Summary: Between the desert landscapes and clear blue sky, the Ports 1961 Spring/Summer 2011 collection from Fiona Cibani beautifully showcases the fluid movement of these earthly elements. As well as drawing inspiration from jagged geometric forms, the collection displays a summer feel to man-made silks and linens. The clothing gives off the light look of sand with a slight sheen to give the wearer a slimmer look.
