Basso& Brooke SS 2011 - "Power Prints"
pictures via vogue.co.uk
"Power Prints" is a collection which is all about mixing and matching: "where anarchic, gestural expression meets formal, structured restraint; where bleeding edge techno-futurism meets dusty hand-scribbled antiquity; and where lightness, joy and frivolity are met with simmering, shimmering sex." , it's a "collection of controlled contrasts".(quoutations taken from official press release)
What I adore about this collection are the shapes, the cut-out details and the high-waisted, flowy skirts. The wild, pattern mixed digital prints are defenitely something that needs getting used to, but they are original, individual and interesting for sure. My favourite pieces are the dress on the third and the flower print blouse on the fifth picture.
