With the ethereal romanticism we came to expect of Leanne Marshall on Project Runway, the designer presented her Fall 2010 Collection with the stunning attention to detail that made her a fan favorite. While her designs are very wearable and current, the folds and shapes Marshall crafts into her architectural accents evoke an artistry not seen very often in modern fashion. It feels truly special to view her collection up close and in person.
A color palette of soft ivory, black and rich jewel-tone teal and gray was rendered in satins, knits and wools that look luxe, expensive and decadent for the wearer. A variety of pieces from skirts and sweaters to coats and dresses shows Marshall’s eye towards the consumer, and an awareness that her arty aesthetic could seem museum quality and less than wearable if approached the wrong way. But Marshall’s approach is completely right. A beautiful collection.
