Tony Cohen Fall 2010

Where & When: Sunday, February 14 at 5 p.m., the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Draped dresses are a dime a dozen on the New York runways; it seems nearly every designer has one (or more). They're popular because they sell well, and they sell well because they're flattering on women of all shapes and sizes. Not to mention they can be quite beautiful when done well. Tony Cohen sent out quite an impressive series of draped frocks on Sunday, and they were by far the best I've seen this week. They came in mostly black wool jersey and gray silk, with some cream and bordeaux mixed in; the most interesting iterations had one long sleeve and were worn with a single leather glove on the opposite arm. For variety, some tough leather jackets and comfy-chic wrap coats were thrown in for layering purposes, and while all looked delectable (especially the buttery lambskin coats), the dresses were truly the stars of the show.
Standout Look: Maxi skirts and dresses have been quietly creeping onto designers' runways, and so I was quite happy to see the series of longer styles that closed out this show. I thought this dress had such a moody, dreamy print and a graceful fluidity, and the asymmetrical wool bouclé coat was draped just as beautifully as the dresses.
Bonus Points: Black rose petals were scattered along the runway, setting a Goth-romantic mood for this Valentine's Day show. Plus: a great gift bag stocked with Napoleon Perdis cosmetics.
