Narciso Rodriguez has had some bumpy collections and unfortunately for Spring 2010 it looked, well, lumpy.
A mostly black collection with touches of purple, red, mint and grey was hampered with loosely shaped jackets and dresses that may not be very flattering on the average woman unless belted, but I don’t know that that’s what Narciso had in mind. He was trying to create a free and easy collection with spare cuts but it appeared poorly executed. Some jackets were lumpy and unflattering, even on bambi-legged models. Exposed zipper-front tops and dresses looked dated, bondage-like inserts on dresses reminiscent of Alexander McQueen didn’t help the situation either.

But there were some amazing pieces, tops and dresses with sheer inserts, some floaty show-stoppers and a superbly cut cap-sleeved jacket on look 24 was confident and assured. It’s a shame the whole collection wasn’t like that one little stroke of genius.
