RUNWAY: Frank Tell Fall/Winter 2010
Feb 15, 2010 - by Marcus Holmlund
Looking to Franks pre-fall pieces and his most recent collection revealed on Friday evening, Tell has officially tapped into exactly what his good-looking-bad-girl demographic wants. He knows they desire wearable daily items that can easily be done up to become a showstopping outfit for the evening. As if he had a checklist for each collection, this seasons list included: Croc-stamped lambskins and suedes, funnel necked silhouettes accentuating the skinny, dangling buckles, perfectly placed grommets, and a slew of heftily wrangled knits. The mod-mindset he spoke of in his designer statement appeared in his palette of baby blues, tans and nudes, and an especially ashy slate gray. One of the highlights this season was undoubtedly Tells choice of male model Martin Cohn who walked second down the runway. Others included his Star Trek-inspired wedges courtesy of Raphael Young and jewelery picks by Pamela Love. Overall, the tribal-future fest was a perfect concoction of toned-down eccentricities fit for the downtown-via-uptown sets. Find more pics here.
