Whispers of all things feminine encircle Spring Summer 2010, with elegance, vintage and drape being the central qualities.

We also see the much anticipated emergence of recycled yarns, groundbreaking in the form of silk, cotton and viscose. These trends are reflected in the following three stories: Serenity, Halcyon Days and Jamboree.
