The Clothes: Ultra-feminine and pretty–a hallmark of Jill Stuart’s aesthetic. As opposed to previous spring collections, this one was decidedly muted in color: Save for a handful of pastel frocks, looks were monochromatic in either black, white, nude, or champagne. But what the collection lacked in color, it made up for in texture: Filmy sheers, appliquéd lace, silk, sequins and jacquard all featured in the collection. All the looks were ladylike–some had a 1920s edge (a silk, boudoir-inspired jumpsuit for instance) and others seemed inspired by ballet (a pleated pink skirt, with a bare top).
The Hair & Makeup: Hair was long and silky, with the front two strands pinned behind the ear. Makeup was minmal–just a sweep of rosy/bronze eyeshadow.
The Soundtrack: Brendan Fallis spun a mix of Lykke Li, Ladyhawke, Mother Protect, and others.
