The Terrible Burden of Basics at Narciso Rodriguez

The great disappointment of the Liz Claiborne and Narciso Rodriguez partnership sits for us at the uncomfortable space between creative vision and production values. As a designer, Narciso is not one for daring geometric interpretations or commercially confused offerings, he gives high end consumers the subtle brilliance of basics done right. In this sense the partnership should have been a great boon to a designer needing production and sourcing help to further his commitment to making the best possible garments. Having a conglomerate on your side gives you the ability to negotiate deals with textile firms and producers that would be impossible as an independent. Whether or not this support manifested we may never know. But we can only hope that there was no stifling of creative effort because in truth we wonder who could possibly argue with his incredibly appealing and easy to sell garments.
