.

Happy Valentines Day


Miu Miu Spring 2011

Miu Miu at Paris Fashion Week.

I love this collection. It is very young and lively with starry prints and bright colours. And it sure is pretty. There are influences from the 70's and 40's, but it all feels very modern.  Lots of graphic motifs appearing on belted, silk pleated dresses. There are explosive star shapes, swans, snakes and lightning bolts. Contrasts are found in the neon accents and leather jackets.
The shoes are amazing.  Strapped shoes in funky colours like neon and metallics.

Great collection Miuccia!
