NYFW: Sophie Théallet ~ February 16, 2010

Sure, her AW 2010 line may not look 'wintery' enough but boy, this lady is fantastic at her 'bohemian luxe'.  I'm loving EVERY piece in her first collection since winning that coveted CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund--$200,000. 
What can we expect from someone who worked with greats like Jean Paul Gaultier and Azzedine Alaïa?

Some hits from the line:

What we didn't like?  VELVET!  Yuckers.  What's the deal with all-over velvet this season?  Zac Posen did (terrible) red velvet in his show, too.  Are we missing something?

Velvet will always be a fashion faux pas.  It's just not flattering.  Plus, reminds us of Christmas during the late 80's, early 90's--a velvet explosion!  ugh.

My prom dress was green velvet & taffetta.  Yes we all have had our fashion disasters--stop judging!

LOVING those slouchy little suede boots, though.  Glad that 80's look is still hot for AW 2010.

  1. Wow, Sheri. You really do have exquisite taste. I love every dress up there, bar the velvet. Today's velvet, tomorrow's curtains - is all I have to say about velvet. Thank you for sharing this collection. I always learn something new about fashion on your blog.

  2. Thanks for stopping in! Glad I can help fuel any raging fashionista in you.
