Louise Goldin’s Spring 2010 Ready to Wear Collection looked rather like the set of a science fiction movie. Though it was a knitwear collection, it included short, flaring skirts, leather insets, and pointy cone bustiers. The collection has been compared to the late Gianni Versace’s mid 1990s looks with a dash of Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection for Madonna’s 1990 world tour. The collection featured pastel green, yellow, violet, blue, and lavender, done in baby doll shapes complete with leather bloomers. Her fabrics are self-made, right down to the lacy edging on dresses and the tulle included as inserts in some of the pieces.
Goldin is also the designer of a new capsule collection for Scottish cashmere purveyor Ballantyne, with a 40 piece collection including skirts and tops. Goldin won the Swarovski Emerging Talent Award in 2008 and has achieved fame for her knitwear, making her a perfect choice to join forces with Ballantyne.
