Wenlan Chia, a woman known for her feminine hand made knits and whimsical designs, stuck to that winning combination for her Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection. The looks include many dresses, tops and skirts that hit just above mid-thigh, which either flare out from the waist or stem down from a loose cinch; two styles that work well for a variety of body types.

For the trousered looks, it was chic skinny pants or loose with tapered ankles. But aside from your usual solid bottoms, Chia played with sheer fabrics and all-over prints, which made the pants the  eye-catchers of the collection. Sheer fabrics were also spotted as inlays for designs featuring geometric cut-outs, which made for a more provocative look compared to the rest of the collection.

Chia’s artistic aesthetic was definitely visible with her abstract prints and patterns that fell between graphic florals or nebular scenes, sometimes set against a striped knit with juxtaposed thick and thin lines. As for the colors, it was a palette of pastels and primaries amongst black and white; a common scheme for designers’ Spring 2010 collections.

If one were to sum up the collection, it would be fitting to say it’s the right balance between feminine and quirky, with looks that can satisfy any woman with an appreciation for graphics and art.
