Visiting the collection presentations of Avelon is always a pleasure. It's one of my favorite Dutch brands and I would wear nearly every piece they produce. This spring/summer 2012 collection features loosely fitted dresses in silk and leather, open knits, maxi skirts and subtle athletic references. Executed with the signature rose gold zips and eye for detail, they are pieces that stand firmly on their own without being too loud. Understated luxury, as designer Erik Frenken - who was previously head designer for Viktor & Rolf - puts it perfectly.
