Catherine Malandrino presented the Malandrino Spring 2011 collection outdoors and the natural elements (including the large Milstein Pool) proved to be beautiful accessories. The designs were ornate and fluid, sparing no detail. In fact, Malandrino went for over-the-top, standout pieces; total head-turners.
Though Malandrino was inspired by Roger Capron, a French ceramist, her pieces were definite original works of art. Leather macramé was the fabric of choice and the most amazing use of it was the over-the-knee gladiator sandals. The watercolor prints were fantastically implemented and were seen on flowy dresses fit for red carpet debuts and flirty cocktails. She also showcased an uber eclectic halter jumpsuit that was both colorful and breezy with animalistic hues.
With the immense comeback of accessories, chunky jewelry pieces were key accents and were used to create a strong statement for the Malandrino line. Overall, the collection was beautifully done and had an authentic feel that is sure to transcend the season and become a colorful hit for Spring and seasons to come.
