Frank Tell S/S 2011

Known for his use of embossed leathers and hand-knit mohair concoctions, Tell didn’t stray far from house favorites for Spring 2011. Even the setting looked a little déjà vu, with its fluoro-lit backdrop. But that’s how his audience likes it: funky, familiar, and oh-so-Frank.

Araks S/S 2011

Inspired by photographs of early 20th century Dutch farmers, Yeramyan Araks’ collection had an androgynous quality that worked in spurts, but seldom enhanced the feminine silhouette. Her most successful and commercial garment was a beautiful silk khaki, two-button blazer with matching silk khaki linen trousers.

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.

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.
