Geren Ford Fall 2010

Where & When: Wednesday, February 10 from 5-7 p.m., Crosby Street Hotel
Runway Recap: There wasn't a major war in the 1930s, but Geren Ford's fall collection so seamlessly blended that era's recession-glamour bias-cut satin pieces with military-inspired jackets and cargo pants, you'd almost think there was. Ford is known for her silks, and their fluidity was emphasized even more when paired with more structured leather and brocade pieces.
Standout Look: While Ford showed a range of silhouettes, the long, close-to-the-body skirts stood out for me the most. I keep silently praying for the return of the maxi-skirt, and with this glamorous interpretation, I think it has a fighting chance for fall. I like how the peplum cardigan subtly reflects the shape of the skirt too.
Bonus Points: This was my first time in the relatively new Crosby Street Hotel, and I was rather impressed--the interior is colorful and eclectic but homey and welcoming too.
