Stephane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture

My second show today was the Stephane Rolland Spring 2011 Couture presentation.

This is my 3rd season attending a Stephane Rolland show and each time is more beautiful than the last.

His attention to detail is second to none.

The powerful collection mixed structure with metallic finishing touches.

The necklines ranged from plunging to funnel plus the details were either gold hardware or a jewel embellishment at the waist, neck or shoulder.

The colour palette was more suited to Fall with burnt orange, mustard, chocolate, black and olive green, but he also presented a lot of white and nude looks.

I love the draping detail from the hips, the capes which seem to be his signature and the Princess Leia shoulders. It seems like couturiers aren’t willing to let the bold shoulder trend go just yet.

Instead of the usual white wedding gown, Stephane sent down a model wearing a fireball orange plunging jumpsuit with a cape that billowed as she stormed the runway.

This collection screamed classic elegance with touches of modernity.

Favourites: White funnel neck white dress with what looks like Maple syrup dripping down one side and the orange structured dress above

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Tilda Swinton, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Diane Lane, Kyra Sedgwick, Helen Mirren and Freida Pinto

    Gorgeous! I have already mentally picked three outfits for tilda (‘maple syrup’ dress, the one with gold detailign next to it, and number 6 – the strapless orange/burnt orange dress – not going to happen!). Gorgeous collection, I hope it is worn as beautifully on the red carpet!

    I love the first look, but by the fourth or fifth, I started to think it looked like Star Wars Ep. 1 to 3. Finishing off with crotch explosion and crotch brooch.

    I can see Rhianna in some of this, thinking about some of the things she wore last year…

    Thank you for taking the time to review, take amazing pictures and sometimes give us “behind the scene” looks on all those rising fashion designers! I must say that I am way more excited about this collection than of some more “established” fashion houses :)

    You rock!
