Like a soiree right out of Gossip Girl, the Pamella Roland presentation was staged at the undeniably elegant space of the Whitney Museum on New York's Upper East Side. I quickly realized if there was one designer who I appreciate more via presentation it's Pamella Roland. Her designs are well thought out with unique details that can easily be missed in the usual 30-meter dash down the catwalks of the tents.
Roland's collection was an immediate obsession to all in its presence. There were posses of posh women, all in awe over the collection that was said to have been inspired by the designer's recent trip to Greece.
Her inspiration was evident through her use of nonchalant, lightweight fabrics. They truly translated the romantic breeze of the Greek Isles. (Not that I've been, but I'm planning my honeymoon there and from the brochures those breezes look like they definitely have some romantic possibilities!)
The most impressive part of her Spring 2011 presentation was the range of fashion, while still keeping things cohesive. I just adored her sophisticated jet-set style of the ready-to-wear pieces. Yet, no sooner would I make up my mind that if I could have one piece it would be the uber luxe pleated pants (I swear if you held them up to your ear you could hear the ocean) that I turned around and gasped at what I predicted would be US Weekly's next handful of red carpet obsessions. Seriously I went into fantasy overload with evening wear looks.
Overall, it was another excellent collection from a designer who consistently puts out A-list pieces for the A-list crowd.
P.S. And it was a star-studded evening! Everyone from Hilary Swank and Denise Richards to Lori Loughlin and Perrey Reeves attended.
And the next red carpet dress is right here...
This train is straight-up Grecian goddess, no?
Short and slinky is just as sexy...
More subdued hues for spring. Not a bad thing at all.
