Mercedes Benz Fashion Week
The Tents at Bryant Park
February 17, 2009
It was a fur lovers
paradise at the Dennis Basso Fall '09 show. The
collection was filled with sophisticated classics
with a modern edge. The coats were spectacular and
were surprisingly wearable. It was easy to see how
amazing they would be paired with a gown or a pair
of jeans. What was even more appealing was that
the collection was fit for various ages. It wouldn't
make a twenty something look as though she's playing
dress up in her grandmother's closet or make mom
look as though she's trying to recapture her youth.
While the dresses were kind of blah, the cigarette
pants with their piping detail were not to be missed
and the pockets added just the right amount of cool.
Fur hats, statement belts and biker gloves finished
off the looks perfectly.
