Sophie Theallet - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) French designer Sophie Theallet may be an Azzedine Alaia alum, but you'd never know it from looking at her Fall collection. Instead of edgy and body-conscious, her looks were Native American-influenced, with natural shades and details like tiered prairie skirts. Theallet was missing the glam factor of her last collection (due to the Ugg-like Sorel moccasin boots weighing each look down), but details like pintucking and pleating showed that Theallet is a true craftswoman.
