Tadashi Shoji S/S 2011

Tadashi Shoji continues the trend of ruffle embellishments, but adds his own special twist by turning the ruffles into rosette embellishments that cascade from the waist of the gown to the hem.  There are also elements of Madame Gres’ influence in the collection, evidenced in dramatic ruching, and a tiered Grecian effect.

Monique Lhuillier S/S 2011

Monique Lhuillier drew from the duality of the Garden of Eden, where what is both beautiful and forbidden has its rightful place. The show opened with a simple, beautiful blush gazar strapless, pleated petal-bodice cocktail dress, and built momentum as each series of looks referenced the polarity of innocence and seduction.

Marc Jacobs S/S 2011

It's typical for Marc Jacobs to go in a direction completely different than what's expected of him. While last season was all about neutrals, Jacobs went colorful and 70's glam for his Spring/Summer 2011 show.

Victoria Beckham S/S11

The collection, presented in an Upper East Side townhouse, is never groundbreaking, but Beckham's hands are all over it.

Siki Im S/S 2011

For his Spring/Summer 2011, Siki Im looks to feelings of isolation and detachment juxtaposed against an urban terrain where integration into mainstream culture causes friction and the possibility of new realities and identities. Many of the deconstructed pieces in this collection are reassembled as innovative, fashion-forward reflections on the young male’s quest for individuality while maintaining his group identity.

Michael Angel S/S 2011

What did work in this collection was Angel’s experimentation with texture. Latex layered over printed sarong skirts and men's midriff-baring collared tops nicely highlighted how a variety of textures and shapes can give a dramatic effect on the runway. However, the redundancy of Angel’s masculine shirts flattened what could have been an effective marriage of the masculine and the feminine.

Rebecca Minkoff S/S 2011

This season, Minkoff’s apparel was inspired by “the ultimate vagabond – a girl yearning for juxtaposed glamor, transfixed by reconstructed vintage and 70's-inspired frocks that include traces of seductress Bianca Jagger, and the late soulful Janis Joplin.”

Z Spoke by Zac Posen S/S 2011

Posen had three muses for his collection: a sportswear-clad brunette, a blonde who adores ruffles and probably cats, and a glamour-puss redhead. The various inspirations translated into a collection that mixed frilly party frocks, cartoonish tees, and colorful printed looks with staple black trousers, fitted cropped jackets, and flattering denim skirts.
