Toni Francesc Fall 11

The Toni Francesc show was a structured affair with these beautifully cut and tailored pieces. I could see myself wearing many of these ensembles to the office, and then right out to meet friends in less formal settings. The rich tones mixed beautifully with the gold accent pieces provided by Nashelle jewelry. 

Francesc said his inspiration for the Garuda collection was the phoenix, a mythical bird which burns in its own flames, only to rise from the ashes. I never thought I would buy into a mythical interpretation of fashion inspiration, but I'm definitely getting the phoenix vibe with these earthy reds and grey ash colors. I also like the nod to fire with the red lips.
