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.
