New York Fashion Week is underway and not without instance from Mother Nature and her blizzard to the morning’s untimely and shocking death of designer Lee Alexander McQueen. He will be sorely missed. Gone too soon.
After a moment of silence, Ports 1961 revealed their collection for Fall 2010. Besides the obligatory black, the color palette was gorgeous in rich green, bronze, steel and shades of deep burgundy, plum and purple.
Many pieces were reminiscent of the 1920’s era, done to perfection of course, with a young twist. Some cuts on the other hand, were cooly space age, but appropriate. I admire the use of full length gloves up (and sometimes over) the elbow, and adore the return of gloves for style and not just warmth. Ladylike with an edge…very fashion forward but very wearable.
Congratulations to the design house of Ports 1961. Brava.Brilliance.Love.
