Tony Cohen Catwalk Fashion Show FW2011
Tony Cohen usually shows his collections in New York. Not this season; as his show was part of the Amsterdam Fashion Week. He did bring some international allure to Amsterdam though; he hired topmodel Kim Noorda to open the show.
His collection was inspired by classic sixties couture and did indeed appear very luxurious. Tony used rich materials like silk, poly crepe and chiffon, mixed with typical winter fabrics like wool, cashmere and lambskin.
The tops and dresses all were very richly embroidered and looked very shiny. Tony also used a lot of draping and pleating in his designs. Therefore the designs didn’t look very tight.
As one of the few designers this week Tony Cohen showed some very good winter designs. Especially his coats (a black wool kimono, a nude lambskin, a pleated overcoat) looked warm and comfy.
The jewelry could have been a little more subtle, but altogether the collection looked lovely.
