Ready to Fish Catwalk Fashion show SS2011
The Ready to Fish fashion show was playful, fresh and trendy. Ilja Visser took some of this moment’s biggest fashion trends and combined them with the type of clothing she is good at making. Jumpsuits, pleated trousers and strong short jackets.
The fact that Ilja is well aware of today’s trend was visible in every aspect of her collection. Not only the type of clothing, but also the colors, the fit and the materials she chose are hot right now.
Shades of blue, black, off-white, pink, peach and light brown were perfectly combined in several outfits. For instance, Ilja took a pair of brown shorts and matched those with a peach colored top and a black jacket.
Great prints were part of summer collection as well. At the beginning of the show they came by very subtle, on the lining of a pair of pants or around the buttons of a trenchcoat. Yet towards the end some great jackets and dresses were printed all the way. The prints had very natural colors and resembled some kind of stains.
Ilja worked a lot with pleats and paid some extra attention to the collars of some looks. Some dresses got a little extra volume, cause they were not only pleated but also layered.
Many of the outfits were finished off by nice accessories. Necklaces made out of fabric for instance, but also some great clutches.
We couldn’t think of anyone who would not want to relax in those clothes. Each and every outfit, looked so comfortable and had such a nonchalance feeling to it. There was nothing too tight or too short. Ilja once again designed a collection of clothes in which women can feel beautiful, sexy and relaxed at the same time.
