Molly Goddard said her fall collection was an investigation of modern couture – exploring new fabrics, volumes and dimensions.
Her signature tulle smock dresses and overlays came in black, aqua, sepia and rose with shots of russet and Pepto Bismol pink — tiered and gathered at the arms and hems.
Some constituted 40 meters of silk tulle, while other fabrications took in printed corduroy and cotton, polyester tulle and a rust-colored waterproof nylon fabric that resembled leather.
A gown of sepia tulle with aqua overlay, secured at the shoulders with black bow-ribbon shoulders, was breathtaking.
The presentation’s surrealist set with its white platforms and columns (designed by Goddard’s mother, who is a stylist) took its cue from the cult Japanese gangster film “Tokyo Drifter” and piano music from the movie’s soundtrack mixed in with a spot of rave.
