Wish Upon A Fashion Star

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star…

A Fashion Trend That Will Sparkle Across The Universe

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.

If you want to lounge by the pool with Gucci and ooze pure siren appeal or/ channel Betty Paige a la Dior style; the Spring / Summer 2011 campaigns will carry you away on a high fashion fantasy.

Featuring IT models of the moment, from Karolina Kurkova to Karlie Kloss and Anja Rubik, the campaigns have been captured by some of the most renowned fashion photographers working today – Steven Meisel for Dior and Mert & Marcus who lensed the campaigns for Miu Miu, Givenchy and Gucci.

I especially love Fendi’s S/S11 collection and the photo campaign featured above. Anja Rubik returns for a third consecutive season as the face of Fendi. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Rubik is ultra chic and just stunning for the luxury brand. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE FENDI S/S11!
