WHAT WE THOUGHT: The sisters Mulleavy truly think like artists. In seasons past, they have created esoteric offerings that bordered on unwearable. For spring/summer 2011, they kept their creative impulses in check to produce a smash collection of cool indie-spirited separates. While the Doors' The End blared in the background, models sashayed past in silk dresses with subtle wood-panel prints reminiscent of your father's rec room walls back in the day.
Muted upholstery-like shades of moss green and rust brown also combined in guipure-lace pants and tops, and draped skirts. Chinese Ming-print silk dresses were minor diversions but refreshing nonetheless. The closing gold lamé gown with hammered-sequinned full skirt was so retro it looked ancient Roman, yet gave the collection some welcome sparkle.
