New York Fashion Week S/S 2010 - Chocheng and Trias

The last runway shows at New York Fashion Week S/S 2010 I saw were Chocheng and Trias. The Trias show took on a space age and structured aesthetic this season as shiny hi-tech fabric and futuristic shapes sashayed down the runway. The palette was neutral, with a tinge of blue. The bottoms were pod-like with some space (both in the spatial and planetary sense) at the back or front. I wonder what you can fit in there. They also look like they could turn into a sleeping bag, in case you need your beauty sleep while jetting off to some inter-galactic soirée. The stand out pieces in this collection are a stone grey hi-tech fabric dress with separate bustier pictured in the first photo and the blue ocean silk organza blouse with a draped back (I love my drapey clothes!), pictured here in the seventh photo with graphite black hi-tech fabric shorts.

For his spring/summer 2010 collection, Cho Cheng was inspired by a combination of Holly Golightly, Frederico Fellini and the Japanese obi. His pieces are structured yet feminine with romantic details. I was completely fascinated by the use of silk petals on the neckline, backside, side of his dresses and tops. They are both whimsical and visually intriguing. Other flattering details include the superbly tailored draping on gowns and suits. The finale piece was a white gown modeled by Coco Rocha, fit for a fairy tale wedding.

Stay tuned for next week....animal instinct.
