MC by Monique Collignon Catwalk Fashion Show SS2011
Though Monique Collignon is not really the kind of designer you’d expect at the Amsterdam Fashion Week. She was there to show her new collection of the line MC by Monique Collignon.
There was a whole different fashion crowd then we’re used to at AIFW-shows. Mostly people with money and hardly any journalists attended the show. They had a great time.
The new line was classy with a fun twist. A black jumpsuit, a turquoise top and a white pair of pants all had silver embellishments. And there were dresses with ruffles, lace and golden belts.
Shades of black, beige and white alternated each other in the show and towards the end Collignon also added a few animal prints one some airy summer tops and dresses. A black leather lady’s suit appeared almost Gothic, while a gray/silver one with a white belt worn over it, looked stunning.
Not everything breathed as much fashion as it was supposed to. Yet there were some good pieces. It was also nice that, for a change, the models walked the runway in a confident smooth way, instead of stumbling towards the end.
And most important: the clothes will definitely appeal to the Collignon woman. There’s no doubt she won’t be able to find a good work-/party outfit in this collection.
