Recap: Study NY by Tara St James Fall 2011

       The presentation held by Tara St James during Fashion Week in Standard Hotel displayed a collection that had subtle earthy tones which were complimented by the abstract jewelry. From the blatant feminine cuts, we see an opposite masculine-tomboy-ish look, with the oversized blazers, cocoon-shaped jackets, and loose trousers. The asymmetrical wool jackets came in different bold dark tones and earthy hues. 

       The necklines has a sequel of different cuts- some displayed a conservative look while the rest had lower cuts that exemplified more of a flirty vibe. Besides the necklines seen in dresses and shirts, the collars also differed from the common symmetrical view. Some are buttoned down from the side and of the shoulder while the rest displays yet again an oversized cut which flowed smoothly down accentuating the beauty of the jacket. 

        The overall styling was another element that gave all the models a "slouched" appearance. The hair was polished parting to the side which were nicely held by thin headbands. As one takes a closer look at the jewelry, one might discover that the metallic pieces were somehow minimal yet bold in a way that the shape were slightly curved in different forms. When I kept circling around the models, I noticed that none of them were wearing heels. Instead they were standing comfortably in their Bass oxford shoes- this mixed well with every look, even the floor length dress!
