Back in fine form (literally) the master tailor who has wowed Hollywood with his amazing suits and drop- dead Red Carpet evening clothes, showed at the Tents this season (rather than the West Village studio that had become his signature venue). The line-up was divided into two parts- his Couture line and a collaboration of men’s and women’s uniforms for Delta Airlines. Let’s put it this way, stewards and stewardesses have never looked this good, nor have any airline employees I’ve recently seen.

What was interesting was that while there certainly were some beautiful evening gowns (among them, a silver organza strapless tiered petal dress, a petal peach silk organza gown, a silk tulle hand pleated goddess gown), it was clearly the day clothes that shined (and mainly those pieces rendered in the darkest of navy blues). Standouts included the midnight blue wool double breasted sweater pleated pant, white stretch cotton shirt with red contrast trim; a midnight blue stretch wool short double breasted jacket with red ribbon detail shown with a matching slightly a-lined skirt and white stretch cotton short sleeved shirt with red contrast trim; a midnight blue abbreviated peacoat with red ribbon detail paired with matching stretch trousers and another one of his crisp white stretch cotton shirts also boasting the red trim. And the group of red taffeta wrap shirtdresses treated for water and stain proofing (perfect for those stewardesses giving out lunch, dinner, or tea), not only look good but promise to be highly practical to boot.
