ROKSANDA ILINCIC:   At first blink, Roksanda Ilincic’s collection might simply seem a throwback to the moviestar glam era of the 1940’s.  However, it became immediately obvious to me how refreshingly modern and wearably chic her pieces were.  This was due primarily to her spin of vibrant colors begging to quench the senses, mixed with a high-waisted silhouette, the two statement-making threads woven throughout. This collection had a heap of personality and character, without taking itself too seriously.  In a word, it was ‘happy’.

Furthermore, not only did the items coordinate well together as complete looks, but individually stood strong on their own as well.  I especially loved her take on the raglan sleeve ‘baseball-style’ cropped top–the sleeve structure and stiffer fabrication of which gave it a unique sculptural feel.  And…LOVED the wide-leg culottes! Although, unless the client has a model’s figure, I can see how these might be a difficult sell. Below are more of my favorite looks.  These photos and the rest of the collection can be viewed @ Style.com.
