Clothes seem to have more of an ease for this season so far. Nothing is too structured or too constricted to the body. It is just a more relaxed kind of vibe with the shows and there is a ton of neutrals.
The Edun show was just that for the Spring 2011 collection. Every article of clothing had such an ease to them. From the denim shirts to the flowy maxi dress and tons of crisp white that is not shown here. Each piece can be mixed and matched and will still give the look of being put together. The attention to detail is great too. The sun-fading on the denim shirt is a nice touch to the usual. The denim dresses are also well constructed. Especially the asymmetrical one sleeve dress. I think the detail of the darting and hip is a nice touch. My overall thought on the collection was that it was great, very easy to wear from day-to-day.
Jessica Simpson announced her intention to add denim to her already popular Jessica Simpson collection. What better time to launch it than during fashion week? She held the “Show me your Blues” event to show off her Spring 2011 collection. The event was complete with her sister, Ashlee, serving as a model and brother-in-law, Pete Wentz, DJing.
The line is super affordable and stylish, with prices starting at $49! You can enter to win a chance to be styled by Jessica, by entering the contest on her website at Jessicasimpsoncollection.com/events. While her Spring 2011 denim collection is not yet available for purchase, you can check out some of the looks below and browse the rest on Instyle.com

Jessica Alba is busy promoting her latest film, Machete. She was seen boarding a gondola in Venice, Italy. She was in town promoting Machete for the 67th annual Venice Film Festival.
Jessica wore a denim jacket, floral top and gray chinos for her ride through the canals. Jessica was wearing CHINO’s by William Rast, the Tommy Tomboy skinny slouchy chino in Seagull. I actually have these chinos and adore them, I’ve barely taken them off since I purchased them. I reviewed them on the forum boards here. You can buy them from Nordstrom for $88.00.
