Isaac Mizrahi Fall 2009 Collection
This is a wildly uneven collection. It’s like bipolarism in clothing form. There’s a lot here that we really like but there’s also a lot that just goes plain wrong. We love the colors and the use of plaids and we love the jackets and coats and shimmery metallic pieces. The hats are just plain silly and some of those more haphazard-looking pieces are looking a bit “homeless chic” to us. Still, one thing that always comes through with his work is his clear love of clothing and what he can do with it. Despite the uneven quality of the collection, there’s probably something here for almost every woman. Maybe that’s why it’s so uneven.
