New York: Designer Johanna Uurasjarvi of Leifsdottir (who is also the design director of Anthropologie) showed a romantic, Spanish-themed collection at a soiree held at the Prince George Ballroom. The outfits presented were more aggressive than usual for the label, but ladylike and beautiful nonetheless. Black ruffled flamenco skirts and fitted sweater jackets were paired with electric, multicolored floral separates and waist-cinching belts. Polka dots added sass to romantic silhouettes, like a ruched wrap dress and a sheer chiffon blouse. The designer incorporated just the right amount of thematic elements to create a mood yet remain true to the label’s quaint and charming look that resonates with young women. The execution of the flamenco concept was flawless, complete with red lips, black lacy tights, and black floral headpieces adorning the models’ dramatically upswept hair. It was hard to believe that a collection so polished, and presented at such a grand scale without a hitch, is barely two years old.
