Calla A/W 2010

I have fallen in love,
and wholly
with Calla Haynes namesake A/W 2010 collection.

Divine. Ethereal.
With sun streaming in through my window,
sorting through these images I want nothing
but hazy grey days, cobbled streets and ANY  piece of this collection.

It is clear that Calla is an incredible talent. The slouchy ease and the precision tailoring of her pieces are what makes every single item of clothing so damn desirable.  The collection is well defined now with the addition of pencil thin day trousers, quilted jackets, sheer paneled blouses and body conscious dresses covered in her unique digital prints. There is no question that Calla’s talents lie in print, stints with both Olivier Theyskens and Jeremy Laing easily prove this. So the amalgamation here between the delicate patterns and opulent textures are  near perfect.
Dirty breton stripes and pearly jacquard play nice among the racks. What more can a girl ask for??  My absolute favorite piece is of course the signature dress of the collection, with it’s sweetheart neckline and the floor length sheer printed skirt.  So beautifully understated and easy I can’t help but want to feel like a melancholy Parisian princess in it.

Be sure to double click on the images for more detailed look at all the pieces.
