NYC Spring 09 VII

1. Narciso Rodriguez:
This dress drop-dead sexy in all the right ways. The bondage top says femme-fatale and the lose silhouette at the bottom says "I will not be restricted by fashion!" or something less lame. Whatever, the point is this dress is awesome because you look like sex without actually being on display. (Also, I believe the print is actually ninja stars, so that tells you everything you need to know).

2. Rodarte:
I'm going to give it to you straight. I love Rodarte. You probably love them too. So what I am going to say I say it out of love. I'm afraid the sisters are turning into a one trick pony. Their skills are incredible and their vision unparalleled, sure, but their spring offerings felt like reworked fall offerings in a different color palette and I was expecting to be WOWED with INNOVATION. That being said, I dig this look. The textures are incredible and it feels surprisingly wearable considering the materials. I am not on board with the tights either. Please don't hate me Kate and Laura, I am still your faithful servant.

3. Betsey Johnson:
STOP THE PRESSES! BETSEY JOHNSON PUT ON A CRAZY SHOW!
Yeah, exactly. This jacket is cool.

You can stop there- that's all I need to hear. Now would someone hand me my Mastercard?
