An Early Spring

Designer have already been busy sketching out their looks for Spring 2011. It's interesting to see the continuting trends, how what's hot right now is influencing looks a year away, and what those elements that were everywhere just a month ago look dated in these designs.

Per WWD -

A new level of sophistication rules for spring ’11, as designers add femininity to chunkier silhouettes using painterly prints and exotic details. Architectural constructions also continue to build a following, while contrasting textures liven up the season’s best styles. FN previews 21 key spring looks. Check out the slide show:

Drawing Attention: Spring '11 Sketches -

My favorites are the Nicole Brundage sandals (above), the Via Spiga sandals (slide 5), the Jerome C. Roussau slingbacks (an up-and-coming new designer - slide 7), the Rene Caovilla sandals (will those have crystals on the soles? - slide 12), the DKNY floral applique and lace-up heeled sandals (slide 18), and the Guillaume Hinfray heels with the great hardware (slide 19).

I have a lot of favorites, apparently. And it seems I should start saving up.

What styles and trends are you looking forward to?
