Alfred Angelo 2011 collection is cool elegance

Many designers go to Paris, Italy or draw their inspiration from South America.  If you’re Michael Shettel and the team of Alfred Angelo, you travel to an Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Harbin, Heilongjiang China.  It was in this frigid northeastern province where translucent ice sculptures, fairytale palaces, and carved snow flora were on display, helped create the cool elegance and flare of the 2011 collection.

This season Alfred Angelo and their Sapphire collection take the icy sheen, frosty sparkle and soft billowing feel from this adventure.  As Michael says “as winter turns to spring, my idea for this season was to see fabrics that move with ease, yet mixing it up with dynamic and architectural pleating and feminine details.  The added sparkle is just like the palace lights so the gowns are fitting for the queen bride that you are.”

Colors like seashell, Latte and Ivory graced the runway and like snow melting they simply floated past and created pure warmth.  There is an air of elegance, and warmth in this collection no matter how cold the air in which the idea was born.
