TIME & PLACE: Friday, September 5, @ 12 noon,
540 West 21st Street
THE VIBE: Sexy Rive Gauche, the neat hair and black lined cat eyes contributed to the effect.

TREND: a neutral monotone palette with a lot of gray.
You can find your essential black highwaisted pants here made more interesting thanks to the flattering tapering at the ankle.

SOME SURPRISES
After many outfits in a neutral palette, Yigal brought out some colorful peacock and paisley prints in green and black, and upbeat Beach Boys style music.

SIGNATURE SEXY
There was a black halter piece and interesting folded fronts that weren’t quite ruffles [that would be too prissy here] and twist front details as in the wrap front gray tankini that was superbe! Accessories were stiletto ankle boots that vamped up the easy day tunics and caftans. Here’s a look that flatters women from size zeros to fourteens.

FAVORITE PIECE
The lemon lime sleeveless dress with an asymmetric ruffled hem for the woman who lives in the posh 16th arrondisement in Paris. Her hip sister who’s living in the Marais district would be the neighborhood’s femme fatale in a shiny black swagged dress.

HIP BRIDE – the white fitted halter dress with some interesting swagging that closed the show.
