| Miss Sixty Fall/Winter 2009 collection plunges into the ‘80s. The show in the Tent at Bryant Park, New York, was a huge success!
The collection is the pop/punk style answer to the desire for freedom, joy and self expression. Tough, bold, and edgy but still hyper-feminine, denim is the protagonist of the collection. This season offers an array of washes on silhouettes ranging from shirts to jackets to dresses and one-pieces. It provides an alluring contrast to fabrics such as rubberized lace, silk devoré for evening dresses, and cotton printed with trompe l’oeil graphics. For Fall/Winter 2009 Miss Sixty ushers in the birth of a new dimension in denim.
The look of the collection references the strikingly raw, unbridled beauty of the photographs by Richard Avedon in the ’80s. Built-up silhouettes, fitted waistlines, wide and shaped shoulders, minis which are truly mini: a biker soul underlined by the use of leather and studs in gold, bronze, and silver. The color palette is dark and black, cut by the energy of electric blue, violet, fuchsia, and orange.
Pieces with varying volumes are mixed-and-matched to create outfits with refined and elegant structure and silhouette.
A fabric explosion is created by pieces done in a colorful print inspired by the art of Roy Lichtenstein. A flash of cosmopolitan glamour is shown in another bright print, this time created from a collage of covers of glossy international magazines. The print becomes a mirror on which fashion is reflected; it appears on stretch jersey tops, day dresses, and even a colorful, short evening dress with a deep neckline and strong ‘80s-style sleeves.
Miss Sixty’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection is all about a bold mixing of elegant sensuality, balanced excess, and the return of hyper-feminine ‘80s style.
