Delightful Whites with Neon Brights

I know I am about 2 days (far) too late with my Givenchy Couture Spring 2011 show report  - especially as far as the fashion world goes - but I have only really literally had time this evening to have a proper look at all the yummy couture shows. So apologies if you have already seen all these images about 10 times before but for those of you that haven't, you are in for a real treat.
I was only going to post about 3 or 4 but they were all such gems that I have pretty much posted most of them all.
I loooooved the contrast between the femininity aspect to the dresses to the, well, basically 'way out there' effect of the head pieces. The delicate whites & soft/ feminine fabrics against the neon bright detailing was striking & as far as the hats are concerned, they stole the show.

Phosphorescence, is a brand new line of sunnies from creative director Hisham Bharoocha, known for his band Soft Circle, numerous fine art endeavors, and general downtown New York ubiquity.

A fresh new collection of frames include a collaboration of designs with an array of New York City hipsters such as Erin Wasson, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, United Bamboo, Zero + Maria Cornejo, No Age, Opening Ceremony, and Rockers NYC. These sunnies will be what all the New York cool kids will be wearing this summer.

 Via an article in Refinery 29 said of artist Hisham Akira Bharoocha; 'You might recognize Bharoocha from spreads in i-D, exhibitions at Deitch Projects, or gigs with bands like Lighting Bolto, Black Dice, or Soft Circle (yep, he was a founding member in all of 'em), so you're not exactly in shock-and-awe that his creative juices have taken a sartorial inclination.'

Now I have to be honest, before coming across this article on the exciting new line, Hisham had never really came under my radar before but now after seeing this stellar new collection, he is well & truly there to stay. I love this collab range from light blue and pink shdes to bolder black frames to a pewter gray number.

Hisham described Phosphorescence as an arena for creative people to collaborate, and this is an impressive start. I am very interested to see what he comes up with next.

§ Date: 25th January, 2011
§ Where: The Pavillion Cambon, Paris
                          § Theme: Soft girlish ballet was the essence of the show                              

§ Every model walked in a ballet flat. 
§ Artist Marie Laurencin was Karl Lagerfeld's inspiration.
§ Ten million beads were used in all for the shows collection. 
§ At show's end, Karl massed his models on the steps of a simulacrum of the iconic Rue Cambon salon.
§ There were pastel frilled & feathered dresses that looked spun from gossamer ("morning dew on spiderwebs").
§ The collection consisted of precise, balletic grace to the shifts, the tops, the fitted jackets, and floating chiffons, all of them built on sequined leggings.

Shala Monroque - Editor & Gallery Girl - has been tipped to be in 'The Next Generation of Street Style Stars', by elite fashion portal & I think this picture firmly cements her new title.
The chic art maven & her exceptional style have grabbed the admiration of the fashion world, which has deservedly landed Monroque on the It-Girl map.... prepare to see a lot more of her in 2011.
