UPPER CRUST: Another long-legged aristocrat has emerged on the fashion scene. Georgina Cavendish, who like her blue-blooded cousin Stella Tennant is a member of the Duke of Devonshire's brood, made her runway debut at Lloyd Klein's show yesterday at the Puck Building. Klein, who knew Cavendish's mother Liliana when she was a legendary beauty, snatched up the schoolgirl-aged Georgina for his show.
It's all about the suit; gender role-plays; androgyny as the norm; tuxedos as dresses; menswear textiles for women and womens fabrics suit the men; jersey draped blouses worn unflinchingly by men; extraordinary super hero trenches worn equally by men as by women some with sweeping train some as dandy hero capelettes; bankers stripes and solids are sober at the base and serious in their structure playfuylly interrupted with bursts of color; and introducing color blocked power ties that are sometimes matched with superhero capes for editorial.
menswear fabrics with devastatingly feminine results navy, black and grey; extreme bold flouresent pinks and reddish burnt orange run the gamut to blush; sometimes the colors are semi-hidden and only peaking out as threads frayed at the cuff and sometimes noticeable enough to steal the attention; found super large in the lining; grey and pink masculine power pinstripes that reveal glimpses unexpected ultra shock color threads layered with purpose to create an intentional tailored raw cut; loose threads or shock therapy?
