Vera Wang Spring 2011

Vera Wang’s Spring 2011 draws on an emotional and creative inspiration from Quentin Tatantino’s “Kill Bill”.

It was a fusion of East meets West with a mixture of boyish urban sophistication and romantic otherworldly sensuality.

We saw culottes paired with either structured or loose fitted tops, Japanese silk floral print dresses, kimono blouses, wrap peasant pants and jersey tunics.

Key accessories included super high black and grey peep-toe booties, thick black sumo rope belts and Vera’s trademark statement necklaces.

I loved the obi pieces. Vera wasn’t afraid to go voluminous with her folds in this collection. With every editor in the front row, I can imagine these looks being selected for editorials.

Apart from the floral prints, the tulle layered dresses in spring colours of orange, baby blue and pink would be popular with young Hollywood. I just loved the flowing trains.

The models voluminous buns replaced the Snooki style the models sported during Vera’s Fall 2010 collection.

Front Row: Serena Williams, Zac Posen and Stephanie Pratt

Favourites: Aqua cascade gown and the aqua silk top with the cobalt pleated skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Uma Thurman, Renee Zellweger, Megan Fox, Halle Berry, Mariska Hargitay, Mila Kunis, Jamie Chung, Demi Moore and Hilary Duff

    AlthoughI don’t really get the kill bill inspiration, besides the Japanese influences, it is a really lovely collection but it seems a bit fall, in terms of the colour palette. Japan seems to have influenced a lot of runway shows this season.

    I’m totally in love with this collection. “Boyish urban sophistication + romantic otherworldly sensuality” is definitely the appeal. And the inspiration (Kill Bill) is totally badass.
