EAST VILLAGE HOMAGE
New York: Kicking off New York Fashion week, Organic by John Patrick stayed true to the city with a collection he called “Ode to the icons of the East Village”. “Back then,” says the designer in the show notes, “to catch a glimpse of Patti Astor was like spotting Greta Garbo.” Outerwear was a focus and there were a variety of oversized boxy shapes in sustainable fabrics ranging from plush “teddy” fur to smooth nylons. Midi-length pencil skirt sweater-sets were given a modern twist with cropped, hand-knitted pullovers. Gently nipped-in waists on bustier slip-dresses and simple sheaths provided a feminine touch for the mostly straight silhouettes. A muted palette of “fawn”, “custom grey” and black was energized by the final looks in shades of “flamingo pink” — a nearly-neon pop of color that conjured Stephen Sprouse’s iconic looks of the era. — Sharon Graubard
