Review:

Bensoni's spring 2011 collection started off lacking much significance. It looked like simple clothing done with neutral prints. As the collection got about halfway through I noticed a progression. The show started with Neutrals, moved into neutrals with bright colors, and finished with fun and funky bright outfits. The progression seemed natural but I didn't like where the collection started and it was interesting where it ended up. I cannot decide if interesting is a good thing. I cannot decide if I like this collection or hate it. It possibly is a bit of both. I like some of the color palette and I adore the silhouettes but this collection left me a little puzzled. I didn't get a good feeling of what this collection is really about.
