Roksanda Ilincic Mixes Sporty with Sophistication

Victoria Beckham isn’t the only designer continuing to mix sportswear with ladylike evening looks for Autumn/Winter 2012. Roksanda Ilincic skillfully balanced baggy sweatshirts with elegant midi-skirts and paired hooded sports jackets with bright column dresses in her playfully chic Fall collection.

Even the handbags got a sporty makeover, with models clutching a variety of duffle bags, made in jewel-toned silks, bright checks and crushed velvets. Something tells me you wouldn’t want to keep your gym kit and grubby trainers in these babies…

Although there was a definite lack of red carpet gowns in Roksanda’s runway collection I’m still crossing my fingers we see some of the Autumn/Winter cocktail dresses at Hollywood events in the near future. Ginnifer Goodwin needs another Roksanda moment, and I’d also love to see Sarah Jessica Parker, Emily Blunt, Brooklyn Decker and Julianna Margulies give Roksanda Ilincic a whirl. Do you think they’d suit the label?
