Costello Tagliapietra Spring 2013
Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra certainly know their way around a slinky dress. They've made them the hallmark of their line, and for Spring 2013, they once again offered them up in spades. Draped, wrapped, and tied — one by one they came down the runway; some fell off the shoulder in asymmetrical folds, while others — appealingly — closed kimono-style at the waist. The real winners, however, were the styles that came in acid-hued splash prints; those felt powerful and wearable all at once.
