collection images: narciso rodriguez, resort
by Jeremy Danté
since michelle obama rocked that red narciso rodriguez number i had my eye on the label. i have to say, initially, i was not as impressed as others seemed to be. as an award winning designer, i was seeking some form of modernization; something that i would define as chic- rather than having someone spoon feed me what they define as style. this pre-season, i found that. i loved the collections palette & respond positively to the collections modernized approach to female sophistication. the use of print was freshly inspired & i love the use of a muted palette as other collections have already began to take the route of more vibrant tones. with past design experience working with calvin klein & donna karan; the theme of clean american style is a highlight in the work that narciso is doing & has done. this pre-season being one of his best efforts, in my opinion- im super excited to see what will be presented come show season for new york fashion week this september. a dope collection overall.
