Ports 1961 Spring 2011

Ports 1961 Spring 2011 collection was somewhat of a debut, with sister Fiona taking over the creative reigns from Tia.  Drawing her inspiration from the 19th century Northern African desert travels of Isabelle Eberhardt, she brought together the contrasting elements of such a terrain.  “The sensuous curves of sand dunes” expressed through fluid draping came together with the “angularity of rock” manifested in the tailored silhouettes.  The colors were various sun drenched neutrals, off-set with an oasis of jewel tone brights like emerald, amethyst and sapphire.  There was also an assortment of texture and fabrics, silk, cotton, linen, knits and suede.  The collection was mostly contemporary separates, but also included some evening wear adorned with crystals and embellishments.
