Narciso Rodriguez Fall/Winter 2010 RTW
What's the Narciso Rodriguez trademark? Restrained sexual tension, concealment and of course interesting cuts. For Fall 2010, the designer gave us a lot of the latter. Inspired by what he described in rather cerebral terms as "beautiful curved lines and shadows," he sent out dramatic coats and eye-grabbing, short, color-blocked and ombré dresses.
The sexual tension played out in dresses with doubled asymmetrical bodices in contrasting colors, paired with cropped jackets studded with nail heads, exposing flashes of collarbone or rib.
