The sharp tailoring and feminine fabrics played the androgynous card well. The colour palette was light and simple, ranging from powder blue to lemon, cream, grey and black.
High-waisted trousers in charcoal grey, cream and black were teamed with body-con bodices, bra tops and corsets that were reminiscent of 80s Madonna. The women looked strong but very sexy. This was an ultra-feminine style playing along the lines of traditional power dressing.
Dresses switched between full gowns and chic knee-length versions, all concentrating heavily on asymmetric cutting.
Referencing the 80s again, shoulders on silk blouses were structured and angular. This girl means business.
Prints were barely-visible florals that camouflaged themselves with fabric, creating delicate detailing. They looked like a continuation of a bolder print used for SS09.
The last, most notable trend, already being cultivated for the current S/S season was cut-outs. However, rather than the delicate detailing we have been seeing, this was far more pronounced, with whole sides taken out, in a rather daring, figure-hugging move.
Overall, a well cut and beautiful collection and most of all VERY New York in style. Stunning, versatile dresses and well cut tailoring that is bound to beat the credit crunch!
