Frank Tell Softens His Leather With Knits for Fall 2010

Frank Tell certainly knows his crowd — his leather heavy Fall 2010 presentation had more than a few tough-looking ladies watching admiringly on Friday night at Milk Studios.

Androgyny was the name of the game for Tell's models, to the extent that it was hard to tell whether a few were actually boys or girls. With slicked-back ponytails, he showed pieces in movements of color, starting with black, then white, ash gray, nude and finally a dose of baby blue. His sparing use of brightness was reflected likewise in the makeup, which consisted of little more than a dash of blue eyeshadow.

Tell owes a lot to Rick Owens with their shared affinity for draped and ruched leather — Tell's fabric, this season, also featured a smattering of crocodile embossing. He paired his leather with chunky knits reminiscent of another big label, but the combination of hard and soft had a futuristic "Barbarian Barbarella" bent all Tell's own. He threw in a few random strap and rivet details for good measure, completing each look with a pair of Raphael Young wedges.
