Fashion Week: Duro Olowu Fall 2011 RTW

I know many of you fashion enthusiasts are following the coverage of New York Fashion Week, but I couldn't resist sharing some of the collection of one of my favorite designers, Duro Olowu.  All of his pieces both clash and yet fit together at the same time in a really organic way.  His collection makes me want to pack my bag and take a trip to Africa or Mexico (two places that inspire his work).  Who am I kidding, I don't need an excuse to take an international trip : )

Fall 2011 RTW - Duro Olowu

In a description of the collection on Style.com, Olowu stated that, "My clothes are about joy."  Well definitely agree with his statement, I feel joyful just looking at his beautiful clothing.

Camera Woes and 2011 Rachel Roy Resort Collection



Images: Style.com

Recently, I went to mount my camera on my tripod to take my regular outfit shots when my camera tripod tumbled and my camera fell face down on its lens. After my initial shout of anguish, I tried to fix it to no avail and then realized it's probably still covered under its warranty, so as soon as I can make it to the post office, my camera will be shipped to a repair center to be fixed. I'll either have to use my old Kodak camera that is several years old, or rely on the kindness of friends/family to take my outfit photos until I get my Canon Powershot back. *Smh*

In the mean time, here are a few of my favorite looks from Rachel Roy's 2011 Resort collection. I love the color palette used in this collection and could imagine myself wearing many of the pieces in the collection in real life. This collection makes me want to plan a vacation to an Italian city like Rome, Venice or Milan. I can almost visualize myself wearing some orange palazzo pants and a straw hat while walking around Rome eating gelato. I'd also practice what I remember from my high school Italian classes with everyone I meet... A girl can dream right?

I'm really feeling the print mixing and 'global' feel of the Dries Van Noten spring collection. I's have one of each piece above if my budget allowed.

Ready for Spring: Prints and Color From Duro Olowu



I've seen a few pieces from designer London-based designer, Duro Olowu's spring 2010 RTW collection on a few other blogs, but I thought I'd post a few of my favorites. Colorful prints saturated with vibrant colors never go out of style for me, but it is nice to see them in recent collections from designers.

Suno Fall 2010 Ready to Wear Collection





I'm still wading through the fall rtw collections from fashion week, but the Suno collection from the design team of Max Osteweis and Erin Beatty really caught my eye. I love the mix of prints, florals and textures from this collection. Budget willing, I'd wear every single piece from this collection. A platform heel is also a must-have for a petite lady like me.
