NYFW, day 1

my fashion week this season has started with toni maticevski's show at altman building. we used one of toni maticevski's pieces - a gorgeous airy dress with aged veil and a big rose with brunt edges (below) - for our recent zink shoot, and i couldn't help but fall in love with his designs immediately.
 the new collection is eclectic but very much in toni's style: romantic and soft meets aggressive and sexy in an unusual combination of patterns and cuts. my favorite looks were the long multi-layered pastel dress that made model look like she was floating in the air, not walking; as well as an all-black ensemble of over-sized belted cardigan with puffy veil skirt.

one show that i always go to but unfortunately missed this season (it was way right after toni maticevski's show but in bryant park) was ports 1961. after checking pictures on i got even more upset - looks like their FW2010 collection is very interesting, with retro-looking head-pieces and architectural designs. i loved the subtle color palette they chose for the season when most of the designers go with safe black.
another eye candy that day was mik cire's show at bryant park. beautiful "street chic" men's wear with amazing detailing on sleeves and shoulders (i wish posted backshots!) styled with rough leather accessories. and even though designed for men, i can totally see some of the jackets and pants worn by women.
