NYFW S/S 2011 :: Leifsdottir

A few looks from the Leifsdottir presentation at the Lincoln Center.

The unexpected thunderstorm didn't seem to hinder the Leifsdottir presentation in The Box at Lincoln Center from filling up on Monday night. The room was decorated with glass museum boxes containing fabric snakeskin foliage and the thunderous tropical sounds that resounded throughout set the overall theme. The designer Johanna Uurasjarvi explained that she was inspired by the natural beauty of the Amazon, which she had recently visited, and also the dangers that accompany that beauty.

This mix was a winning one and the result was a cool combination of modern reptilian prints and airy sheers. Her leather pieces, ranging from bermuda shorts to a scallop layered jacket, also greatly impressed the crowd due to their impeccable fit and wearability. One reoccurring comment heard amongst the spectators was how easy it would be to add the pieces to their current closets. The featured futuristic footwear fit perfectly with the collection and were part of the shoe line the brand is about to launch. Leifsdottir truly appealed to the chic city dweller looking for bold yet smart pieces for spring.
