Fashion Week-- Misses
While I love saturated colors, Anna Sui's collection was out of control; like when a 12-year-old first decides she likes to dress funky. Lots of filmy dresses and tights (Mama like) but too many sources of inspiration (think 4 Non Blondes goes on a world tour in 1923 with Austin Powers).
Derek Lim's tailoring is outstanding, but the whole collection looks as though his muse may have been Helena Bonham Carter, if she were better put-together.
Isaac Mizrahi is usually reliable, but this season featured some truly hideous prints that reminded me of bad desktop wallpaper.
