Lake & Stars
waahooo, i’m baaack!
Just in time for Fashion Week! My first stop during Fashion Week was on Friday for The Lake & Stars presentation at Studio 59. I wasn’t going to post these pics since they came out crappy on my point and shoot, but i decided f-it, it was a good presentation, and I had fun. The Lake and Stars is the only entirely lingerie show, being shown during Fashion Week and it seemed like everyone wanted to check out the action. It didn’t hurt to have some pino before noon.
The Lake and Stars is supposed to be lingerie designed to stand alone or complement an outfit, the brand hopes to expand our idea of what are normally unmentionables.
For Fall 2011, The Lake & Stars seemed to put their own twist on 1940s and 1950s pin-up lingerie style, particularly with the full coverage bottoms. The presentation was a nice mix of lightweight delicates, beading, netting, and velvet…although i could have gone without the velvet. Another nice twist was they used a mixture of various sized models in the show; that was refreshing.
The Lake & Stars designers, Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman teamed up with artist, Francesca Dimattio who painted the shoes for the Fall 2011 presentation. I got a chance to speak to her, she was such a sweat heart; we spoke a bout her collaboration and how cool the stage flooring was.
I also ran into Project Runway winner, Gretchen Jones, about what she’s up to. She’ll be showing her collection next season, and her website http://www.gretchenjonesnyc.com launches next week.
On my way out of The Lake & Stars, which felt kind of like a mini party in the middle of the day, I ran into Robert Verdi and ended up in a runway walk off for the Robert Verdi Show…i want to see the footage of that already!
Later that day I stopped by the Honor by Giovanna Randal, which had a few nice pieces. I was amazed how they were able to transform Highline Ballroom.
