Diaz's Spring 2010 Clothesline Collection Makes Recycling Extra Chic

We're constantly sifting through trends from New York, London, Paris, and the like, and yes, it's easy to forget that the hills of Hollywood have a plethora of emerging designers wanting to dress us up sans Uggs or Ed Hardy. Diaz is one of these designers, and her spring 2010 Clothesline collection is full of roomy dresses, jumpsuits, and separates that we can imagine living in come next summer. After a year-long hiatus, Diaz, who presented her first collection in 2006, was inspired by re-use and repetition. She drew the one-of-a-kind house print after visiting a gated community of identical homes, and designed her pieces after reconstructing over-sized thrift store dresses. The button adorned collection is far from the glitzy glamour that Hollywood can be known for, but film inspiration peeks through in the adorable Charlie Chaplin T-shirt. We're experts at separating paper from plastic, but these pieces prove wearing the same thing all season long can be the best recycling there is.
