(NEW YORK) ISAAC MIZRAHI
“Color is another progression of my world,” said Isaac Mizrahi of his Resort 2010 collection. The designer's signature brights governed his collection, which was injected with elements like oversized safari pockets, layers of ruffles, intricate side gathers and of course, those neon hues (and the shoes to match). Touches of tweed catered to the lunch circuit. “Isn’t that totally Michelle Obama!” the designer exclaimed of one such look. The flawless sheaths would certainly suit aspiring first ladies of any sort. “I like really really sweet things," Mizrahi concluded. "It's almost ironic how sweet it is."
There is not a gown that this brand can't reinterpret, and in the collection and couture lines shown for resort, a faintly bohemian spirit permeated all the frippery. Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka are masters of their trade, and it showed in pieces like a black-and-white strapless empire gown with a wild tulle skirt festooned with trim to resemble skribbles. A few jewel-toned ruffled gowns, decked out with beaded belts, catered to the gal willing to invest in versatility. A crop of exquisite couture kaftans in shades like terra cotta presented the freshest takes on evening, and one can't help but wish they'd do them in the commercial collection as well.
