Designer: Mary Jo Matsumoto

Mary Jo Matsumoto, Fall 2011 collection.

Just in time for LA fashion week: a close look at Mary Jo Matsumo's new collection for Fall 2011! It is absolutely inevitable that with each new collection that is launched from MJM, I will want nearly every single piece. Offering superior quality and the utmost in elegance, I can quite imagine a lady of twenty, and a lady of sixty wearing so many of these, particularly that pale, pale pink coat. Luxurious and fabulous. She understands the key balance of flattering a woman's figure with providing cuts in fabrics of which they truly need and love. If you have not yet seen, beyond clothing, she also has beautiful jewelry and classic handbag collections, as well as lovely, natural perfumes. And then of course, there is that decadent black evening gown that cannot seem to leave my mind since I first laid eyes on it—truly, all that is required to finish is a glamorous little clutch and a handsome gentleman to the left...
