Callula Lillibelle is a line that aims to embrace all types of the female figure and be able to dress them from desk to dinner! The Fall 2011 Collection was a beautiful example of how this could be achieved, so I was looking forward to what Callula Lillibelle would present for Spring 2012.
Designer William Calvert and his partner Melanie Fraser Hart proved that they could do it again. Inspired by sexy, playful and glamorous Sophia Loren, Callula Lillibelle presented her as a modern woman with modern day needs. The biggest statement that was made in this collection was color!
Neon pink, aqua, ivory, fuchsia lemony yellow and red ruled the day in separates, dressings and suitings that as the designers explained were meant to make you smile! The collection is also full of gorgeous prints, large polka dots, small polka dots, and metallic jacquards. For the color shy, there are enough whites, blacks and greys to mix in with the sea of color!
This last June, William Calvert received the Fashion Innovator Award from the National Arts Council and as this collection proved, that award was well placed!
