Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra took their signature liquid jersey to a new level with their fall 2010 collection presented at Milk Studios last night.
In a color palette of dusty rose, sand, bark, and sunset orange, the collection featured seemingly simple silhouettes made special with pleats and drapes which gently wrapped around the body and tucked into thin leather belts by Metalskin. The belts cinched in the waits of most models, making for a polished look that often anchored voluminous tops and bottoms.
A pastel pebble print, used in two beautiful georgette dresses, was a highlight of the show as was a rose-brown long sleeve dress with a drop waist and diagonal draping. The fact that Costello Tagliapietra's lineup would be flattering on most bodies wasn't lost on the audience, as we could hear personal orders being discussed before the models even took the runway for the show's finale.
