Fall 2010 : Kimberly Ovitz

February 12, 2010

I love it when a designer takes an architectural route in their collection, it blurs the line even further between what is art and what is fashion. Kimberly Ovitz did just that in her Fall 2010 collection. Focusing on asymetry and draping, Ovitz challenged the standard shapes of apparel by adding length where there shouldn’t be length, drapes where you don’t normally see drapes, and texture in a place you would least expect it. Surprisingly, within all of her avant garde designs,the looks didn’t feel over the top or like they was trying to hard. In fact, I think she may have solved the trend dilemma of tucking part of a shirt into pants and having it stay there.

Ovitz took classic designs and reworked them in an earthy palette and in fabrics that appeared lightweight but felt warm and cozy. As a whole, the collection felt like the epitome of ready-to-wear, I honestly could pull a look right off the model and be entirely content with my outfit. A rarity in Fashion Week if you ask me.
