Narciso Rodriguez let his signature codes — sleek, a-symmetric cuts and architectural details — rule his fall winter collection. The collection was full of good, studied clothes, grounded in controlled silhouettes, which packed commercial appeal and were a bit on the safe side.

Sleek but sturdy outerwear, much of it reversible, was the message for the day. A parka,  a thick, shearling jacket with a wrap funnel collar  felt protective. Rodriguez’s razor-like cut-outs, slashed across the shoulder, or a sliver down the chest, came into play on glossy silk dresses for the evening.

Narciso Rodriguez embraced his softer side for spring summer 2010. And it made for a stronger collection. The vibe was still plenty sexy, like the killer sheath color-blocked from jute linen canvas and black silk jacquard.  A pair of shifts, one in white, the other pink, came with graphic cutouts on the upper back, while another dress was essentially a mesh tank with strategically placed ovals of printed fuchsia silk. All three were revealing without being vulgar, a balance other designers have had some difficulty achieving this season.

But Rodriguez also loosened up the silhouette dramatically, letting the air in, so to speak, on everything from a white silk, linen, and organza bubble dress to a silk mud-cloth coat. The show ended with a trio of short-in-front, long-in-back tent dresses that took this concept to the extreme. Chic, modern propositions for a black-tie evening, they billowed dramatically behind the models in the runway breeze.
