Steinunn Fall 2008
We braved the rain to head to the forbidden zone of the meat packing district for the fall 2008 Steinunn collection. When we arrived it was just us and the WWD photographer. I guess the bad weather might have detoured other editors from making the trek.
From what we saw the entire collection is knitwear and seems to be small and safe which is not a bad way to go, but when we read the designers information there was mention of working with both Calvin Klein and Ton Form for quite a period of time. Knowing this, it would have been nice to see a broader range of fabric use. Certainly Calvin and Tom did not just use knitwear to produce collections. The talent is there and maybe a spring collection will bring out a more expansive collection.
