Camilla Staerk is getting some major hype. Moving her label Staerk to New York from London two seasons ago, she has quickly been making a name for herself stateside, and just opened her first store at 182 Mulberry Street. On Sunday evening she presented her line at the Bumble and Bumble studios, where she displayed plenty of the noir themes that she is known for, rendered in a jet black, misty grey, and other moody hues. Leather, as always, played a big role in Staerk's collection, and it seems that each season the designer's touch gets more refined. While Spring '08 featured oversized jumpers lined with row upon row up fringe and sultry leather dresses, Fall '08's leather pieces got more body conscious, featuring a catwoman style leather halter bodysuit. For Spring'09, we find Staerk at her most refined, showing delicate leather tank tops with strings of tiny bead cascading over the curves of an open back, in addition to some of the best leather skirts and dresses being shown on the catwalks.
