YOANA BARASCHI FALL 2011

Lincoln Center, NYC


Words/Images Judith Ecochard





New to us ---but apparently a label quite popular with stylish actresses like SIenna Miller and Halle Berry, Romanian born Yoana Baraschi showed what we call a grown-up girl collection of separates that for us---highlighted her signature way with with hand loomed textiles, and some interesting prints...no doubt finely honed while working for fashion fav Betsy Johnson.


























The knotted hair, and make-up had a mixed quality of hard and soft---much like the intellectual ensembles---which according to the handout----was about a dream-like Virtualand---populated with 70's glam divas morphing into modern day take on the world gals.

Well we def got that reference---but as this is fashion, we focused on the warm outerwear pieces first and foremost---particularly the wonderful knits matched up with silk blouses, leather jackets, and tapered wool pants...that would fit any wardrobe.

Very sophisticated...with artful details.
