As soon as I received the email containing the look book for Ports 1961's pre-fall collection for 2011 I opened it with the speed of 10 bloggers live Tweeting at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. What I saw was very simple yet elegant gowns that remind me a bit of the lines used in the mid to late 90's and the wide leg trend continuing. The most exciting thing for me was the orange that was used in the collection like the burnt orange gown in the opening picture. It seems OJ&B has really been influencing the fashion scene recently! Let's check out the looks that I picked as my favorites.
Above: Loving this draped column dress. The down accessory her hair and that is used in this collection reminds me of the feather on Cher Horowitz's pen in Clueless.
Above: I think this makes a huge impact. I have always loved orange and blue together and people used to say I was crazy. Note the flare legged trouser keeping with the wide leg trend of Spring/Summer 2011.
Above: This asymmetrical draped dress adds a pop of color to fall and you know I am always down for color year round!
Above: Love this look for pre fall. Note how everything is matching though. Below: I just really love deep blues. Notice how this is also matchy matchy. Matching like this is hardcore 1990's although in the 90's the shoes would be the same color as the clothes.
Above: I leave you with this picture because all of the pieces are great separate and can be paired with lots of things. Also because the knit cardigan with tie is OJ+B orange!
I cannot wait to see the full Fall/Winter 2011 collection on the runway in February! Stay tuned!
