Zaldy Turns It Out
Zaldy makes the kind of clothes that automatically turn you into an "it" girl. Even It model Karen Ellson walked his show, which made Byron very, very sad that he didn't listen to my advice & get his fine self downtown for the show.
The hand-knit marino wool cardigan with bright, grandma-approved splashes of color and matching leggings over heels - yummy. And for any Rock Punk girl with a jones for something more uptown: the blue wool trousers and matching chiffon blouse with oddly looped placket is the way to rock menswear. A bright blue wrap evoked Peruvian chic (except for the dangly silver trim) and the floor-length wool jersey and velvet "oops" gown was anything but.
Color palette: greens (emerald to forest), teal, yellow, pumpkin, and some metallics (gold & bronze). Shoes had an interesting detail with a leather "spat" that had the same feel as if you put a bandanna around your shoe and tied it in front. A bronze earpiece that traced the perimeter of the ear was a fun earring substitute.
The standout: a green wool jersey and lame mini "suspension" dress with gathers and sexy chains in all the right places.
We love Zaldy. Period.
