SS 2011 - the contemporary and the up & comers

a lot of brilliant designs on the contemporary, easy-chic side of fashion at the SS 2010 presentations.

Acne - the Stockholm brand brings us once again the forward visionary of being contemporary, modern hip. natty to the core, Acne women flowed around in the interesting setting of the Kensington Palace apartment looking nonchalant, breezy chic and cool.

love the vinyl skirt

long in red


Helmut Lang - one of my all time favorites. excited by the launch of the bag collection, the clothes are all in modern silhouettes and yet, they are so easy to wear as separates or ensemble. one particular item I like very much is the long skirt with the side slit. 

speaking of bags, it looks like bags next year will still be structured and smaller in size. spotted some beauties at Valentino and Lanvin. can't wait to get my hands on them. 



the up & coming lables - I'm in no place to make any predictions but I do hope these brands will be known to and loved by more. one thing I know for sure, I'm a fan. 

Carven - Guillaume Henry relaunched the french couturier by honoring Madame Carven's carefree, accessible style and keeping the brand's spontaneity. only into the second season since he took reign of the brand, he is again bringing us clothes with universal appeal, flattering styles of prêt-à-porter. I love love love every single piece in the collection. not sure why, I can see Alexa Chung being the muse wearing the Carven spring collection : )

Cushnie et Ochs - the design duo presented a solid collection which shows some influence of the Philo effect of clean aesthetic. Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs are dubbed "the next Proenza Schouler", there are a lot to anticipate from this young label. 

Edun - Sharon Wauchob's debut with the brand. 15% of the collection is made in Africa where one can see the ethnical details from the beadings and embroidery subtly blended into some pieces. 

Willow - from Australia. ready to change people's common view that fashion is still slacking behind the other fashion capitals from down under, Kit Willow keeps bringing us brilliant works of contemporary fashion. I came to know about the brand a few years back when I first visited Australia and had my eyes on the label out of the whole floor of womenswear in David Jones. spring collection uses quite a bit of digital prints inspired by the nature so it's called the "untamed wisdom".
