>> Their collection did kind of remind me of Lucky Charms -- there were rainbows, stars, hearts, and lots of magically delicious colors. But don't worry, Eley Kishimoto's collection wasn't so overdone that it was tacky. Rather, it was the perfect fusion of the Japanese fashion-inspired and the sixties-inspired, making for a cheerful spring/summer collection to contrast all the drabness that has prevailed thus far.
On the rainbow dress, right, we see the tiers that were all over in NY, but this is definitely the best treatment I've seen of them so far -- probably because the print is fairly busy, so it draws some of the attention away. Very cute, and I love the buttons down the front.
The heart dress (left) is one of my favorites of this collection -- I love the simplicity of the shift dress shape, embellished with a big bright-red heart and a ruffle at the bottom that alludes to a tutu. Very simple, and yet unique.
It looks like big sunglasses are here to stay for another season, if this collection and Luella have any influence. Again, I love this top, with the big smacking red lips against the darker background. Playful? Check. Cute? Check. Graphic qualities? Check. Add 'em all up, and what do you get? My resounding approval.
