Wish Upon A Fashion Star
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star…
Like falling stars, cosmic prints are shooting into the fashion spotlight. From Miu Miu to Christopher Kane, designers looked skywards to be inspired by a kaleidoscope of colours and incredible prints.
Christopher Kane Resort 2011
Depicting the most spectacular scenes you would ever expect to see from your telescope, Christopher Kane’s Resort 2011 collection is quite literally out of this world. Explaining that he liked “the idea of explosive outwards expansion”, Kane created extraordinary prints which were transferred onto Silk Cashmere Knitwear. His varied silhouettes – from baby doll dresses to voluptuous trousers – created a collection that is light and feminine yet dark and intense. The collection is quite simply exquisite.

Looking to a different type of ‘star’ for inspiration, Miuccia Prada for Miu Miu explored the idea of celebrity. Of the collection, Prada says: “I was thinking about everybody’s obsession with being famous”. Models walked to the American Idol opening music and along an elevated wooden red dance floor. Big stars and neon-bright colours combined to make a style statement. The long-sleeved silk satin dresses (like the yellow one pictured right) hung beautifully around the body with box pleats and a thin waisted belt. The collection is elegant yet edgy. Bright yet dark. Miu Miu nailed it.
