MIAMI ON FIRE
Paris: Molded silhouettes recalled Cristobal Balenciaga and flared trumpet skirts the recent Spring 2011 Prada show, but Corrado de Biase’s Fall 2011 collection was more than the sum of its parts. Ever the multitasker (de Biase also works as a designer for both the John Galliano and Rochas footwear lines), the collection was comprised of pieces that could easily do double duty on the high-low spectrum (mostly thanks to a laid-back skater vibe most readily perceivable in hooded jackets), but that didn’t sacrifice an inch of quality or craftsmanship for it. While some of the looks and detailing were repetitive, de Biase’s fervid melding of street and couture did justice to the collection’s title, “Miami on Fire.”
