I can't tell you how much I wish I'd been able to find a picture of Davidelfin's one-armed suit. I even had a caption for it: Do you think this suit is 15% off? Ha ha ha! Recession humor! Get it?
I've been to two shows so far, so my palate is relatively refreshed, but I have to say I've never seen anything like the Davidelfin show at the Tents. It was more like a couture show, in that the clothes were visually stunning but I can't imagine anyone wearing them in real life. Or even in fake life (New York City.)
In addition to the one-sleeved suit, there were trousers with mock-shorts stitched on the front. (When culottes are too cool! Try pantalots!) Also, the inevitable shorts-with-sweater menswear look, which I've seen at many shows but would totally mock if anyone wore it in real life. (My legs are in Brazil! My torso is in the Alps!)
The color palate was pretty interesting, as well. The first half was all in various shades of wintergreen, and the second was in all in shades of blue.
Also, everyone wore Louboutins, but I'm starting to think I'm going to be the only person in Bryant Park this week who isn't.
