New York: Taking a step away from the 80s-inspired knit-heavy collection of last season, this time around Charlotte Ronson turned her eye back in time to about a decade or so earlier. But despite the preponderance of 70s bohemian references, she stuck to the New York code of head-to-toe black, punctuated occasionally with a streak of silken cornflower blue and burnt sienna. It’s beginning to be that time where skinny pants and tough motorcycle jackets are feeling a little banal, and Ronson clearly sensed that, working with an entire new set of shapes for F/W 10. Floor-grazing pleated skirts and long belted jackets felt romantically nomadic, while sheer florals and hip-length blazers added familiarity and wearability. The downright prettiness of the collection, combined with an A-list roster of front row fans including Solange Knowles, Becka Diamond and Whitney Port, makes us pretty sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of these looks next fall.
