Summary: The off site shows are usually where you find something fresh, and the Olga Kapustina Collection was like a breath of springtime. Her pieces were fun, flirty, and looked like they belong in L.A. The designer has some celebrity fans including Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, and Rachel Bilson. The pieces were well made and had a great fit. While some of the printed fabrics were a bit Escada-esque for my taste, the soft muted natural colored knit dresses with shots of bright peacock blue, red orange and yellow dazzled. This is an easy going, modern and wearable collection, which is sure to please the mainstream.
