I want to be friends — no, best friends — with Crispin & Basilio designer Donny Barrios. I want his entire Spring '09 collection! It's effortless, feminine, and incorporates the sheer trend with utter perfection. The color palette is another reason this line has me sprung. It has just enough color (orange, teal) and just enough neutrals to balance it out. Flowy sheer blouses are girlie but they're tempered by voluminous shorts. Cropped jackets provide ease to dressy silk gowns. Long vests balance metallic mini skirts. Next Spring is going to be much happier thanks to this collection. Donny, if you're reading this, call me.
