Nicole Farhi - London Fall 2009
(LONDON) For Fall 2009, Nicole Farhi presented a lovely collection with the starting point of a 1940s silhouette that she modernized with a rainbow of colours and fabrics, including sheer metallic printed chiffon dresses and blouses, colourful tweed suits and coats, and cashmere knitwear that boasted playful oversized sleeves. The shoulder and sleeve are the focus this season, and the palette is a mix of metallic shades and candy-wrapper colored scarlets, mint greens and fuchsias - we love the rainbow sequined pants for a mischievous evening look. Bows abounded, from the LBD adorned with bow details to the pussy-bow bloused paired with wool trousers, to the suggestion of a bow on skirts and dresses. "It's very happy," Farhi told us of her collection this season. "This collection is glamorous and quirky without taking itself too seriously, it has a sense of fun."
