Michael Angel Fall 2010

Where & When: Friday, February 12 at noon, the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Australian designer Michael Angel is known for his colorful digital prints, and thus it was a bit unexpected to see the first few looks down the runway--a series of draped dresses and suits in neutral wool and silk crepe. The signature prints turned up eventually, in both second-skin minidresses as well as more voluminous sleeveless styles and sharp-looking peplum jackets. The most successful looks incorporated jackets or vests in metallic laminated lace, which had the effect of spun sugar and created a softer, romantic counterpoint to the sleek, ultramodern printed pieces.
Standout Look: The contrast in textures and sensibilities between this gold lace vest and stretch jersey print dress seems counter-intuitive, but the pieces harmonize in tone and fit, and they pushed Angel's style forward without sacrificing its essence.
Bonus Points: Among the downtowny, fashion-cred audience were bloggers Susie Bubble, Bryanboy, and Julia Frakes, and rock-scions Kelly Osbourne and Sean Lennon were in the front row.
