I love: Collette Dinnigan’s A/W 2011 collection: “Portrait of a Woman”

Collette Dinnigan Autum-Winter 2011 collection: “Portrait of a Woman

Australia has recently produced some amazing fashion houses.  I came across this Autumn/Winter 2011 collection by Collette Dinnigan and fell in love. It’s classical, romantic, feminine, and bathed in bold colors and graphic lines.  Very aptly titled “Portrait of a Women,” I thought it would be the perfect day to introduce you guys to her, being International Woman’s Day and all.

Like the artist’s palette washed in sepia, “Portrait of a Woman” showcases a kaleidoscope of textures, a richness of silhouettes reminiscent of eras past and prints that encapsulate a uniquely sophisticated turn.

Structured shapes and sumptuous tailoring hark to the athletic luxe of true Argentinean equestrian, tradition re-imagined in the chimerical fabrications of leaden lace jodhpurs and metallic jacquard bustle back skirts.

Belle blossom, Italian lace brocade, noir French lace, Venetian wool suiting, Rococo embroidered organza and forest fur – all offer an interfusion of texture and tradition, light and shade.
