Vena Cava Spring 2011

Spring 2011 was inspired by the 1980s design movement Memphis, which used bold geometric shapes, bright colors, and a healthy sense of humor to refute "good taste" design. The SS11 collection was designed in LA and the clothes reflect the Memphis aesthetic with color blocking and geometric construction, mixed with a southern California ease and less rigid way of dressing.
Vena Cava Spring 2011 has a flowy, lightweight and carefree feel, with longer length skirts and dresses falling below the knee. Some dresses were cut above the knee at the front with a longer silhouette at the back. Poppy red, chartreuse yellow, and greige blue brightened up the soft palette of cream, nude, navy and black.
The black classic pant paired with the chartreuse quilt print t-shirt and mushroom suede kimono jacket with black leather rope is one of my favorite looks.
This black four-ply silk front jacket is another one of my favorites. It can be paired with anything - shirts, skirt, pant or dress.
