venus de paula

Another designer from this post, Hermione de Paula - a 2006 CSM graduate -whose GORGEOUSOMGZINEEDTHEMINMYLIFE spindl-y black&blue leggings from that second photo caught my eye. Needed to know more; instantly.

SS10 is all about 'Venus', as in the goddess, and her work is very much based on prints. If you know me, and if you've been reading for a while then dammit you should, I'm not huge on prints (but I will admit, they're growing on me something rotten) but these are non-too-brash; on floaty sheer fabrics and the mixed print styling which I always enjoy is selling them to me.

Love the cut outs and the body-con looks; and how seamlessly they mix with the floatier pieces.
The leggings, incidentally are from A/W09, which is all crushed velvet and loopy knits...

All images are from Hermione's site, and you can buy exclusively from Brown's.

those two printed dresses under the first larger images are really reminiscent of alexander mcqueen to me. besides that, I LOVE the second two looks. Amazing design!
The black lips look really striking here. This is how it's done!
