Christopher Strong

The best way to describe this collection is to simply say: cleverly designed and detail orientated.
This collection brings back all that is feminine (forget about ruffles and Elizabethian design details, this is about femininity in 2010):
I loved how they tackled the innerwear as outerwear trend: in short, instead of a bra or something lacy playing peek-a-boo, sheer (organza-like material) is thrown over innerwear - but due to it being see-through, the innerwear is worn as outerwear... quirky, but fun!

Middle pic (top) - don't you just love the white overthrow-shirt-thing? and it's also a trans-seasonal piece (a huge plus!) which is soooo versatile.
Last pic (top) - the detail on this high waist skirt and the pleats makes this skirt a winner - Pencil skirts are my favourite corporate woman's weapon!
