PARIS, Mar 8, 2011 / FW/ — Entitled “Portrait of a Woman,” the Collette Dinnigan Fall 2011 / Winter 2012 collection is a testament to the Australian designer’s strength – vibrantly feminine silhouettes that swings from sexy to innocent.

Bold colors and structured shapes encapsulate the mystique of a woman as Collette Dinnigan proposes re-imagined true Argentinean equestrian clothing with the leaden lace jodhpurs and metallic jacquard bustle back skirts.

Belle blossom, Italian lace brocade, noir French lace, Venetian wool suiting, Rococo embroidered organza and forest fur – an interfusion of texture and tradition, light and shade.
