Fashion Week Diary: NYC Spring 2010, Day 6

BETSEY JOHNSON: If one thing is guaranteed from Betsey Johnson, it’s visual craziness. Her Spring 2010 collection did not disappoint on that front. From her signature floral and animal prints to bright wrist rosettes to over-frizzed hair to dark lipstick, this collection was a veritable whirlwind of Betsey’s punk rock style. In terms of actual pieces, mini dresses abounded with sequins, tulle and ruffles taking pride of place. Speaking of tulle, who could miss the giant tulle hairpieces sitting atop all that frizz?

MALANDRINO: “World traveler” seemed to be the main theme in Catherine Malandrino’s Spring 2010 collection, with a little bohemian-luxe thrown in for good measure. The designed said that the collection was inspired by Sudanese clans, Saharan nomads, Peruvian tribes and Polynesian natives and it wasn’t hard to see how. With gorgeous ethnic prints in bright colors, fringe detail on everything from dresses to shoes and tribal tattoos, you’ll be feeling the urge to travel after taking a look at this collection.

MARC BY MARC JACOBS: It is sometimes hard for us to imagine how someone can get the inspiration for one collection, but Marc Jacobs designs for three and never seems to be out of ideas. The Spring 2010 collection for Marc by Marc Jacobs was fun and vibrant, with an abundance of different prints and colors. One of the best elements was the puffed sleeves giving us a hint of the 80s without going overboard. Tiny party dresses, bright harem pants and belted jumpsuits all made a more-than-welcome appearance, also.

RODARTE: For their Spring 2010 collection, the Mulleavy sisters were inspired by a trip they took to Death Valley and black vultures, giving us a collection filled with desert colors and shredded fabric, to start. Tribal tattoos were seen on the models arms while their hair was wrapped in knotted wool. The pieces started out with plaid prints and tattered hems and moved from that into feathers, tie dye and patchwork designs. Finally, the sky-high Nicholas Kirkwood-designed shoes almost made the models feet look caged.

TEMPERLEY LONDON: Alice Temperley’s Spring 2010 collection was apparently inspired by the circuses of the 20s & 30s. With prints that resembled the big-top tents, embellished clutches, bags and hats, harlequin prints and more, it seems like her vision was a success without being too clown-like. All the pieces were totally wearable, with on-trend stud detailing on dresses, belts and suit jackets.

(L-R) MATTHEW AMES, MAX AZRIA, HALSTON: Matthew Ames’ collection was sophisticated and refined, with plenty of classic black and white touches, beautiful drapery and fluid silhouettes. Over at Max Azria the focus seemed to be on cut-outs and caged designs (above) while still keeping things soft with comfortable-looking dresses and plenty of neutrals. The Halston collection focused mainly on the perfect summer dresses (above) with the key elements being strapless shapes, pale hues and ruffles galore.

(L-R) BRIAN REYES, G-STAR, BADGLEY MISCHKA:  At Brian Reyes, they “started with the theory of evolution.” This meant skeleton prints, bleeding hearts and darker designs. It wasn’t all dark, though, with feminine denim pieces, ruffled skirts and white bodysuits. The G-Star collection was full of its signature urban cool, with sharp blazers, mini dresses, drop-crotch pants and the ubiquitous jumpsuit. Over at Badgley Mischka, they went for super-luxury, with heavy beading and jewels, ruffles, gorgeous evening gowns and a lot of classic black and white.
