It was an early morning show for Michael Angel, who officially opened the season at Bryant Park. Journalists, buyers and the other lot of fashion folk woke wearily and sauntered in to the venue. Little did they know they’d be fully awakened by the second look. It seemed Angel honed the 70’s with strapless dresses, that seemed to have built-in fans as models slinked down the catwalk. An immediate image of a young Bianca Jagger came to mind. The prints for the collection had a Georgia O’Keefe-like quality with the strong colors— yellows, blues, grays, blacks— and light contouring. Metallics in mostly silver also played a major part in the collection giving it a slight edge for spring. The only deal breaker was the blue metallic shorts. They which could have been fun and interesting, however the Bermuda tailoring made them appear boxy and old-fashioned. Overall while it wasn’t a jaw-dropping collection, it certainly had several strong points and a beautiful take on what spring is all about: easy and breezy.
