The Clothes: Dean Quinn clearly has a peculiar take on the construction of regular garments. His first look, a short, sleeveless dress with a tuxedo shirt was a hint of what was to come. The clothes were simple, easy to look at and to imagine wearing, but each look had a distinct tweak. The colors were muted and his use of deep “V” patterns in subtly different fabrics alluded to the lapel on a man’s tux and gave everything a more sophisticated feel.
The Hair & Makeup: Simple was the name of the game. The models wore their hair tucked behind their ears and parted in the center. Although it was simple, it was sexy. Some red lipstick and hints of silver near their eyes finished the look.
The Soundtrack: Too noisy to hear, though I imagine it would be really smart music to accompany the smart clothes.
The Vibe: Clean and pristine.
The Front Row: The standard Saturday night Milk crowd.
Celebrity We’d Most Like to See Wearing this Collection: Gwyneth Paltrow–the clothes are made for her.
WTF Moment: After the presentation closed, we spotted a little boy in lederhosen busting a move in front of the models.
