Iodice mixed color blocking with structure in his
2009 Spring collection. The inspiration was a combination
of the mysteries of Atlantis crossed with both cosmopolitan
socialites and a day at the beach. This Brazilian
designer has always maintained that his clothing
is intended for the sophisticated women of the jetset.
And judging from Iodice's billowy ensembles, this
jetsetter will literally be breezing down Park Avenue
in a well tailored ocean of azure blues and sand
The line showed strong construction;
the simplicity of the pieces was refreshing. Nothing
was overworked, and the collection certainly updated
architectural fashion with soft undercurrents of
femininity. The designer achieved his goal of shrouding
the line in mystery. Indeed, there was something
haunting about the line that demanded further attention.
It was a beautiful combination of strong graphics
with sensual details.
