Boy Meets Girl®: Spring/Summer 2011 Collection
“We have only this one life so we must live it fully, without fear or regret. Our experiences create our identity and individualism, so the more experiences we have the richer we become. This collection has that richness of experience on display.”
– Boy Meets Girl®
Inspired by the intrepid traveller, the Boy Meets Girl® Spring/Summer 2011 collection is full of gorgeous separates that can be easily interchanged. The muse: an energetic, free-spirited girl who will be travelling all summer with a wardrobe that can take her anywhere she wants to go; from New York to Paris, day to evening.
In a neutral colour palette of black, grey and khaki with hints of light blue; the Boy Meets Girl® collection is full of interesting separates and unexpected detailing. Cut-outs, zips and shapes; reveal different areas of the body with subtly and sophistication. When models turned on the catwalk, the back of their looks were also equally surprising. Many pieces had been cut into strips or transformed into seemingly different tops- yet all fell perfectly around the models bodies. Striped Boy Meets Girl® gloves and knee high socks added the finishing touches to this cool collection.
The collection covered all bases and included: trousers, shorts, dresses, skirts, t-shirts, tops and jackets. Pieces were created in comfortable, luxe materials that also flatter female curves. Overall the collection exuded the effortless chic vibe of the brand.
Uptown Twirl Must-haves:
I love the white off the shoulder tee with the Boy Meets Girl® logo full of coffee beans! My other favourite look is the khaki shift dress with front zip. Both so wearable, yet fun and unique.
