The Lela Rose Spring 2010 Ready-to-wear collection is absolutely luscious. With a color palette that looks like it was picked from the sea and sky during sunset, the collection further emphasizes Lela Rose’s penchant for color. Where one piece is subdued, another is bold and beautiful, either with blocks of color, a painterly print or a tie-dye job that any fashionista would be foolish not to give a nod to.
Considering all the color and patterns, the silhouettes were kept basic, with a mix of casual looks that work in the office or when you’re on your day-to-day errand run. Smart ruches and pleats, as well as flowy flounces and cascades served as the details for Lela’s designs, providing a little extra femininity in the looks. Things got a little sportier when light outwear was in the picture, most of which had chic color-blocking.
The show ended with evening look after evening look; crisp cocktail dresses that once again showed pleating and flounce details, then there were evening gowns beautifully draped in a deep emerald green, tourmaline blue, deep magenta and a glimmering yellow and white splat-like pattern.
Overall, Spring 2010 shares similarities to the Rose’s Spring 2009 when you look at how she works with colors and prints but this years collection is a touch more clean with a sportiness that doesn’t do too much to dominate her mostly lady-like attire.
