Finally, a Spring 09 collection from Los Angeles Fashion Week we can say something really nice about...finally some really beautiful clothing to go with all of those beautiful houses over there! The Crispin & Basilo collection was so nice in fact, that we think there would be a place for it among the offsite happenings during New York Fashion Week, or maybe we should hope that they don't follow in the footsteps of the countless other designers who have come to the Big Apple in search of some self-respect. Maybe Crispin & Basilo will continue to grow in California and serve as a lesson for how to make pretty, laid back (i.e. West Coast) clothing without having to come to New York just to prove it. Bonus points for the sequin and jersey combos, Crispin & Basilo, and ...THANK YOU!
