NEW YORK — The American collections blew through town last week and several designers — some new, some pros — offered their takes on girly flirts, nature lovers and sophisticated women.
Sometimes a girl just needs to slip into something comfortable along with her Birkenstocks. She can head to Indigo People, where in its debut women’s collection, designer Siri Kuptamethee took inspiration from Mother Nature and showed just how cool camping and safari frocks can be with lots of neutral colors and camouflage pieces. Victor de Souza, meanwhile, turned out some interesting draped dresses, corset tops and jackets. A bit of comic relief interrupted the serious atmosphere, however, when one of the male models lost his pants while strolling down the runway. Language boutique owner Ana Abdul created her own line a year ago with a collection of reworked, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. Because of demand, she decided to create looks that could actually be manufactured and this time showed a Twenties-inspired collection of dresses and tops trimmed with re-embroidered lace, beading and silk fringe.
