Successfully merging Parisian flair with New York cool, this are the key words for a malandrino collection.
Malandrino's clothes are intricately cut, colorful bursts of subtle sophistication.
Malandrino stayed true to her crafty core with loads of tactile details for the eye to drink in, including scalloped lace, appliquéd tulle, and quilted leather.
New for Spring, she explored the idea of layering fabric that worked nicely to add an interesting layer of texture.
That said, a fishnet overlay fell flat. The designer is reissuing the flag dress she found fame with a decade ago, but it was another nod to Americana that provided some necessary wit here: a lace-printed silk gown featuring the Statue of Liberty.
Though it's clearly what her clientele responds to, Malandrino's craft parade can easily threaten overload, and it did so here with a backless jeweled top that seemed to be little more than a hunk of embellishment with straps, as well as a gown with a neckline of gob-stopper jewels.
