Recently I attended the Starworks Group Spring 2011 press day.
The gorgeous venue in London had 3 floors of designers including Nicholas Kirkwood, Marios Schwab, Julien Macdonald, Alexis Mabille, Roksanda Ilincic, Pollini, Pauric Sweeny, Swarovski and Kate Spade New York.
I made a beeline for the shoes and I questioned why – with some many variety of heels and colours on display – that black pumps are even an option for most celebs.
I loved the wood carving on the Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte heels. I’m obsessed with finer details like this.
Also on display were the Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung sexy sandals with the neon ankle straps and Nicholas Kirkwood for Peter Pilotto shoes with hallow heels.
Unfortunately I missed the Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2011 presentation so I was glad to see the looks up close. I loved the colour palette of hot pinks and icy silvers mixed with blue and orange jeweled tones.
Julien Macdonald’s Spring 2011 collection looked even more like sexy lingerie at the press day as the looks hung from the thinnest spaghetti straps. These looks definitely need to be worn in Spring.
Alexis Mabille’s Spring 2011 collection displayed lots of full skirts and his signature bows.
I loved the accessories, especially the marine blue necklace.
Marios Schwab’s Spring 2011 collection had a hard rocker edge on the runway, but seeing them up close I got to appreciate how feminine this collection really is.
Giles’ Spring 2011 Swarovski encrusted gown has to have a red carpet moment. I would love to see this dress on January Jones during awards season.
In one corner of the venue it was swelling with many Pauric Sweeney Spring 2011 bags and clutches.
I loved the sorbet colours which were presented alongside more neutral colours but there was also pops of yellow, pink and blue.
A Pauric Sweeney bag has always been very high on my wish list and those taupe bags are begging to be my next arm candy.
Nicholas Kirkwood is creative director of the celebrated Italian footwear label Pollini.
Starworks showcased a large selection of Pollini shoes in a variety of colours and styles.
I’m loving those red ankle boots.
