Christian Siriano S/S 2010

We won't talk about Project runway since that's old news but what we can say about Christian Siriano is that this young new designer has a future! Mr. Siriano fully demonstrates that he is comfortable working in color and shows a level of consistency in his designs. More so his control in using a restricted color palette makes this collection more pulled together and allows more options for women. The standout pieces we loved were the washed silk linen flounce top with diagonal two toned striped skirt and the leather and chiffon motorcross jacket in blush cotton slim fit trouser in blush. We feel these as well other looks have strong editorial appeal for future photo shoots. At the end of his show he showed two "red carpet" contenders which were a satin-faced organza draped strapless gown with beaded bodice in blush and the second a chiffon and tulle-layered ombre gown in blush and volcanic. Our only knock is we feel the collection could have been better edited, but Christian sat the perfect trip and delivered a worthy collection. The real question with the economy in its current state is will the buyers be placing orders?
