Sophia Kokosalaki - Paris Fall 2009
(PARIS) Le Greek, c'est chic--this season, more than ever. Last season, Sophia Kokosalaki looked back to her roots with a bright homage to Byzantium--but Fall was future-focused, and the rock-chick vibe was one of the most mature one seen on runways this season. Sheer black tulle dresses were constructed to a point, then allowed to ramble about the body. Loose leather pants were studded in scatters--both modern and cliché-free. The lamé pieces--a Kokosalaki signature--were beautifully restrained. No matter how bravely this girl dresses, she manages to keep it cool. Chronic red carpet dwellers need to put in some calls.
