Pamela Roland's Spring/Summer 2011 Collection was fittingly shown at the Whitney Museum. I say fittingly, because the collection was near perfection, especially as you could see it up close and appreciate all of the fine details. I had to remind myself that I wasn't at a costume exhibit at the Met.
Inspired by a recent trip to Greece, Ms. Roland's collection captured the colors and mood of the Greek Isles: the whites of the houses, the blues of the sky and sea, the golds of the architecture and artwork, the neutrals or the land.
The silhouettes are beautifully varied and the attention to detail, whether in the beadwork or the intricate drape, is meticulous.
It is easy to see why Ms. Roland's work is a favorite for the red carpet. This collection harkened back to the works of master couturiers such as Jacques Fath. Elegant, sophisticated and just plain beautiful, this fashionista was left wanting more!
