Kimberley Newport-Mimran’s Pink Tartan Fall/Winter 2010 show opened with an electric violinist, which come to think of it Andy Thê-Anh did much better with Dr. Draw’s energetic show back in 2008. The show itself featured a bevy of skinny models, clad in aviator style hats, and wearing Alexander Wang-esque side braids, with lots of fur detailing. One thing that really confused me about Pink Tartan’s collection is the harness-like furry wings attached to a few of the models. Were those supposed to be some sort of backwarmers? I don’t get it and I don’t love it.
One thing I did love, however, were the furry skirts. I know that it might be a controversial choice, given that most people I spoke to hated those things with a passion. But to me, they worked. Although a woman with curves might have a problem pulling one of those off. In general, I felt like I’ve seen most things shown at Pink Tartan before, and felt that the styling didn’t have to be borrowed from another designer, but as always, the detailing was noteworthy, and the leather dresses/jackets were covetable.
