Maggie Barry Co.: An emphasis on the romantic is echoed in each interactive coupling of fabrications and style. Delicate pastels, gilded with silver is descriptive of the baby soft linens as well as the supple leathers used in this concise group of jackets, vests, skirts and shorts. The silhouettes shadow the references of the gentrified Victorian to the baby-doll-like Gibson girl. With linen offering a crisp edge to the bodices, it too, will encompass refinement, ease and comfort. Tux’s and Tails prevail in the jacket area as bubble safari shorts and sculpted pouf skirts hold center stage. Accompanied with the somewhat pomp and circumstance attitude of it all, will be detailed vests of all sexy shapes, cuts and styles. The leather ruffles, lace insets and contrast-in-color stitching details accentuate the haberdashery attitude of a sepia-toned, soft-summer-breeze filled season. For evening, liquid metallic jersey in shimmery pastels flow from starlit spots of rhinestones on short cocktail halter dresses and long, empire mermaidens. “Morning Coffee” slinky and funkadelic jogging suits, make a “don’t mess with me yet” attitude in pretty pastels in easy, billowy separates. Dramatic voile’ jackets, vintage kimono fabric cover-ups and sculpted creations in tulle and chiffon are worn with asymetrically-detailed, leather spliced pants with power-net panels, denim, lacing and
corsette details.
