Summer Brings The Soft Touch

Comments Off 12 May 2008

Summer always brings the delicate wardrope to the surface. Runways and designers are capturing pastels and silks. With peaches, pinks, blues, and soft greens. Designers such as Versace, J.Mendal and Stella McCartney. Have captured the delicate softness and undeniable femininity to the womens closet.

Blumarine’s brings soft pinks and lace to the runways

Blumarine’s captures lace and silk together in this captivating pastel pink dress. Worn with an off the shoulder wool faux fur. Delicate and sexy, this little number is perfect as a summer cocktail dress or for that special garden party. For the confident women indeed.

Have I just died and gone to heaven?

This dress to me embodies everything elegant. Superb craftsmanship and design is combined with ruffles of color in subdued dusky rose. This dress is powerful, and to say the least if not…perfect. Why is it perfect? Look at the angular design matched with the ruffles and silk. Which in return creates softness with a solid shape to the garment. If one were not careful, you would think a statue of the roman goddess Athena just came to life and walked herself onto the runway! This is one of the best garments I have seen in many years. Just superb.

Versace dominates the runway

Since Donatella became the house hold name of Versace. She hasn’t done that bad a job with her collections. This dress is beautiful. Has clean lines with a peachy color. More structured than we’ve seen before, but most certainly beautiful enough to mention!

Oh Stella you are a clever designer. We love you for your natural usage of form, flower blues, and dreamy materials one can just melt into. I love this piece.

Marchesa turns on the soft green

Marchesa meets Jane Austin?. A little too ‘Pride & Prejudice’ for you? Well this dress is very gregorian in nature, with a modern touch. We can’t help but search to the past to describe some of these designs. But hence here we are quoting Jane herself. Long and beautiful with encrusted gems of gold inlaid to the sholders, belt, and hem. You can’t go wrong with this dress. I’m quite sure Jane Austin would of loved it too.

  1. I do love these dusty pastel shades…makes a color palette that I don’t normally love a little more palatable, grown up and sexy.
