Milly Spring 2011

Spring was in the air for the Milly S/S 2011 Show! Designer Michelle Smith was inspired by the stylish, eccentric Upper East-Side Art Collector Peggy Guggenheim.

Bold geometrics that mixed with feminine florals and tribal elements dominated the runway. The bright color palette consisted of coral, green, orange and yellow.  The line also debuted an accessories collection: Milly Jewelry featured chain rope necklaces, encrusted bracelets and tribal inspired wood and agate necklaces. The Milly Handbag collection consisted of glossy patent, resin tortoise chains, shiny goatskin and tumbled nappa lamb. Featured were belted shift dresses, poppy dresses, striped cardigans, print dresses, print coats, slim pants, printed maxi dresses, tweed coats, cropped jackets mixed with long skirts, full, round skirts paired with slim bodices and fitted sheath dresses that were complemented by statement coats. Bold embellishments punctuated the luxurious look.

Wearing her collection would make any girl feel like a well-traveled, well-heeled socialite on her spring European holiday. The geometric Peggy Guggenheim glasses were a perfect finish touch to end the show.
