Cynthia Rowley Spring 2011

Cynthia Rowley’s Spring 2011 collection was all about circles.

Swiss-cheese-like perforation were artfully placed on dresses, skirts, pockets, pants and tops. It was like the designer had taken a giant hole punch to the pieces.

Those pieces that weren’t perforated were decorated with pyramids of cabochons.

Apart from the circles Rowley also gave us sheer stripes and colour blocking.

The collection had a 70?s mod feel to it, with boxy shift dresses and slim fitting pants.

The colour palette was mostly neutral with loud pops of pink, mustard and coral which seem to be the colours of the season.

Key accessories included patterned ankle strap heels which were worn over sheer socks. Large statement necklaces and bags ranging from lady-like to slouchy clutches.

Favourites: The mustard perforated skirt and the grey cabochon top paired with the perforated tiered skirt

Front Row: Rebecca Romijn, Nigel Barker, Katie Lee and Lauren Bush

Who I See Wearing This Collection:
Maria Sharapova, Parker Posey, Rebecca Romijn, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Rutherford

    tnx for this NYFW report i think it’s brilliant… it simple but yet informative and best feature is definitely “who i see wearing this collection”… tnx a bunch…

    about this collection i really love it, it’s kind of simple but yet not that simple and my favourite is definitely grey dress.

    Stunning collection. My only issue is that Jonathan Saunders did perforated for fall so it is a bit derivative. Hope you having a good time. May I ask one favour can you also include some over 40′s in your who you see wearing the collection- we wear clothes too! (-:

    It looks like half of the dresses were hole-pinched
