Christian Cota Spring 2010

Some people may have only recently heard of Christian Cota, since he dressed Leighton Meester for the MTV VMAs last week but this is actually his 5th season.

The atmosphere was very tranquil as models posing whilst standing around moss pads.

The back-drop was a painted moody blue, which reminded me of a dark sky before it rains.

The designer called this environment an urban garden. This would explain the many floral pieces he presented – which were the key pieces in the collection- alongside spring white blouses, shorts and skirts.

Multi-coloured cocktail dresses, cropped jackets, sleeveless blouses bandeau tops paired with high-waist pants were also presented.

Each piece was adorned with chained jewelery from Litter which didn’t just accent a look, but it was often wrapped around a model to highlight each piece.

Heels also got the chain treatment, and even the hem of one models shorts.

I particularly loved the piece draped over the models shoulder.

The models sported 50s hairstyles with a bright red pouts.

Here is are some of my favourite pieces. You can view the whole collection at

    The collection looks super-wearable. I could easily picture most of those looks for the red carpet . The silhouettes are a little meh but some of his prints were really spot-on.

    The chain pieces are from LITTER ( or and they’re amazing!
