Thuy - New York: Spring 2010
1930s goddess mixed with S&M may seem a strange combination, but designer Thuy Diep pulled it off confidently; the former with silky dresses and wrap tops, the latter with zippers-lots of zippers. Used as pure adornment on pants or as a sexy fastener that ran up and down (and sometimes across) garments, the silver zips added an edge to a collection full of chic, wearable pieces. Biker jackets and pleated, cropped pants gave a modern touch.
