Costello Tagliapietra - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Costello Tagliapietra put a punky twist on classic dresses for their Fall 2009 collection, shown at the Altman building on Friday. Citing surrealist artist H.R. Giger and Irving Penn's photography as inspiration, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra sent plenty of their signature ultrasuede jersey dresses down the runway--models stomped fiercely, hand on hips--but with elements of catlike eyeliner and blue and purple streaks in their hair, the look was were anything but ladies who lunch. “We melded the two into this sort of sci-fi, powerful woman and that’s sort of like the muse for the collection,” explained Tagliapietra. Hand-pleating in dresses, an innovative “jodhpur sleeve,” and Swarovski crystal details (used sparingly, thankfully) were successful finishing touches.
