Super soft knits, futuristic batwing-sleeve dresses, and leather pailettes dresses and skirts made up a strong collection.
Slinky was the word du jour, with heavily draped layers of jersey and silk in mostly muted hues.
Loved the Abaete for paylesrs heels and ankle boots draped heavily with chains – the clothes too reflected the chained motif, along with wide ruffles, jaquard, and a bit of metallics.
Androgyny was defined anew, with men donning high-waisted pants with a corset-like aesthetic, see through pants, and (my favorite) a blazer that instead of buttons, had a zipper closure.
Despite the Lindsay Lohan media circus, this was one of Charlotte’s strongest collections to date, with a heavy dose of leather and unusual detailing like elbow and back slits built into tops and jackets.
University of Art:
There’s no doubt that these students are incredibly talented, with carefully engineered prints on oversized sweaters and coats being the showstoppers.
It’s nice to see that Jason Wu catered to all women, and not just the first lady in his runway collection, with a great selection of wonderful dresses, complete with incredible prints.
