A look from Charlotte Ronson's collection and her muse, Angela Chase.
Charlotte Ronson's line may not be conceptual, but she sure can play with a concept. During NYFW, the designer sent forth a deliciously, undeniably 90's-inspired Spring 2011 collection. The clothes seemed as if they had been stolen straight out of the closet of Ronson's "unofficial muse," perfectly nineties television character Angela Chase of My So Called Life.
The collection was full of the decade's hallmarks: scrunchy socks, faded denim, flannels (tied around the waist, to be sure) and military jackets and hoodies. Decidedly feminine details softened grunge-rock vibes; sheer layers and floral prints tempered combat boots and nose rings. My favorite looks were equal parts tough and girly:

Ronson certainly isn't pushing any envelopes this season, and her audience knows it. Innovation notwithstanding, her collection's nostalgic sensibility and aesthetic accessibility will be sure to find many eager buyers.
