New York Fashion Week: Nanette Lepore goes galactic
Posted February 13, 2013
Nanette Lepore is feeling spaced out.
"My collection was inspired by the mission to Mars," she says. "I have more darks than I usually do for fall. We have hologram shoes. Puffer coats that feel very sturdy and practical with galactic high heels. I have lots of new textures and fabrics."
Indeed, her offerings were cosmic, featuring cool, shimmery fabrics and striking footwear.
But most of all, her clothes were, as ever, wearable. Lepore's creations fit all body types, and are appropriate for all age groups, from Christy Turlington to Nikki Reed to Emma Roberts.
And that's why to us, her standout pieces were an impeccably tailored black suit, and what could be the world's most perfect little black dress.
Lepore, ever the proud mama, was particularly focused on another aspect of her line: "We're launching our first full handbag and shoe collection," she announced.
