Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Toni Francesc Spring 2011 - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week -Photo by Luxury Experience As the days grow longer, and the snow starts melting, our thoughts naturally turn to thoughts of spring and some of the gorgeous Spring Summer 2011 Collections from the design houses of Tibi, Toni Francesc, and Luca Luca that we saw on the runways during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York.

 


Ami Smilovic
, founder and designer of the New York based company Tibi, stated, "Spring is about beauty and classics with a thoroughly modern twist and styles that are simple with ease." Her spring 2011 Collection featured 36 looks featuring clean lines, and feminine good looks.

She blended a neutral color palette of white, cream, camel, tobacco, and black, enlivened with cornhusk, fennel, fire, purple, floral prints, paisleys, and leopard print elegantly working her magic with suede, crochets, linens, silks, and chiffons.

Beginning with her opening look, a Camel Suede Bow Tie Coat paired with a Leather Loafer Wedge, to her grand finale look of a Cloister Beaded Sleeveless Jacket in Cream and Cloister Effortless Long Wide Leg Silk Culotted Jumpsuit in Cream paired with a Strappy Flat, Ami Smilovic demonstrated why she is a fashion powerhouse.

Spanish Designer Toni Francesc, the talent behind the Toni Francesc design house, "transfers a forest-based concept to a city environment with "Urban Forest" - Spring/Summer 2011. Wood becomes the symbol of this collection ... "Urban Forest" is a collection that is just as versatile as wood itself. In this respect, depending on its treatment, wood can present its most natural dimension, as witnessed in tree bark, or its most elaborate side, including carved and moulded wooden forms. The Collection's clothing items present a series of rough and enveloping forms combined with other cleaner volumes and straight, milder lines."

Utilizing a neutral color palette sparked with forest shades of green, blue, and coral, the collection of coats, pants, skirts, and dresses was inspired. Of particular interest was Toni Francesc's adroit use of incorporating wood elements into his designs that included a halter dress with a wood necklace as the focal point, and as well as a gown, along with wood jewelry accessories and interesting wood handbags.
