The presentation was simple but effective. The selection of models was impeccable. The Boudoir d’Huitres show had very tall models who walked confidently despite the huge heels they must wear. The presentation was not very long, but the atmosphere was subdued and tribal music was nevertheless able to carry us into the world of Boudoir d’Huitres for the duration of the presentation. For her spring / summer 2011 collection, designer Mimi Plange, was inspired by her native South Africa. Her inspirations for color, was found when she went to look at the enchanting sunsets offered ny her native country. Mimi Plange has therefore concentrated her collection around the colors brown, beige, dark blue, green, yellow and white. Nothing too extravagant, just grateful to her origins and her culture. As for the pieces she constructed, unlike what most of the designers offered since the beginning of fashion week, more structured items. We were able to find bustiers consisting of silk and jackets cut in a more conventional way but with contrasting fabric collar and cuffs. The dresses had classic cuts but each had small detail that made it unique. Finally, the prints were large, but fits easily with the rest of the collection.
In short, she was a designer who was nice to discover and we will continue to follow for a long time.
