I love a lot of this, and it also reminds me of what I thought New York people dressed like when I was growing up. So, what a girl in Oakland thought the NYC fashion world/hostess at a hip restaurant was all about in the late 80s-early 90s. If that makes sense.
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.)
Don't worry! There was still plenty of structure and minimalism and faultless chic and all those other NR words we love (modern! architectural!) But things were definitely softer and, dare we say it...more romantic? In a suit-of-armor sort of way.
The rumors are flying that Michelle Obama will grace the cover of the March 2009 issue of Vogue. What sort of ensemble will editor-in-chief Anna Wintour (and, presumably, Barack Obama supporter and editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley) choose for the First Lady? Good question. They'll certainly have to choose an American…
Narciso Rodriguez is known for architectural shapes and a lot of tailored seams. You certainly got some of that in this latest collection, but I gotta say: I was not feeling the love. Yeah there were a few very pretty romantic touches and a couple of interesting silhouettes, but it was one of the least breast-friendly…
