New York Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Narciso Rodriguez

Sometimes a designer's inspiration is crystal clear. For Spring, Mr. Rodriguez was inspired by Japan, and all its Ninja glory. A palette comprised of black, white, red and green made for bold, graphic pieces. Sharp cuts, banded dresses and colorblocking added to the intensity. Mind you, this man paid homage to the bandage dress before the house of Herve Leger was resurrected. So, he knows his stuff. And his stuff was strong, sexy and oh so Narciso. Long time fan, Claire Danes, sitting front row, would look stellar in any of the graphic garb. Though the ninja star print was a bit too kitschy, the separates and cocktail dresses will survive future seasons.
