Summary: Much of Catherine Malandrino's Spring/Summer 2011 line focuses on the creative aspect of ceramist Roger Capron and the free-spiirted village of Vallauris, South of France. Using crackled and woven leathers, Malandrino combines them with touches of washed linens in soft ceramic tones. Sun bronzed skin completes the looks by peeking out from under macrame and cotton gauze. The airy feel of this collection is shown through and through with loose and flowing silhouettes.
