Dusen Spring 2010 Dresses

Who said hard work doesn’t pay off? The first store order of Brooklyn based, Ellen Van Dusen’s collection, with her aptly named label ‘Dusen Dusen’, was sold out within one week. And did I mention, the whole collection being all hand sewn? Damn, our girl had some stamina and patience, and aren’t we glad!

With the epic success of previous collections by Dusen, she has come through with more fire for her latest spring 2010 collection. Showcased at the Pool Tradeshow, the wait was finally over and Dusen Dusen’s spring 2010 collection was unveiled. And we are not disappointed! We are glad to see Ellen Van Dusen stick by her signature style of vintage inspired fabrics and sick, bold prints for her latest offerings. Dusen has gone so far as to keeping within the lines of her usual all-body-type flattering shapes and cuts of the awesome dresses – all clinched in at the waist with a tiny ‘poof’ of the skirt to further emphasis a small waist line, which all the ladies love their dresses to do no doubt. Dusen’s skilled past in refitting vintage dresses whilst in high school has inspired the dresses in her Dusen Dusen collections to be reminiscent of renewed vintage dresses, that we see in every other vintage store the world over. However, having the Dusen Dusen label, it has given her the opportunity to design refreshing new crazy, tribal graphic prints that we have all fallen in love with.

The latest collection shows a real growth within the brand, with the prints being just as amazing as before, but on more of a subtle level, with the prints and color pallet of black, white, turquoise and hints of the bleched denim complimenting and coinciding with one another perfectly.

The addition of the late 80s/early 90s inspired crop tops to the Spring 2010 collection has upped the ante for this fresh brand. This simple, everyday basic with the Dusen Dusen twist is what we love about these crop tops! Teamed with a pair of skinnies or skirt, and we all know we are good to go, effortless fashion – we do adore. The in-trend exposed, contrasting coloured zip is another feature Ellen Van Dusen has incorporated onto the crop tops, which were previously seen in earlier collections of the label’s dresses , making the collection consistent through and through.

Oh, and the backpacks, too cool for school for real! School is just an excuse for us to wear backpacks, especially ones that are as hip as the selection in Dusen Dusen spring ’10 collection. Personal favourite? The beloved bleached denim one of course!

Bold prints, body hugging, exposed zips, crop tops? – Dusen Dusen Spring 2010, you are screaming my name!

The colors may not be so much BAM! in your face like in previous collections, but the maturity of the designs, prints, along with the hot-ass crop tops and body hugging skirts, still leaves an unforgettable impression on us all.

Dusen Dusen goods are availble at Duo NYC.
