Haute Couture Fall 2010 Coverage: Basil Soda

by April Hall, Paris Correspondent
Sleek, black gravel covering the runway, French celebrities, and other notable global personalities, some with PA`s fanning them the whole time, set the perfect ambiance for the glamorous runway to red carpet to society gala collection that was Basil Soda`s for fall/winter 2010/2011. Perhaps aimed at the slightly younger crowd, the jewel blues and fuschias as well as whites and neutrals were all accented with gold, usually in the form of zippers. The entire presentation was a magpie's dream, with shimmer and shine and all out glamour in every ensemble. Soda's talent for draping and accentuating the woman's body was used this season to create an awesome feminine rocker chic. Lace, reptile skins, and superfluous zippers gave the beautiful silhouettes a decidedly more aggressive, rocker styling. On the few ensembles lacking these elements however, the result is a beautiful, figure-enhancing gown. The ultimate rocker evening booties worn by the models are a must have as well.
