The Jean-Charles Castelbajac 2011 Fall/Winter collection features some of the most intriguing trends in women's apparel for the season. Several of Castelbajac's themes will surely influence other designers this season. Such unique designs, like the scribbled text print which takes the desirable color palate of creme, charcoal gray and lipstick red, are sure to keep fashionistas far from looking bland this season.

One of the stand-out pieces in the Jean-Claude Castelbajac series that features the clever cursive writing is the fifth photo in the attached gallery, which illustrates the short, caftan dresses that are hot this season. The silk garment stood out for its versatility--it could be worn as a dress or with leggings, and of course, belted with denim.
