Designers play peek-a-boo at NY Fashion Week
Question of the Day
The soothing palette in shades of ivory, tan and parchment got boosts from quick contrasts in navy, black and a bit of indigo denim.
Silhouettes were lanky and easy. An embroidered poncho worn with a belt looping through the front side only would make a chic daytime dress, and a cashmere silk tank dress-sweater combination in oatmeal was the sort of no-frills look that a woman would reach for again and again.
Planning on wearing Thakoon for spring? Start your crunches now.
The designer Thakoon Panichgul took the sheer look and ran with it for a collection that had a boudoir feel, with loose pajama stripes, bra tops and sheer lingerie-like dresses. At times the runway seemed more suited to Victoria’s Secret than the front-row crowd that included former White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers.
Panichgul won name recognition for dressing first lady Michelle Obama on many occasions, but in nothing quite so daring.
To be sure, there were some beautiful clothes that could travel outside the bedroom _ a pajama stripe silk layered vest with white cotton twill pants had a loose and pretty feel. Starlets might consider the cobalt metallic python dress _ it would be a good choice for Kerry Washington, another front row guest.
Catherine Malandrino took a trip to an artists’ village in the south of her native France with crackled leathered bolero jackets, flowing gowns in breezy jersey and wide-legged trousers in terra-cotta, olive and clay.
She was true to her free-spirited roots as her models stood as statuary on pylons in a Lincoln Center courtyard.
Black macrame gladiator sandals to the thigh were paired with slash tops and teeny knit bottoms. A long dress worthy of the beach was hand-crocheted in ivory with open ovals from the chest to the bellybutton.
Malandrino’s palette paid homage to ceramics maker Roger Capron and the southern French village of Vallauris.
