The Rolando Santana Fall 2011 collection has made quite an impression on me. I had missed the show during Fashion Week, but I did get a chance to visit the showroom last month. Rolando Santana's Fall collection has an urban sophistication feel, with a focus on feminine cocktail dresses that just look effortless.
I am in awe over the use of leather (incredibly soft), fur, chiffon and feathers as well as ruffle detailing and draping on wool jersey. I also think that the open back on the sequin pieces are sexy and elegant. Some of my favorite pieces include black cocktail dresses, but to me there is nothing more wearable than a black cocktail dress. There are also a few pieces that you can dress up or down, including the feather jacket and fur vest.
I also had to point out these gorgeous statement pieces that were in the showroom. What a work of art!
