Straigt from my inbox to you, a sneak peek from last night's Collette Dinnigan show in Paris. The autumn/winter 2011 show, titled Portrait of a Woman, "encapsulates the mystique of a woman. Bold colours and graphic lines trace the mystique of an ingenious artist - vibrantly feminine, innately talented, ultimately creative". With highly textured fabrics and rich silhouettes the collection features structured shapes and sumptuous tailoring that harks back to the athletic luxe of the true Argentinian equestrian - a tradition re-imagined through lace jodpurs and metallic jacquard bustle back skrits. Belle blossom, Italian lace brocade, noir French lace, Venetian wool suiting, Rococo embroidered organza and forest fur - an interfusion of texture and tradition, light and shade.
