Modern, clean, simple but interesting; that’s Narcisco Rodriguez for upcoming spring/summer. The designer introduced the “half-skirt”, which had indeed (slightly) more body than the mini and sounds more sophisticated too. Furthermore the collection was a celebration of perfect cuts and simplicity. Yet while his designs might have looked simple, Rodriguez’ construction was anything but that. Shift dresses, skirts and sheer tops were composed of lots of different geometric pieces sown together. This giving the designs an extra graphic/architectural layer as well as the option of having multiple textures and prints in one single piece. Yet no matter how complicated that blending process might have been in the workroom, on the runway the fabrics seemed to have just melted right into each other, resulting in show stopping yet sober creations. Towards the end Rodriguez even introduced, what he referred to as ‘a new kind of lace’; detailed, silver shaded, lacy, floral printed fabrics bonded to the silk background of a few slip dresses. The result? A minimalistic viagra buy india success collection, created with the maximum amount of precision and passion.

It was well balanced collection of Narciso Rodriguez with spare silhouettes, exquisite cuts and colorful graphics that were in control.

Rodriguez used his fall collection, which featured collaging techniques, as a starting point for spring. This time he furthered his play on construction. Rodriguez also ventured into surface embellishments.  There were laminated wood paillettes, which he applied, in one case, in an abstract motif on a teal and moss dress. He also added colorful floral embroidery on several chic tops. The texture added a  new dimension to Rodriguez’s work. So were his final two languid white slipdresses that were almost transparent were it not for their big fuchsia and magenta color blocks.

Narciso Rodriguez’s inspiration came from artist Kim Joon, whose large-scale, swirl-heavy tattoos make for fascinating and ponderous art. Rodriguez used it in a refined way. The result was an impressive collection that looked different in the midst of this print-heavy season.

Rodriguez opened with a black top over white pants, simple but powerful. He then increased the intensity of geometry, stripes, bands and squares going this way and that. Hard lines and gentle curves, black, white, sand and lovely water-colors.  When he went for pattern, it was subtle.

The collection of Narciso Rodriguez was pure Rodriguez: smart, chic and architectural.
The lineup was rather refreshing. His focus was tight on all things geometric, structured and clean, and his clothes offered a great alternative to all the reworked and revamped sportswear seen thus far. Rodriguez’s show opener was a long black vest — a wide stripe of gray down the front, followed by a canvas dress, very graphic in its simple big block patterns. And so it went — almost every garment, whether coats, dresses or  pants, was precisely patchworked with bold squares, rectangles and trapezoids.
Rodriguez let loose with breezy silk dresses that added some edge to the collection. As for the palette, he kept things fairly minimal: neutrals, blacks and silvers, with the occasional shot of deep red and coral.

Narciso Rodriguez did minimalism way before the young American designers discovered it, the ones who showed their simple collections this week in New York. Rodriguez knows how to make a simple, pretty and easy dress – it made him famous.

The designer went back to his heydays in the nineties, looked at old pictures of celebs wearing his dresses and decided to leave out all the noise again and focus at strong tailoring and simple tea-dresses. Collarless coats were thrown over silk tank dresses, dresses were cut on the bias and colors were dark and blushy.

You see, minimalism can be very romantic and feminine too,
