We were soo excited when our amazing friend and incredible stylist, Tu Ly asked us to come backstage to preview the Ports 1961 photoshoot for Pre-Fall 2011. It all took place in NY and in their gorgeous loft studio that let in the most amazing sunlight, which went perfectly with their theme. The collection is called L'heure Bleue, which is "the moment just before sunrise and just after dusk... it's a moment when everything seems to slow down to a heartbeat and everything seems full of possibility." The clothes are beautiful and designer Fiona Cibiani did an amazing job! The draping and construction of each piece is so sophisticated and elegant. The color palette is filled with navy, all shades of blues and teals with hints of burnt oranges, warm browns and pale pinks. It's a ballerina ladylike chic. The jewelry is made out of ostrich feathers with delicate chains. Ports 1961 is known for their classic couture techniques and Michelle Obama was seen wearing Ports last month! Fiona is the sweetest and we had so much fun with her! All of the models were running around getting photographed and changing into their next looks, for the photoshoot, while there was a launch of the Ports Menswear label in the next room. There was a lot of great food, champagne and lots to celebrate! See us and Fiona in last picture! To see the whole collection click here!
