First Look: GAR-DE FW 2010

Last night we made an unexpected stop during our NYFW adventures that got us splashed by cars, snow pellets whipping our faces, trying to avoid giant slush puddles and inadvertantly stepping in them! We ran into our friend, the lovely Deanne of Dream Sequins, and ended up joining her at Gen Art "The New Garde Show and Party". We were pressed for time to get crosstown but we managed to catch the GAR-DE presentation.

GAR-DE is a NYC based design collective that brings together young designers, artists, and producers that was established in 2007. Although the collection was created by a collective, it did not appear at all disjointed but unified in both vision and execution.

It really reflected the way that the New York/urban woman wants to look. Sleek, chic, edgy and effortless. The collection also managed to look both warm and practical too, save for the bare legs, this looks like something you could wear into a blizzard and still stay toasty thanks to the layered effects and shaggy fur vests. The muted color palate was sophisticated and simple. Perhaps I shouldn't say this but I could totally picture MK Olsen rocking these looks! What can I say except real-world aspirational. I wouldn't mind adding these pieces to my closet today! Can't wait to see more of GAR-DE in the future.
