To the Malandrino PR peeps: There was really no need for all that yelling and stress outside, seeing as how it was a presentation where we could walk around at our own pace. Fash Week brings enough dumb stress on its own...no need to add to it without reason. Once I got inside though, everything got tribal, in a clothing way. There were multiple sets of models in various patterns ranging from striped neutrals to loud purple and embroidered black. I must say that I really liked a number of the pieces that each tableau had to offer, even though I found it all a bit unexpected. And I would like to thank Catherine et al for not using a massive group of really pale, white girls. Seriously. Also, if you guys happen to make a larger version of that purple one shoulder dress, I would be happy to take that off your hands. That is all.

Catherine Malandrino Spring 2014: Poetry and Performance
It was the many years that Catherine Malandrino spent vacationing in Saint Tropez that began as the starting point for her spring 2014 collection, in particular Les Voiles at the start of sailing and yachting season when the harbor fills with boats. “It’s a mood of poetry, but at the same time, because it’s about the sail of Saint Tropez, there’s performance, and this is why I wanted to mix in this collection--poetry and the performance together,” explained Malandrino during the presentation.
