VPL S/S 2011

Sunday September 12, 2010
Pier 59

Designer Victoria Bartlett was faithful to her style and customer with this Spring Summer 2011 collection. She clearly enjoys what she does and it shows. With unexpected cuts, layered combinations, splicing and funny shapes this presentation of 48 looks was everything but boring.

ADAM S/S 2011

Saturday September 11, 2010
The Stage

Always of fan of Adam Lippes & his designs this season was just not for me.  It was like Peasant Girl occasionally travelling back to the city.  His girl’s were self assured, defined by ease, refinement & simplicity which made sense with the theme he was executing, but there was a lackluster effortlessness that just didn’t move.

Gottex S/S 2011

Wednesday September 15, 2010
The Theater

Technology fused with luxury was the theme for Spring 2011 at Gottex, all created to “accentuate the female form.” As this is swimwear, I would hope the latter goes without saying, however the technological aspects shown through loud & clear in this collection that is, as one observer noted aloud within ear shot of me “really beautiful swimwear for really beautiful women who lounge by really beautiful pools, but never swim.”
