Mother Maria F2010 Collection
“For Aussie label Mother Maria, baguettes met boomerangs to inspire one of the most charming collections of the season. Defined by chic shapes and feminine details, â€œParisienneâ€ brings springtime on the Champs-Ã‰lysÃ©es to the surf-friendly shores of Australia, sustainable fabrics included.
Designer Katie Ganon first started selling pieces to friends in 2002, before extending her sphere of influence to stores in 2006. Since her lineâ€™s inception, Gannon has dedicated herself to the pursuit of everything green and gorgeous. Her Fall/Winter 2010 collection (or rather, Spring/Summer, for those of us in the northern hemisphere) harkens back to the playful sophistication of the â€™40s while using beach-friendly fabrics and soft colors.”
All of Mother Mariaâ€™s garments are ethically produced Down Under using mostly organic cotton and vintage fabrics, althoughâ€”full disclosureâ€”some new conventional cotton is included, as well. Not living in the land of Vegemite? Its online shop ships worldwideâ€”gâ€™day, indeed!

Top Picks: Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection
It seems Ralph Lauren’s take on the recession involves some neat references to the 1930s Depression, and I’m not complaining.
Paperboy caps, worn denim baggies, ladies in pinstriped three-pieces and plus fours… ring-a-ding-ding!! There were also a few pretty florals, if you care to look.
