Summary: For Spring 2011, Vivienne Tam took us on a trip down the Silk Road where the devastating floods spanned from China across India to Persia. The look was somewhat casual Boho which was a huge deviation from season's past where her looks were much more tailored. Picture unstructured patchwork jackets, loose eyelet and lace dresses and casual shorts. The look was very relaxed and very wearable.
