Ports 1961 Fall/Winter 2010 was driven by an exploration of discovery and invention. The collection seemed to unfold and mature as each model trotted out as a free-spirited beauty. There was old world feel in the details and the model’s untamed curly hair. Other elements included architectural silhouettes, and statement jewelry like ceramic and carved wooden necklaces. Leather hats and motocross gloves added some modern roughness. Though the colors and watery prints were very muted, the play on textures and combinations of different textiles like leather, jersey, knits, tweeds, wool, chiffon, organza and lame added a wholesome variation to this globally wearable collection. Designer Tia Cibani presented an overall beautiful experience from the first moment of silence for Alexander McQueen, to the dreamy melodic music to the ultra feminine yet empowering clothes.
