Minimalism for Modernism

You surely remember gorgeous costumes Narciso Rodriguez designed for New York City ballet (if not, read more HERE). It was a project he really enjoyed, that was implemented earlier this year. At the same time, the designer was working on his pre-fall collection, filled with nude, gentle details- minimal as usual.

Rodriguez focused on graphic themes, angles and shapes “that are fluid and quite sensuous,” emphasizing those points in a fantastic look book, shot by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, which captured the graceful strength of an evening top, short in the front, longer in the back, over pants, cutout jumpsuits and a slim gown with a scarf detail.

Credit for his ongoing success must go to his consistency. All around him fashion can go mad for the bohemian ’70s or grunge ’90s or whatever else is coming down the pike, but Rodriguez stays true to his customer: a high-powered woman who has to look sharp from sunup until well past sundown, and rarely has time for a wardrobe change.

Enjoy these 12 looks you’ll definitely rush to put on your wishlist for Santa.
