Beads and lace are preferred materials for Collette Dinnigan, and Resort 2010 was no exception. Ornately embroidered tank dresses—said to be a favorite of a certain Top 40 country pop starlet—mingled next to delicate lace gowns (including some of the designer's wood nymph-like bridal looks) and airy cotton eyelet day looks. Dinnigan incorporated bright geometric prints inspired by the translucent waters and stark white buildings of Santorini, but intricate details—like an opalescent rhinestone trim on a billowy chiffon frock—kept the bold patterns from becoming overbearing. There was nothing agenda-setting here, but plenty of pretty pieces for the girl-about-town.
