COPENHAGEN--Susanne Rützou's AW 2010/11 collection, presented last night at Copenhagen City Hall, was pretty: slouchy and sexy with feminine details like ruffles and floral prints. And for the most part, Rützou was just that--pretty--with the exception of one show-stealing gold brocade cocoon coat that pushed the envelope a bit.
She showed loose silk printed blouses paired with tapered pants (which were sometimes sequined and patterned as well) or with pencil skirts in brown tweeds, made more casual when belted with wide studded leather belts. Slinky dresses with dolman sleeves were loosely gathered with drawstrings. For the most part, the palette was pleasing-- blues, royal and navy, were paired with blush-tone and brownish prints--but things got a bit off track towards the end, when dresses came out in vivid reds and turquoises, which cheapened the look. Thank goodness for that cocoon coat--in it the model was like a butterfly in her chrysalis.
