After attending the lovely designer offerings of Brown Thomas last week, it is our great pleasure to bring you their spring summer 2011 collections.
Have a look at our footage direct from the front row (4 min 25 sec). Unfortunately, some of the models were literally on top of us!
But hopefully you get a feel for spring with looks from D&G, Prada, Celine, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang and Carven.
My personal favourites of the show included the modern minimalism of Stella McCartney’s over sized blazers, the understated simplicity of Celine’s white shirts and the masculinity of the borrow from your boyfriend oversized shirts from Dries van Noten .
An Alexander McQueen white Grecian dress wowed most of the front row while Mary Katrantzou emerged as a one to watch for 2011 with her digital print dresses (pictured above) which, I felt, had a hint of McQueen’s 2009 digital print collection.
Halston Heritage, a lust after label coveted by many last year due to Sarah Jessica Parker’s involvement, showed two silk jumpsuits for spring 2011, key to the 70’s trend that’s “in” this season. These were beautiful to look at in purple and pastel blue but pretty unforgiving on most figures.
The Victoria Beckham dress collection finished the show but the mostly cream or dusty pink collection of shift, mini and floor length (in black) dresses just didn’t do it for me this season, in contrast to last season’s lovely reds and nudes.
