Malan Breton is a most romantic designer and this year he took his visionary inspiration from (quoted from the press release):"the captivating dichotomies of the characters played by Catherine Deneuve in her early careers in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Belle de Jour.)

The line was created from natural fibers such as silk and wool and had a perfect-for-a-well-bred socialite vibe. The colors were classics: black, cream, sapphire, "cloud" green and ruby red. Malan has recently expanded his line to include some sharp looking (and roomy) handbags.

Malan Breton's designs would look stunning on Hollywood stars such as indie favorite Martha Plimpton (who was in the audience) and Michelle Williams (who has a knack for wearing classic clothing with a contemporary flair).

Malan's Fall of 2008 (held on February 6, 2008) was his first foray into the tents and the audience was filled with raving Malan fans who were thrilled to see him there. Malan's journey from auffed Project Runway contestant to his triumphant showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is a story that has touched many. While I was waiting for the show to start, everyone I spoke with said the same thing: "I adore Malan." Ditto.
