This is the second article of the series I’ve just started to inspire and inform you before making the delicate decisions involving your spring-summer 2008 wardrobe.
Laura Poretzky, the designer for Abaeté brought geometry to the catwalk. Black and white melt together in a vintage-like show with clean cuts and high waisted items.
From the 32 models I only came up with these 3 because of the over-classical line of the collection that makes almost every piece presented so eye-friendly that leans towards ‘common’.
However, the white high waisted wide leg pants with the black&white top looked so undying, I picked it up (and that big flower deco ads something special to the outfit). Same idea, different pieces (kinda) is the case for the white skirt and black top. Classic. Never a mistake.
The white high waisted belted short with the striped blouse looked charmingly casual and slightly apart from those other pieces of the collection. Still classical but edgy. Pair it with red platforms and it will smash a party, choose to ware it with gladiator flats and it softly lightens up a busy day.
Adam Lippes, head of the ADAM (former Adam + Eve) house proposed a light, sporty line in white, beige and very few colors. Not to daring but not so classical either, the collection gave me 5 reasons to place it in my spring summer wishlist.
My beloved combo of wide-leg pants and shirt, a white over the knee short with yellow shirt and grey jacket – refreshingly classic, the sequined top with the bow skirt and white jacket seemed perfect for an easy chic casual outfit and the multicolored striped dress just lovely.
