Today Vauxhall Fashion Scout saw Robustella showcasing her new s/s 2011 collection, ‘Beautiful Beach’. As the stylish audience crowded into the venue, the bright white catwalk was lit up by a slide show of waves, palm trees and seagulls as a sound-track of crashing waves was heard. An early 90’s pop track began as the first models took to the runway. Krizia’s label presents an eclectic mix of sports deluxe with casual fashion wear, focusing for this collection, on a fun and youthful beach theme.
The opening look was Baywatch inspired, with the girls parading down the catwalk in yellow swimsuits and bright red heels. This colour palette continued with strong block coloured items in yellow, cerulean blue and red with orange accessories. The male models were dressed in logo-heavy t-shirts and matching trousers or towelling fabric tracksuit tops with sewn on badges. Also seen was Hawaiian style skirts and flower neckpieces. The models held a laid back stance throughout to complement the cool, commercial and youthful designs. 

The sporty swimwear based collection was kept modern by white fringing, seen on leggings and mini dresses, transparent backs and ruched bangles and statement necklaces. Overall a refreshing show, and as autumn draws ever closer Krizia's summery show has us excited for next summer already!
