Cape Town Fashion Week ’10: Stefania Morland

No one consistently makes an entire collection of neutrals feel as right as Stefania Morland. Muted grays, nudes and sand colors are her signature along with black. This collection started with crèmes, ecru’s and white linens and sheer natural fibers in easy separates and utilitarian sport dresses, all paired with brown and earth toned necklaces and belts along with burnt orange suede heels with a black fabric laced through to make bold and playful bows around the ankles.

Ethereal rustic looks in very easy and accessible shapes like tunics, oversized shorts, long rise trousers, and tent dresses. Raw cut ruffles and tonal organic lace shapes over natural tones continue with patch pockets and deconstructed linen details.

The sophisticated basic shirt and pant shapes transition into more raw fibers in mustard and olive toned silk wrap dresses and skirts, grounded with black leather belts, exposed black bras peeking under halters and sheer tops, and silver sequined bordered hems.

The looks become sweeter and more girly as the palette shifts to blush and nude coloured silks with hints of silver shine and raw edged applied floral rosette details on bodices, hems and throughout cropped blouses.

Raw ruffled handwork details are placed on tonal floor length skirts and dresses as well as short wrapped pieces, which finish the collection in charcoal and black hues and the signature silver sequins and placed piats on dramatic hooded looks with layered sophistication.
