The square set of Bimba Bose’s jaw as she emerged from the smoke and made her way down the runway to Bjork’s “Sod Off” set the somber tone of the Davidelfin Fall 2010 show. Yellow and fuschia provided the only pops of color in the collection full of black, gray and white.
Though the collection featured both men’s and women’s clothing, it had a decidedly masculine feel and Bose’s short carrot-colored hair and androgynous look provided a striking canvas for the first look. The idea of a fine tailored suit made it’s way into almost every look. Even a floor length dress, with it’s structured shoulder details, held a hint of the suiting. Designer David Delfin occasionally played up the feminine form, showing off the models legs in mini dresses and skirts.
I got a great view of the collection from my front row seat. I still can’t get over it. Eeek! Have I mentioned how much I love those yellow Christian Louboutin booties?
