Georges Chakra once again designed a stunning collection that was constructed with so much detail. He used sets of satin straps parallel or crisscross to sculpture the female body and to create futuristic cut-outs. Some of my favorite looks were the skirt with satin strap and looped strap collar jacket, the sequin cocktail dress under chiffon overlay and the stretch cocktail dresses with strap details. The designer also introduced his line of liquid lame draped jersey dresses in both steel and bronze colors for an über-sexy statement.
His color palette contained a mix of bold and neutral colors like taupe, torquoise, saffron, purple, gold and ivory. Visually stunning were especially his satin strap basket weave bodice which was paired with a long flowing skirts with color gradients.
To sum it up in three words: Chakra’s Spring / Summer Collection 2011 is modern, elegant and glamorous.
