For any fashion-watcher getting a little sick of all the never-ending 70s vibes of the past few seasons, Narciso Rodriguez's collection is a breath of fresh air. (If air, that is, can be clean-lined, abstract and modern. And wearing flat boots.)
These absolutely heel-less wonders mark a big change. I'm guessing come September, the fashionistas are all going to be padding around in these, rather than teetering.
Rodriguez has stated that he was inspired by collage, and it was clear in the garments, which used a variety of textiles in beautiful and unexpected combination.
Although the silhouette was simple and unvaried, the intricacy of the garments provided a striking counterpoint.
The watercolor-inspired prints lent a softly romantic element.
The collage aesthetic continued with austere blocks of Mondrian-esque color.
