Isabella Tonchi S/S '11

I wandered into the Isabella Tonchi presentation at some point during fashion week and had no idea she was the sister of Stefano Tonchi (that's the editor of W)! Taste must run in the family, because the collection was sophisticated, clean and had a quiet power that lets you know this will be a force in the fashion world.

Inspired by the Viennese school of Expressionism, there were graphic black and white prints, a great geometric jacquard pattern and muted pastel colors. I was really interested in the clothing, but man the models kept wandering around and around their little area instead of sending out new looks - drove me bonkers after a bit!
