We've just come from the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2009 show, and body-skimming it was. Backstage Rowley talked about pairing things down to their most sleek, streamlined, sporty manifestations and the collection was just that. Things got interesting when Rowley employed cut-outs, block color, and sporty lace (a la Miu Miu Fall 08), but none of this was over the top because she kept things so close to the body. Stay tuned for runway photos, backstage photos, and runway video with interview--all coming through our doors later today. For now, here's a picture of the designer backstage with Bobbi Brown!
