I checked out the Rena Lange Spring collection that just came out today.  The German design label has very classic lines, nothing edgy.  In other words, good for the office and can be sophisticated particularly for ladies who are not in their 20s to 40s anymore.  For the younger set, it can be a bit boring.

I saw the African Safari influence that seems popular this springtime.   The khaki and tribal outfits were all over the March Vogue issue.

This jacket had slimming detail down the front seams and would look great with cream slacks.

This shirt dress was on snake print fabric.  That made it slightly edgier than the usual khaki version.

This textured suede skirt had elongating vertical lines, particularly the detail down the middle.  It came with a tied safari jacket but I would wear it on its own with a black turtleneck and boots.

Finally, there was the classic boucle jacket (like Chanel or St. John) with hand-sewn abalone shell embellishment.  Those lilac shells looked lovely against the pink satin.

All-in-all, nothing outrageous, but wearable couture.
