Shipley & Halmos - New York Spring 2010

"We started out this collection, as we do most collections, by focusing on the idea of conflicting elements and trying to recreate them into something new. This season we wanted to focus on static versus motion," offered Sam Shipley of Shipley & Halmos. The duo's presentation was an exploration in structure versus fluidity. Sharp lines in suits and athletic drawstrings accenting billowy tops created a dichotomous allure. The Camel-tones and cool grays provided the color palate, with bursts of powerful eggplant and cherry. Soft cottons, woven wool crepe and airy chiffon added depth to the collection, and provided an intelligent, witty sensibility to the pieces.
