New York: At Catherine Malandrino’s intimate presentation, there were the signature Malandrino pieces like high-waisted wide-leg pants (with deep pleats and in white silk) and the show-stopping draped dresses and jumpsuits. But this season Catherine combined elegant fabrics with more sporty elements like cleverly placed power-mesh insets. “It’s just unexpected windows that show your body,” said Malandrino. The designer mixed advanced materials and techniques with traditional fabrics and clever workmanship: “I wanted to bring something from the royal heritage of France with guipure lace and couture craftsmanship and combine it with American sportswear.” — Celia Ingesson
