Jill Stuart achieves color-blocking in a remarkable way for her Fall 2011 collection. Stuart uses vibrant jewel tones, such as, teal, red, emerald, and amber, while combining a little sparkle in a pleated ensemble. A fairy tale came to life, as a literal animal theme decorated below-the-knee silk dresses with large printed owls and foxes. Complimenting the animal inspiration from Heidi Specker’s photos of the Black Forest in Germany, Stuart’s collection had “Bambi” deer furs, leather accents, and chunky knits that are perfect for the fall. Jill Stuart’s Fall 2011 collection is feminine, flirty, chic, and made for the fashion-forward woman.
