Dennis Basso’s Fall 2011 collection was shown at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York’s Lincoln Center. Basso’s look was tougher and more masculine this season. Huge fur hoods, kidassia skirts, and hand-knit cashmere sweater dresses were standouts. Basso’s signature fur coats were dominant on the runway.
This season we were invited backstage, and see our photographs of the hair and make up preparations here.View Photos from the complete collection here.
For Fall 2009, Richard Chai delivers a collection that would not be out of place in downtown galleries and studio lofts, where tan leather, cool charcoals, and sleek pantsuits make a perfect transition from work to lounge.
Olive parkas and fluffy spotted feather coats mixed well with the cool concrete tones. Slouchy pants and wide-legged trousers kept prim turtleneck sweaters and lamb shearling looking comfortable and gritty. There was a very masculine approach to the sculpted blazers and leather vests with turned up collars – although the dove-grey draped separates and those all-over print suits in Poppy and Confetti were definitely very flirty elements. Bright hues do come to play, seen in the fuchsia tank dresses. Also noteworthy are the scruffy open-toe lace up boots, which added a very grungy appeal.
