Heads this year will have no choice but to turn with the inability to ignore Spring/Summer 2011 line designed by Korean avant-garde mastermind, Choonmoo Park. Each piece included in the ensembles shown were brilliantly adorned with intricately sublime details preciously worked into not only the front, but also the back of each look. These details ranged from diagonally crossing demure lines stretching across translucent opaque white tops, to an extra divine back-drape innovatively created to give the look a luxurious flounce. Although the theme and name of next spring’s line is entitled “d’air,” the fine-quality materials and ethereal thought process behind the art gave the line a water-like rippling effect of success.
The soft yet dramatic range of colors varied from ivory white, to beige, to deep denim blue, and to satiny black. The softness and lightness of the color of these fine-quality materials are reflected into their construction of loose yet attractively form-fitting outfits that show off the naturally elemental curves and structure of a woman’s body. The only sense of density stemming from this line came from the sophisticated utilization of well-tailored denim tops and jumpsuits, detailed with zippers and hook-and-eye trimmings.

In a single, pure word: Stunning. This time around, Binetti really outdid himself with fantastically dramatic, yet demure romantic looks that ranged from gowns that only previously existed in dreams, to wearable day-to-day outfits meant still for luxury. Each complete look was perfectly topped off with tasteful touches of beaded, jeweled, and sequined (metallic) embellishments. The forefrontal gown presented first instantly set themood for the rest of the line with a shock-factor caused by a branching display of metallic flowers etched onto a beautiful floor-length white tulle skirt, topped off with a well-structured metallic silver cut-out sweetheart top, with jeweled double-racer back straps. The main theme of earthly elements and flowers clearly shone through the production of Binetti’s twenty-two looks, each reflective of the origins of its inspiration.
