Catherine Holstein - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Catherine Holstein’s nerdy-hipster aesthetic took a slightly darker turn this season in what is surely not the last recession-inspired collection. “With the way things were in the economy, the dark period and whatnot, it kind of took on this passing through the night, pushing through—because I had that mentality the whole time, that we just had to push through the times,” Holstein said. The models sported messy hair and black lipstick. Not all was doom and gloom: leopard-print looks were surprisingly sophisticated, oversized plaid shirts added a grunge element, and the floppy hats that topped off several of the looks (designed in collaboration with Ellen Christine) gave a slightly ‘70s vibe to the collection. Cohesive? Not necessarily. Sellable? Absolutely.
