TSE Fall 2009
Where & When: Thursday, February 12th at 9 a.m., TSE showroom
Runway Recap: Celebrating its 20th year, TSE could've trotted out a greatest-hits collection. Instead, the line took a step forward with complicated--but cozy-looking--layered silhouettes, beginning with cashmere bodysuits and leggings and piled with gorgeously draped skirts, open-front tops and capes; pumpkin and mulberry shades spiced up the mostly cool neutral palette. While probably a bit more body-conscious than what the typical TSE customer is used to, everything was draped or ribbed in such a way as to flatter the body; unexpectedly strong-shouldered jackets provided a nice balance to the softness of the knit pieces.
Standout Look: This look is only two pieces--a scarf and a dress--but it looks like three or four, without being bulky. The extra panel of fabric at the hips disguises a multitude of flaws, and the drape of the scarf at the shoulders balances the lower half. TSE sent several long skirts down the runway, which makes me happy, because long skirts equal warm legs in cold weather.
Bonus Points: I love being fed at fashion shows, so I was quite happy to see the fresh-fruit kebabs and coffee. Granted, I was the only one eating them.
Where to Buy: TSE store at 120 Wooster St. in Soho, and many more locations worldwide at TSEcashmere.com.
