Guili Spring 2011

Guili presented a collection for a globe-trotting fashionista. Spring 2011 will consist of a worldly color palette with earthy greens and blues, burning sunset shades of ochre and golds, as well as shimmery neutrals. There was an obvious nod to ethnic inspirations in the ikat prints, intricate embroidery, Navajo motifs and Mexican scarfs fringes. Silhouette-wise, the collection was just like its traveling girl, as in allover the place. There was a-line, empire, shift and tent dresses, cropped tops, high and low waisted pants, harem pants, a skirt/belt thing and even an apron. As if she back-packed through multiple countries collecting various articles of clothing from different cultures and then paraded them all down a runway.
