Feb 4: Twinkle by Wenlan

Feb 4: Twinkle was the other James Coviello of the season. Staying away from the dark tones and metallics which other designers favored, Taiwan native Wenlan Chia presented a collection that was filled with romantic knits and bohemian prints. Models were dressed in whimsical print dresses and knit cardigans. Chia stayed away from strong separates and instead coveted the layering looks that highlighted her signature knits. The Twinkle girl is a Bohemian at heart with a carefree spirit. Her collection injected a much needed dose of romanticism in an otherwise monotoned season.

PS: Did I mention that she has also released a new book, Twinkle's Big City Knits, which featured some of her favorite knit designs and patterns, this season? Check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/Twinkles-Big-City-Knits-Chunky-Chic/dp/0307346110/

i love the belted sweater jacket. just modern enough that it doesn't feel all 1998.

The belted sweater cardigan goes great when worn layered with summery pieces. I find that to be a great transitional piece -- and I'm glad some designers agree!
