Collette Dinnigan. I liked it overall, although a few of the pieces were a little severe or awkwardly cut (I thought).

AJ Strutman. I like the cut of the neck and the silhouette of this look, but not really the tier effect on the skirt.

Emilia Nawarecka. This look I primarily like because of the silhouette, very late 1800s or Victorian (with a slimmer skirt, of course!).

Kelli Lumi. Interesting.

AJ Strutman. I like the fur, but I”m not a huge fan of the silvery stripes over grey. Basic grey, I think, would’ve complemented a rich texture (fur) very well.

I’d have liked to see a little more color, even if only a little nude or pale pink here or there, interspersed with the black lace… it was a lot of black. There were a few pieces of blue and with oversized polka dots, but none of those really caught my eye, so I didn’t include them in my little round-up. Weird coincidence that the looks I liked were worn by a couple of the same models.  😛

I can be sort of a 60’s whore – music, movies, clothes, celebs – so when I read that Karen Walker was a 60s seaside retreat, I smiled very, very widely and quickly navigated over to NYmag.com. Mmm. I saw bucket hats and very 60s-esque prints, minidresses and a few suits without even enlarging the first thumbnail. Bright colours, eccentric hats… Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Rachel Clark. Funny thing is, one of my running friends is tall, blonde, and ridiculously skinny and her name is Rachel Clark. More classic stripes.

Skye Stracke. Mixing nautical and preppy looks – and of course that crazy straw bucket hat. Tower hat, more like.

The sunnies! The hat! The hoodie! The dots!

Toma Barkova. I actually sighed in happiness when I saw this. A super-frouffy (yes, frouffy) minidress in psychedelic print. I… must…. have…

Angelika Kocheva. Bright blue and yellow, an eccentric English 60’s vibe…

Final thoughts: whimsical, fun, 60’s-inspired, wearable, very Springlike… all make for a hit!
