Tuleh: Barack Obama, fashion muse? Before his show, designer Bryan Bradley said he was inspired by Obama's optimistic "Yes, we can" speech, and it's an attitude he repackaged for fashion. And indeed, his collection flaunted a cool, confident woman who's not going to let anything keep her down. She's still ladylike to the core — this is Tuleh, after all — but vamped up with shots of Seventies Bianca Jagger glamour. Thus, there were plenty of lush coats and prim cardi-and-skirt combos, but also slinky dressing robes done as eveningwear, and even a Studio 54-ready violet jacket, shirt and velvet trouser getup. The finishings came courtesy of candy-colored boots and fabulous giant snakeskin handbags. Here's hoping that rosy outlook proves infectious because who wouldn't welcome a chic, anything's-possible vibe?
