Kellylicious by Ludmila Corlateanu

 

The spring 2009 collection, made of 19 dresses for day and evening/cocktail, follows the brand design philosophy: a "quiet" mix of classical shapes and modern chic flair with subtle influences from different cultures.

The main inspiration comes from the late 50s-early 60s silhouettes, with Grace Kelly as fashion muse. In fact, the story of the collection imagines a young, bachelorette Grace Kelly having fun on a French Riviera holiday.

Hence the "boarding-school" style, which, along the lively contrasts (contrasting yokes, panels and bows) and the use of high-tech fabrics resulted in a "modern-vintage" look. The color palette is simple but delicious: basic white and black, dusty pink and red floral prints.

Ludmila Corlateanu designs can be found in Venice (Italy) and Bucharest (Romania) selected boutiques but you can contact the designer through her blog, milasfashion.livejournal.com, for any kind of info regarding her collections.
