Charlotte Ronson Ready-To-Wear Spring 2011

Charlotte Ronson’s collection this season was totally up my alley. With a relaxed,  grunge-era feel, the line also managed to pull off dainty and high fashion all at once. Filled with hoodies, loose-fitting threads, and trendy beanie hats, it was like being in a much more stylish 1994. While there were some urban themes throughout the collection, each piece held up femininity and undeniable intricate beauty.

Ronson certainly knows how to put an outfit together. It was obvious that each detail was incredibly thought out, everything from the scrunchy socks peeping out of the boots to the flirty flair in the dresses. Someone call the Brooklyn hipsters- they won’t want to miss out on these looks. As the models strutted down the runway in Charlotte Ronson’s collection, all I could think of is how she brought a new definition to the phrase ‘hot mess’. The attire isn’t always clean-cut, but it’s certainly flattering, chic, and swanky. The line smells like teen spirit, although is appropriate for ages beyond the younger audience Ronson frequently targets. This is definitely a collection I wouldn’t mind maxing out a department store credit card for.

As I took my seat, I couldn’t help but notice that I was only feet away from the DJ booth, with who else spinning but Charlotte’s twin sister, Samantha Ronson. The playlist was fun and in accordance with the style on the runway. Intermittently you could spot Samantha texting on her phone, and I couldn’t help but wonder… could Lindsay be on the other end?
