Sneak Peek: Manuel De la Cruz Spring/Summer 2011
On September 11, 2010 – Guatemalan designer, Manuel De la Cruz, will present his Spring/Summer 2011 collection at Metropolitan Pavilion. The collection, which we have advance images of (see above), was inspired by “Semana Santa” or Holy Week and will draw from the local traditions of Guatemala.
According to the release this collection will incorporate, “black, purple, light blue, and baby pink to create a chic and sophisticated allusion to the colorful nature of the tradition. The women’s collection will be accented by hand embroidered belts and will include sheer cocktail dresses in soft silky blended fabrics such as chiffon, silk cotton, double face duchess satin, silk Georgette and French lace. The men’s collection will consist of tailored pieces with a modern allusion to classic shapes. The materials will include wool blends for the suits, and contrasting silk duchess satin for the jackets as well as trousers.”
