Boudoir D’Huitres Spring 2011

Designer Mimi Plange interprets the golden hues of South Africa in her Spring 2011 collection titled “Prey and Pray.” Animal prints, sexy bustier dresses, geometric cuts and wonderfully dramatic glasses in a thick gilded frame were the highlights of this collection. Buttery silk dresses in a soft safari style gave the edgy collection a nice contrast.

Designer Mimi Plange’s “Queen of The Night” fall 2010 collection was inspired by Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” and a heavy dose of 17th century luxury. Opera singer Sarah Callinan introduced the show with a theatrical performance. Plange’s garments featured a refreshing mix of sustainable organic products such as hemp and merino wool as well as leather and snakeskin. A pallate of rich blacks and deep reds dominated the show with embroidered embellishments. Other noteworthy details were the use of signature rose-knuckle rings and studded boots. Plange draws effectively from fashion history, offering wearable pieces for the modern woman.
