Carmelita Couture‘s Philly-based designer Carmelita Martell certainly knows her audience. After the 80s-inspired party dresses from SS09 and the playful FW09 collection, CC is preparing to make her fans salivate once again with the SS10 collection. Showcasing the quirky styles that Martell is becoming known for, the SS10 collection blends her love for travel, dance and the arts in fabric and form. Fans will recognize familiar shapes from previous collections, but Martell has expanded her focus and created pieces that flatter the wearer’s personality, as well as her body.
Dresses are still at the heart (and the best part) of the collection, but rompers, jackets, pants and skirts round out the collection and are featured in sheer organza, jersey, plastic and vinyl. No matter the material, every piece is pleated, tucked and folded for dramatic and flattering effect and certain to appeal to the bold gal in all of us.
