Lela Rose Spring 2011 RTW - MBFW
Lela Rose took Mercedes Benz Fashion Week by storm with her ethnic-meets-preppy Spring 2011 collection. Lela, who hails from Dallas, Texas, mixed the southern simplicity of ready-to-wear pieces with luxurious details of Peruvian culture into runway-ready couture. From the extravagant cream-to-plum ombre organza gown, to the bold orange one shoulder frock with an ethnic-patterned belt, Rose blended two contrasting themes to perfection.
The models sported tousled side-braids with bright orangey pouts. Shades of tangerine, cream, grey, bright lime and blue gem tones were incorporated in the various pieces. Her twist? Adding metallic and ombre niceties to any and every piece that she wants, of course! And what girl can say “no” to a little sparkle?
The best thing about Lela Rose’s collection is that many of her pieces are not only extremely wearable, but they can also be worn day-to-night. Rose mixes geometry and structure with pieces of With this spring collection, all of the bases are covered, and beautifully at that!
The rich colors and fabric textures from her collection are strong enough to inspire any jet-setting fashionista to vacate south for an opulent spring getaway. South America, that is.
You can’t dash out of the country for a Peruvian getaway anytime soon? Instead, indulge in one of Lela Rose’s lovely ready-to-wear pieces. It is sure to leave you feeling extravagant, cultured and “dressed to the nines” – all without stepping foot near an airport.
