Ports 1961 Fall/Winter 2010 Collection
Though the mood was noticeable somber because of the untimely death of Alexander McQueen, which left many fashionistas (including myself) devastated, the tents were still buzzing with activity. We spotted Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo, from The City, sitting pretty in the front row. After a moment of silence to honor Alexander McQueen the show began.
The Ports 1961 Fall 2010 collection is brilliant example of aviation attire completely revamped in an innovative, fashionable and dare-I say it chic collection for the woman on the go. Though, the Fall collection is vastly different from then the Summer 2010 collection which explored “beauty and nature,” this collection expands on this concept. The Fall collection also conceived by designer Tia Cibani who “ventures into a realm that is rooted in the past yet reaches for the future,” described the program notes. Ms. Cibani, so exquisitely executes her vision with well tailored and structured pieces that are absolutely to die for and “totes” gorgeous.
Gone are the prints and free flowing dresses and replaced with jewel tones, tweeds, sculptural dresses and metallic pieces . We loved the wonderful structure of the harem pants as they are unlike any we saw this season. Additionally, the accessories with ceramic necklaces, epaulette collars, hats left us in fear of our wallet and showed true design ingenuity.
The collection was a cohesive collection of beautiful and aviation inspired duds that are surprisingly unique. We have a feeling if Amelia Earhart were alive today she would surely rock this collection.
