Ports 1961- Spring 2011 Fashion Show Punches Up Color With Soft Neutrals
Runway Review: The highlight display of artfully draped garments was the palette of smooth, warm neutrals with shocking flashes of color
The color palette was brimming with Spring Fever, and soft fabrics were in full flow at the Ports 1961 Spring 2011 show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
The highlight display was the palette of smooth, warm neutrals – charcoal, deep moss green, sandy beige and smokey grey, with shocking flashes of color – deep sea blue, bright purple and grass green.
Also a play of soft metallic in fabrication, sequin embellishments or jewelry. Everything had a warm shine to it, like the sun!

Ports 1961 characteristically is very fluid and airy, dressing for a gorgeous night out. This stayed consistent yet again with soft silks draped on the body, a lot of this detail seen on the backs of garments, accentuated when in motion. Smooth and elegant.
