Angel Devil is already a highly sought line in Europe and on September 6th the line staged its New York Fashion Week premiere at Bryant Park Grill. Angel Devil was originally conceived by Italian designer Riccardo Fusiello. Carmine Di Sarno was brought on as the co-designer for the most recent collection. Angel Devil's New York Fashion week debut event was certainly the place to be; it was attended by Anne Hathaway of The Devil Wears Prada and Becoming Jane (see our interview with Anne Hathaway) and Patricia Field, the stylist for Sex and the City.

The Bryant Park Grill was drenched in a sea of bold red hues that simply oozed sensuality. Every detail in this show stopping venue was impressive and the line personified two distinct personality traits; a little bit nice and a whole lot of naughty.

Models walked in scantily clad pieces that were hot hot hot. Corset inspired tops, sequins, and tons of sparkle electrified the runway. Top hats and riding sticks played an important part of the collection; these provocative accessories lulled the crowd into a blissful state of seduction. Oversized bags, zebra prints, and rivets screamed look-at-me. Toward the end of the collection, the line took on a slightly 1980’s feel with metallics and buckled belts. The piece de résistance was the gold mini dress with the asymmetrical wing detail that drew gasps from the crowd. This gorgeous garment lit up the runway, and it literally glowed as it floated on the catwalk.

Angel Devil was edgy, daring, and sexy. It was refreshing to see a line that mixed playful clothing with a sophisticated sensibility. The fashion flowed well, and the smoldering venue defined the collection.
