New York Fashion Week Spring ’09. Patricia Field: Sex and the Vampy

September 8, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Spring '09


Summary:  Leave it to Patricia Field to go over-the-top in style. Field’s Spring ’09 show featured lacquered makeup, sky-high stilettos, and waist-cinching studded belts.  In other words, it was dominatrix meets the 2008 Carrie Bradshaw (and not so surprisingly, as Patricia Field was the Sex and the City movie’s costume designer). As a die-hard Sex and the City fan myself, I loved the extra-long single strand of pearls paired with a bright colored shift and, clearly reminiscent of Carrie’s shopping spree at Diane von Furstenberg while on the phone with L.A. based Samantha. However, not all of Field’s looks were hits. The outrageous shoe-printed dress paired a brightly colored headscarf was enough to quell my shoe obsession for…well, at least 24 hours…Needless to say, nothing at a Patricia Field show is meant to be ordinary- mission accomplished.
