Val Garland for MAC created an earthly, pottery inspired look to compliment the collection.

Hair was styled by Laurent Philippon for Bumble and Bumble. A side parted, loosely braided bun was pinned onto the left side of the head, covering the eyes for a more mysterious effect.

The presentation was held outdoors on one of the coldest days of S/S ’11 NYFW. Despite the cold, the models pulled through, and drew a huge crowd to the Grand Promenade, including many celebrities.

VERDICT: One of those rare collections where I can say I’d buy and wear nearly every item. Gorgeous colors and prints, airy, flowing fabrics, and impeccably woven leather macramé made this collection one of my favorites of Spring 2011. I’ll be especially vigilant stalking stores for the knee high lace up gladiator sandals.

  1. I can’t believe how stunning everything is! I love the combination of the leather and the macrame. And those gladiator type shoes–absolutely beautiful!! The detail on the clothing, the jewelry (oh I LOVE the jewelry!), the bags, and the shoes is unbelievable.

    I can’t stop looking at these photos

    • I feel the same way! This has got to be one of my favorite overall collections ever. I would wear every single piece. I love that the accessories were given just as much detail as the clothing. Every piece is beautiful.
