Malandrino Fall/Winter 2010: "KHAN"

Malandrino Fall/Winter 2010: "KHAN"

Malandrino Fall/Winter 2010: "KHAN" New York Fashion Week | February 14, 2010

For Malandrino Fall/Winter 2010, Catherine Malandrino began with a vision of the earth as seen from above-its constantly changing and varied landscape became an abstraction of contrasting color and texture that informed her core aesthetic.

Once viewed from this new perspective, it became natural that the woman who inhabits this world must simultaneously embody strength, ease and raw femininity.

The juxtaposition of rugged fabrications alongside fluid and sensual draping defines a silhouette that is at once powerful and primal.

Coats and vests come in kidassia goat hair, shearling and fox fur, evoking a wild and untamed sensibility that plays against their cocoon-like construction. These animal skins wrap effortlessly to envelop the body, creating a feeling of comfort and protection.

Distressed leather, wool bouclé, bronze metallic lace and insert of trapunto embroidery serve to balance the collection and to promote a sense of harmony within the natural world. This fundamental connection with the environment is echoed in the color palette of deep mineral tones such as indigo and rust, hand-brushed prints and rich blacks and taupe.

To complete the silhouette, the shoes and accessories also trace the work of hand-craftmanship and untamed beauty.

Shoes with horn-shaped toes and distressed leather appear almost hoof-like. Bell necklaces and earrings are twisted in rope-like silver.

Cuffs fuse metal with stone clusters to create a sense of raw embellishment.
