New York Fashion Week S/S 2010 - Milly and Maria Pinto

Day 7 of NYSW was spent at the Milly show and Maria Pinto presentation. Milly's Spring/Summer 2010 theme is "Punk Meets Prep". Side-swept pony tails and giant knotted bows in black sheer material were spotted on heads of models walking down the runway. The collection is dominated by short hemlines with an emphasis on shorts paired with luxuriously embellished and boxy jackets, and flirty mini dresses. Black is also a major color on the runway. Michelle Smith, the designer behind Milly, also presented her collection alongside the debut of her jewelry collection, which features chunky and versatile layered necklaces.

Maria Pinto's installation was hosted at Banchet Flowers in the Meatpacking District. The collection was inspired by the raw sensuality and tension in the Argentine tango. Spiral chiffons, whisper soft leathers, stretch wools and shirred jersey were all featured in her dramatic and fantastical collection. Especially mesmerizing was the bright yellow shredded chiffon gown worn with the most exquisite hand jewelry.
