What a difference a year makes.
When I posted about Colette Dinnagan’s Spring 2013 collection last March, it seems like her “woman” was more prim, more conservative. Now, her new muse is absolutely more revealing.
The collection starts off very constraint and gets more “loose” or should I say “sexy”?
Is this maturity or just showing an alter ego?
No idea, but as a whole, I think the details stand out, the actual garments, well, you be the judge….
I like this little lace tee, a silhouette that was seen in so many spring collections.
This is the back of the dress:
On the flip side to that, the sequins on this dress reminds me of the burberry spring collection English rose motifs, coincidence?
I like the back of the swing jacket with the inverted box pleat.
More evidence of the 3-D flowers as shown just recently in the Christian Siriano collection.
I was intrigued by the color combo most of all. The red flowers on this blue just pops but once again, is it pretty or gaudy?
I can’t help but think, it’s a perfectly good dress, lovely center pleating at the waistline, high neckline, fit and flare silhouette, but is the flowers to much?
This bright two tone blue ruffle dress made me squint.
I was looking at the cut out at the waistline thinking, is it just me or that bodice doesn’t fit correctly, looks like its gaping.
and the back:
I like the two tone coloring, don’t know about the rest of it.
She also did some slip dresses which is trending this year.
A closeup of this dress shows how beautiful the beading is on the bodice and the incredible lace fabric used.
The beading on this one is pretty as well and I love the colors she used for the sequin embellishment.
But yet again, I don’t know about the tie-ties on the shoulder though, this reminds me of those Bath towel dresses.
Well, I guess a very expensive bedazzelled "towel dress"!
After she did this collection, she announced that she was closing her main line and I can see the vast difference between last year's and this one, so I wonder how much effort went into this collection at all.
