RISTO BIMBILOSKI’s international leanings--- 

...born in Macedonia, toiled in Paris for Thierry Mugler and Jean Colonna, and now with his eponymous  clothing carried in stores worldwide--- offered an edgy nuanced collection of modern separates on the one hand---for F/W 2010…and some earthy heavier knits on the other.

It is the prints though---(that appeared in the first half of the runway show)--- inspired by the painterly works of Nicola Sassoon via computer pixels of imagined landscapes in turmoil---that got the audience abuzz.

Eye-catching for sure, especially since so many collections for Fall/Winter 2010 are solid tones played up with different textures…

Here we got the crafted elements of hand knitting and quilting on the “New New Age” silhouettes of flowing tunics, cocoon jackets,  minis paired with cropped jackets (that yes, would look great with jeans), terrific trenches ---plus sheer bodysuits and leggings.

The prints really stole the show…zig zag slashes of volcanic colors mixed with daggers of orange, twilight blues, and biomorphic shapes…and geometric pale squares of pastels.

 Really outstanding--- and as we were exiting the show, our fashion colleagues concurred.

MAC Makeup complimented the sophisticated looks with a mahogany pencil layered three times…on the lips. 

no surprise to us...backstage staples...Embroylisse Lait Creme Concentre, Kerastase, B&B Surf Spray...

OPI nails --- a fun sapphire “Blue MyMind” is available now.
