For an array of designs packed with silks, sequins, and suedes, the Cynthia Steffe Spring 2010 collection was surprisingly boyish. The creative director, Shaun Kearney, hit his stride with a Spring collection that brilliantly unites Steffe girl’s propensity for sweetly feminine looks and modern mix-up sensibility favored by cool chicks like Alexa Chung.
Cynthia Steffe brand, known for its great wear-to-work basics, are mostly designed with an eye toward minimalism, including color and prints when necessary. And they have maintained their trend in this show as well.
“It’s no longer about the head-to-toe look. Today’s woman wants to take a little from here, a little from there, and make it her own,” reasoned Shaun.
Ruffles played a key role for collection, while flirty frocks with cascading lapels felt just right. There was plenty to grab like a washed cotton-linen boyfriend blazer, an airy suede utility vest, and a sexy mini bedecked in swishy pearl beads. The playful drop-waist and pastel minidresses were attractive and jackets were fantastic – especially at their price point.
