Costello Tagliapietra Fall 2010 Review

The collections by Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra are always a New York fashion week treat. They have that certain something about their work-much like the Mulleavy sisters at Rodarte-that makes it special and fall 2010 was no exception.
The models looked beautiful with hair crudely swept up and their faces were kept bare except for a stamp of red lipstick. Swirls of tightly bound jersey-their specialty- nipped the waist of a dress in what I can only describe as winter pastels of dusty clay and moss.
A dress in candied rose could’ve been disastrous if made by the wrong hands but looked effortless when done by Costello and Tagliapietra and that’s the beauty of their work: making the most notoriously difficult fabric look like a breezy walk in the park.
The pants left a lot to be desired, falling somewhere between a riding crop and a harem, distorting the hips which will flatter few.
I'm melting! I'm melting!!!
