Bensoni Spring 2011

Like the name of the label, designers Benjamin Clyburn and Sonia Yoon combined the bohemian feel of seventies silhouettes with futuristic digital prints to create a time appropriate blend of pieces for Spring 2011. High waisted floor length and above-the-knee skirts were effortlessly paired with different patterned tops without looking busy or cluttered. The models sported Princess-Leia-as-a-raver braids, giving them a cool cosmic look. My favorite piece was a long flowy dress with a variety of black and white stripes simply cinched with a skinny brown belt; its simplicity and shape makes it perfect for a sunny picnic at the park or an evening cocktail party at a gallery.
