This season Maticevski took more of a slapstick glamour approach to the collection, with sparkles, satin, and mainly filmy, floaty gowns taken precedence. Most edges were left unfinished, giving a very ‘the clock has struck 12 for Cinderella’ type of aesthetic. The footwear collection was both edgy and sweet, complimenting the forlorn, tattered princess look. Most certainly, Maticevski’s gowns could appear on the Red Carpet; we’re thinking Drew Barrymore or Rachel McAdams.

Inspired by both the past and future, Tia Cibani used shades of tobacco, mulberry, iris and rosemary to juxtapose the superflous with the fitted in her silhouettes. The nod to Pierre Cardin space-age chic was updated with exposed zippers, watercolor prints, and amazing, oversized necklaces. Attention to shoulder detailing was a standout, and the sweaters will certainly make the must-have list for fall 2010.
