Jim Hjelm designer Francesca Pitera tells us that her newest collection will be soft, dreamy and ethereal. "I was inspired by French Impressionist paintings (such as the works of Monet and Degas) when designing for the Spring 2010 season. Lace, embroidery, and appliques carry out a floral motif throughout the collection," she says. "I also used quite a bit of tulle and organza to give the line a light and airy feel."

Twitter Terms (we asked each designer to describe their collection in 140 words or less): @Jim_Hjelm Spring '10 collection mixes soft, romantic mood of French Impressionism with modern & flattering silhouettes. www.jlmcouture.com
