RUNWAY: Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2010

DESIGNER: Isaac Mizrahi

INSPIRATION: Isaac’s so-called, “Central Park Story Book,” was a supernatural society fairy tale inspired by New York city–with Cinderella glass slippers, “The Met Museum Japanese Armor Show” samurais, “Irving Penn Station” bag ladies, and “Avedon meets Avatar” fairies.

TOP LOOKS: A “Geoffrey L.L. Bean” loden quilted blazer and brown “ice lizard” textured skirt; Glittering crystal “diamond crocodile” and “diamond chagrine” mini-shift dresses; A short black coat that grades into the sparkling sky line; Aluminum-like Jiffy Pop parka; Copper molded leather mini-ball gown; Karlie as fairy queen in an iridescent peach bodice and tulle skirt.

ACCESSORIES: Gigantic anorak hoods attached to jackets, or just paired floating with ball gowns. Rock and crystal jewelry, glitter twigs, skyline bracelets, and lion head earrings. Clear molded bags from Italy (that were snatched from customs mere hours before the show). “Glass” ankle boots, amethyst and ruby shoe boots, and winter sandals and flats.

WHO WAS THERE: The front row was like a Bravo reunion episode, with the network’s Andy Cohen, Russell Simmons, and Countess Luann de Lesseps. Veronica Webb was also in attendance along with Jennifer Creel, and Susan Fales-Hill.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Isaac took us on an enchanted jaunt through snowy Central Park (there was snow fall) accompanied by a live jazz-trio. The designer is also a showman and it was a spectacle of unearthly but wearable gorgeous clothes.

He showed divine luxe classic American coats, more playful puffers, ladies-who-lunch in tweed coats and silk dresses, crystal shorts (the new evening look for fall) and cocktail wear so densely encrusted he likened it to crocodile and armor.

And finally, he closed with “Seven Winter Fairies”–the Avatar reference-who wore metallic and tulle confections fit for royalty. Hair and make-up legends, Eugene Souleiman and Val Garland respectively, created a deceptively minimal look for the show, with frizzy almost matted powdery hair and super nude dewy faces. Mizrahi does two things best: American Sportswear and elevated elaborate couture, and this show was a fantastic celebration of both.
