Preen S/S 2010

After a few seasons of the hard edged and wild dresses, Thea Bregazzi and Justin Thornton’s Preen girl for spring 2010 is tangibly walking back to the softer and mellower lines. Not entirely giving up the deconstruction that got themselves celebrity worshipped by, the couple not only gave the girl the usual cut-outs and the vulnerable shoulder straps, patchworks of lace and puffiness (that was last seen from Giambattista Valli) was also pieced into the romantic collection.

Couldn’t get any more evident of a supplely season, out came a yellow and a couple pink sheer draped dresses, as well as a series of grey and white loose translucent blouses. Also in the placid colour palette are beige and nudes that gave the girls that extra body-conscious appeal.

But shaking off the trendy zippers and houndstooth prints, what might seen as a déjà vu this time round are the shoulder pads that pops out once in a while through the show. And just when it seem that nothing could be more abrupt, out came the PVC-glossy pieces which might let their customers re-inquire when they look at their price tags attached.

Looking back, the shiny pvc dress patricia was wearing didn't really match with the whole collection, much less the price tag.

BTW, which was your favourite collection? I've not finished looking through[exams], but I got to say, I love Celine. So chic, and wearable. They're sure to make money off that collection.

asyraf, i know right... I kinda liked preen this season, mainly for the valli-ish puffiness.

This season's OKOK. I thought London would still be my favourite, but no. This season it's paris. V&R and mcqueen is my top 2 right now... I liked gianfranco and the new rochas too.

Celine was great. Philo knows how to dress a women's body with the most minimal pieces. Love her.
