Mario Moya Fall 2010 Collection




I got a chance to help out at the Mario Moya show, and I really loved his collection for the fall. The pieces were ultra-feminine and classic silhouettes with sexy accents. It was all film-noir Hollywood glamour, mixed with the definitive Parisian timelessness: perfect coiffures, rouged lips, winged eyeliner. Seeing the collection, I really felt that Moya was tapping into a romantic narrative without endangering his work by getting too costume-y.

I really enjoyed his Noir Powernet Monroe Dress. Moya works well with sheer accents; he knows how to use them to seduce subtly. The Noir Chiffon Femme Fatale Blouse with the Noir Wool Diamond Skirt was another personal favorite - the exposed back really sold me. It had a really great cut, and it looked stunning on the model. I think both this and the Citron Apocalypse Gown with the Citron Blaze Cape would photograph beautifully, and they would make really interesting editorial pieces.
