Another Persian carpet catwalk…and another fab fabric laden collection-this time by new to us label HARARE NY by Aussie designer Caroline Fuss. She delivered a terrific collection of expressionist painters' (Frankenthaler, Diebenkorn, ad Rothko) inspired-wonderfully paired separates---with stylish sophistication- and spot-on tailoring skills on display …
Even with a really late start---our glimpse backstage had us telling our fellow attendees…"wait, wait - it's worth it."
|cowl neck sweaters-theme we saw a lot-a very appropriate one, given the weather ---too.|
"Finding inspiration in the vivid palette and abstract works of expressionist artists…"With women wearing the same clothes year round-layering with sweaters, blazers---with skin bearing backs not seeming out of place on many of the dresses.
|this pleated skirt is INCREDIBLE-can't tell from the picture but the inside of the pleats are of a sheer material…stunning---air brushing technique of pigment dispersion-reference to Frankenthaler's approach of diluting paint.|
|wool plaid flattering cocoon shape---|
|rich mix of patterns and solid colors -totally worked----|
|Rothko inspired graduations of a color...|
|leather strips and sheer pleats ----nice|
We really like the makeup---a bit stronger eyes (smoky-dark plum lined- with a bit of shine on the lids)- than what we typically think of a natural Bobbi Brown look-with nude, barely there lips and clean matte skin…with bit of sculpting blush.
