S/S 2010 FW Trend: Frills

On designer’s minds for S/S 2010 is the question, “why settle for 2D surfaces when you can have 3D?” Designers channeled the late Victorian era, when more cloth parallels higher stature, enlivening an otherwise mundane canvas of blazers, dresses and blouses, with frills, and intensified the late 1800s with a glint of inspiration from nature — considering each collection appear to bloom oversized petals from every edge and open space. It’s a modern twist on the archaic, that I will be adoring, for the streets come Spring.
