Frank Tell Fashion Show Fall 2010 NY Fashion Week
Runway Review: It’s a wild and woolly ride on 3D knits that has a well-studied reserve and articulation
Set amongst a Dan Flavin inspired assortment of neon lights, Frank Tell’s recent presentation at Milk Studios was rife with a futuristic simplicity that was appropriately less urban warrior and definitively more wearable.
What’s remarkable about Tell is the fact that he can work with essentially trendier elements, voluminous yetti knits, sarouel pants, grommets and leather minis, without ever seeming like an over-zealous downtown crowd pleaser or trend chaser, everything has a well-studied reserve and articulation.
Here icey blue patch worked yetti knits, grommet edged suiting and generous leather neck pieces stood out amongst the collections overall clean spirit. –Naveed Hussain, VagabondNYC
