Family Ties (and Prints) of Daisy Darche

It’s a family affair at Daisy Darche.

Malan Breton Got a Well-Deserved Standing Ovation at his Fall/Winter 2011 Show

To say the Malan Breton fall/winter 2011 collection is exquisite is almost an understatement. Luxurious fabrics were used to create the impeccably  designed and utterly beautiful “Kyoto Wonderland.” And a wonderland it certainly was with a combined runway show, theatrical performance and live Chinese drummers. Women wore silk kimonos, duck feather skirts and wide-leg trousers in wool and sequins. Men clad in silk wool suits, beautifully knit sweaters and extra large bow ties looked classic and gentlemanly. Viewers loved the presentation, applauding multiple times throughout the course of the show. Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen from Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of New York City were attentive and energetic front-row spectators. The entire audience rose to its feet for a standing ovation at the end of a spectacular show. Click through to see a video of the finale walk after the jump.
