Catherine Malandrino Spring 2011

With the reflecting pool outside Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center as a backdrop, Malandrino’s Spring 2011 collection took us on a trip far away from the overcast skies of New York City to the South of France. Malandrino’s inspiration for the collection came from the artists’ village, Vallauris, in the South of France, and more specifically, ceramist Roger Capron. This spirit of artistry and craftsmanship could be seen in the intricate details of the clothing like a floor-length macramé dress, chunky beaded jewelry, woven leather vests and intricately-designed studded jackets. Despite the emphasis on details, some things were still classic Malandrino: the models’ slightly tousled chignons, as well as pieces like wide-leg linen pants, drop crotch capris and bright dresses, are the kind of effortless chic that we’ve come to expect from Malandrino.
