Though General Idea’s S/S 2010 was mainly a black and white collection, hot pink and a variety of kaleidoscope prints made their way onto the runway. The collection featured a new take on one of this past season’s popular silhouettes — sleeveless and short sleeved tops and trenchcoats, sporting exaggerated rounded and pointy shoulders — as well as drop crotch pants and shorts, gladiator sandals, and jumpsuits. A daring favorite (definitely not for the faint of heart!) were the trench-turned-jumpsuits numbers worn by all the models at the end of the show.
Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, served as the central inspiration for Douglas Hannant’s Spring 2010 collection, which heavily consisted of sculpted evening gowns and jersey dresses resembling more alluring versions of the toga. The location — the Plaza Hotel — and method of presentation — the dresses, quite literally, put up on pedestals — did well to compliment the elegance and caliber of Hannant’s delicate collection.
Kai Milla’s first collection after taking a well-deserved break for motherhood is flirty and fun. New structures, beading and embellishments add an exciting touch to tried-and-true silhouettes — in doing so, Milla’s beautiful garments are modern and trendy, yet timeless enough that they won’t go out of style any time soon.
