With SS 2011 we saw the come back of color-block and ladylike elegance, during the past week New York runways carried it forward to the same exquisite direction.
Collections were unusually colorful for winter (orange, electric blue, red) and rich in prints. Even Oscar de la Renta displayed a collection inspired by Oriental opulence, with gold, fur hats and Mongolian coats.
Legs were hidden behind gorgeous large trousers or long skirts and have never looked so good.
All this beauty has only one side-effect: pushing to compulsive shopping!
