The design duo Ken Kaufman and Isaac Franco, together at Valentino, Ungaro and Anne Klein before founding their own company, took the crowd Monday night on a peekaboo cut and broad colour journey at the Lincoln Center tents.
Bright whites in sheers on a stark white catwalk became folds of subtle bone in dresses, followed by a bit of burlap and sand before full glitz in gold: a short-sleeve gown with a plunging neckline and covered in sequins, a mini-length version with a halter neck and a less embellished, long-sleeve body skimmer in a floral design.
Oh, and some dark black and fiery red in between, including a strapless black party dress with a barely there lace design up top and a loose, flowing halter-neck gown in the red — with convenient pockets.
The two have dressed Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, Halle Berry and Beyonce for red carpets. Wonder if they'd also need one of the new mesh-backed trenches or girly shorts in real life.
