Go West

I might have had a little too much fun last night at our party for International Playground, so pardon me if I lack a coherent train of thought. One of the highlights of stopping by the Starworks press day last week (other than a quick glimpse of Nicollette) was seeing the new Marios Schwab collection. Although it may not be immediately obvious, I was told that it was partly inspired by cowboys and western attire. The collection contains many of the designer's signature pieces: his sculptural puffer jackets, which we've seen in previous collections, as well as the twisting, fluid draping of a his dresses, which were adorned with gumball-sized Swarovski pearls. As for the western bit, the traditional Schwab silhouettes were additionally adorned with intricately tooled leather bustiers as well as some gun-slinging leather harnesses. All these tough little details perfectly balanced out the otherwise feminine shapes, perfect for the lady who might not be so ladylike afterall.
