New York Fashion Week - Spring 2009: Day 5 Recap

Marc by Marc Jacobs

The latest collection featured flirty signature dresses, light denim standouts, jumpsuits galore and knotted necklaces. Critics said that the collection would be surely favored by the youth especially the baby dolls and trapeze dresses, the patchwork denim and the splashy prints as well as the tweedy jackets with rolled-up sleeves and pants with paper-bag waists.

Narciso Rodriguez

Narciso started his "Ninja" spring collection in mostly black and white. The collection was created with ninja-star prints and ninja-star bugle-bead embroidery, one-sleeved bandage dresses, and studded bodices looks like an armor. The pieces usually appear in a contrasting color or fabric arranged geometrically on the front and back of tops and dresses with cutouts. His colour palette is composed of sage, kelly green, red, salmon pink, rust, and nude.


Kate and Laura Mulleavey referred their models as "beautiful androids". Futhermore, after seeing their collection anyone could say that they're so much in to cyber thingy. The collection came in nude color: pleated skirts and cut out leggings with slashed sleeveless tops. But at the end of the show, Grecian gowns can be seen on the runway.

Cynthia Steffe

Shaun Kearney offered something for every girl, from sporty separates to full, frilly skirts, eyelet bustiers, smocking, and a lime green crepe de chine dress.

Max Azria

Max and Lubov Azria were minimalists for Spring 2009. The audience watched a parade of jersey girls in an almost exclusively pale and neutral color palette. The look for the season mostly very fluid, with lots of draping, twisting, and casually exposed shoulders and backs. There was also a clean athleticism to it, with tops and dresses layered over bandeaux, bodysuits, and stretchy ribbed belts. Evening wear was similarly clean in unembellished georgette, cut to dramatically flap and flutter.

Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson started his Spring 2009 show with sharply tailored suits in neon colors. His speacialty includes bohemian beading, caftans, a belted, allover sequin tunic dress, a beaded bed jacket worn with an easy T-shirt and cropped white jeans, and an absolutely electric abstract floral-print chiffon jumpsuit, as well as parachute pants.

Sophie Theallet

Theallet began with crisp white dresses and moved into beige colors decorated with floral prints, followed by dramatic Grecian gowns. Shirtdresses were belted at natural waists, there was frill without overdoing it, and it was all about the details, from the ties to the visible zippers.
