DEVI KROELL: FALL/WINTER 2009




























REFINED TAILORING/KNOCKOUT CARRYALLS

Words, Images Judith Ecochard

Devi Kroell’s sophmore outing is all about dressing the executive New York/DC women that work in corporations, the halls of Congress, or serve on charity boards.


















For versatile day to evening looks there are several appropriate attire options…a silk wool boucle jacket, a boxy black silk suit with origami flourishes, ruffled collars, and slim cigarette style pants paired with a chic shrunken jacket that had us thinking Gucci/Tom Ford. Our initial reaction was wow- this is how grown-up women dress.









For cocktail affairs there are a lot of rich shimmering jewel toned silk frocks with gentle draping/gatherings…both strapless and sleeveless.












The bags are stunning (duh) as in an oversized python shopper and foldover clutches.

The highlight, shoewise is the Joker Bootie “crafted with a hidden platform, a fierce and chic metal encasing detail on the architectural tubular heel…”

Kudos to the airbrush perfection of Temptu makeup artists.
