Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2011: Niche Glamour

LONDON--Roksanda Ilincic's Fall 2011 collection was interesting. Part of it--the dark lips, the silver satin--reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow circa 1996. Another part--the loose waves, the column dresses in odd colors like tangerine and royal blue--reminded me of 1940s Hollywood. Despite its glossy facade, I was a bit befuddled by it all. And not necessarily in a bad way. Ilincic is quite obviously designing for herself, not around what people expect from her. Is that the makings of a great designer? I think...maybe.
