Mastering drama and simplicity at once is not an easy feat, but it is one that designer Junko Yoshioka has attempted, and accomplished, in her spring 2011 collection. The dresses are revered for their clean, simple lines and effortless silhouettes.
To up the glam factor, without adding fuss, the designer focused on a single detail to make the gown pop, and it isn't hard to see which accent she was focused on in the Collette dress, pictured above. "It is feminine, unique, simple, and whimsical all at once," says the designer.
Characterized by it's cascading train, which starts at the ribbon-tied, empire waist line, the strapless cut and otherwise streamlined silhouette allows the gown to remain true to the designer's fresh and simple style while still having a major wow factor.
The dress is representative of an entire line created with "soft details" and "lots of billowy layers".
