American Perez Spring 2011

MADRID, Oct 23, 2010 / — Entitled “Flower, Shell and Girls,” the American Perez Spring 2011 was inspired by a necklace of sea shells that look like flowers.

An antique necklace that appears to have come from another world. A jewel that seems fragile like a flower but is hard like a clam.

Girls are like that; as delicate as flowers and as hard as clams. They travel to far-off lands without having to leave their rooms. Only something that seems like something else is enough for them.
