INSPIRATION: "Napoleon and Josephine... the appeal of opposites -- masculine meets feminine, draping paired with structure, and neutral colors with high-contrast brights, inspired by photographs of Peter Beard"
BEST LOOKS: Cossacks coat over tile bead strapless dress; mauve double-breasted chunky sweater with belt and tartan short; strapless black dress with sequined skirt
ACCESSORIES: Super-high chunky platform clogs, aubergine tights, leather belts with pouches
WHO WAS THERE: Olivia Palermo, Oksana Baiul
WHAT WE THOUGHT: Amy Smilovic's Fall 2010 line continues on her best traditions -- how is it that the same Tibi dress can look just right on a 40-something and on a 20-something, as well? Her clothes combine youthful sparkle with sophisticated simplicity, both in the perfect measure. This collection included several nubby or chunky sweaters (or were they coats?) often paired with rich brown belts.
It reminded me a bit of what I envisioned college girls wearing when I wasn't one yet, but the sweaters made me want to wear the ensembles to the office
