For Fall 2013, Catherine Malandrino presents graphic shapes inspired by Art Deco elegance and style of French designer Ruhlmann.
The glamourous collection titled "L E N O R M A N D I E", includes elongated silhouette seen on funnel neck collar coats, mid calf pencil skirts and long, lean dresses.
Tones of absinthe, burgundy and midnight blue create a warm color palette. Fabrics include leather, cashmere knit, rubberized wool and double silk satin crepe. My favorites include the black wool guipure bustier with fitted pant, drapey quilted coat, embroidered leather and black velvet embroidered nude tulle pieces.
