Summary: Only here can the word "luxury" be used as an understatement when describing Jenny Packham's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Nothing about her line consists of anything short of gorgeous. Packham herself can describe the line as "translucent beauties" and "exquisite youth". 


Satin with a slight shimmer and sheen added to the fabric helps bring out the decadence of each piece. The de Gournay hand-painted silk fabrics also bring the depth to each painted flower, making each color come to life. Some pieces also contain heavily beaded crystals that make the line look younger but still maintaining to balance its sophistication.


Color Palette: nude, white, gold, navy, ivory, light blue, gray, rose, slate gray, bronze, peach, sky blue, soapstone, light aqua


Fabrics & Textures:  silk, tulle, chiffon, silk georgette, satin, silk twill, jersey, organza, lace, crepe de chine
