‘s Spring/Summer ’09 show at the New York Public Library was a classic combo of stylishly chic and comfy cozy. The way in which Stuart combines and layers fabrics makes every piece more interesting than the next-especially in it’s setting at a timeless Manhattan landmark. I can confidently say that there were no "misses" of the afternoon show, despite the ubiquitous presence of the dreaded legging (
an impressive step for someone who thinks that grey leggings are not even meant for 100-pound Bikram yoga instructors). The most amazing pieces displayed Stuart’s smart tailoring and keenness of cut, like the awe-inspiring metallic shift with a sweetheart neckline or free-flowing white ruffle dress. The collection at large, however, inspired a much more laid-back, romantic approach to spring that I can’t wait to slip into come May-minus the leggings, of course.
