For her Spring 2010 show at New York Fashion Week, Charlotte Ronson drew inspiration from the ballerinas of New York circa 1980- a reference point which actually made for a really amazing collection!
Each look contrasted the sweet and airy with the tough and edgy. Ethereal pieces in ballet-pink and white abounded and all were toughened up with punk-rock studs, acid-washed jeans and tops, boyfriend shirts and jackets, and killer leather platforms. Even as the color palette shifted to edgier shades such as black and cerulean, the dancer-off-duty motif stayed intact with delicate sheer pieces, loose layers, and tulle incorporated into almost every look, either by being wrapped around the legs or hanging loosely off the side.
I especially loved the way these looks were put together and how disparate items were able to co-exist seamlessly. A crinkled blush chiffon top with a black studded sleeveless blazer and army green distressed shorts, a double breasted pantsuit with a plaid boyfriend shirt and a splattered army jacket, a beaded one-shoulder dress with an acid-wash leather vest- there were no limitations when it came to mixing and matching.
The leather shorts, distressed jackets, sharp blazers, sheer tops, floaty dresses- this collection was chock-full of fabulous pieces and has something for everyone. Trends:
