Charles Anastase


LONDON…Moving against the flow by coming from Paris to show in London, established talent Charles Anastase delivered a S/S 09 collection which was a push and pull between naughty and nice, summarizing the dichotomy within one young muse. Atop vertiginous platforms, models teetered down the runway in sheer, girlish layers piled over visible thigh high stockings or dark underthings. The schoolgirl, the innocent bookworm and the playful ballerina were all on display here, ripe for deconstruction into key juniors pieces. Standouts included a ruffled, cropped denim jacket, silk jumpsuit and a sheer, tiered white dress. Anastase gave a quirky, but inspirational look at juniors-appropriate apparel.
