Fashion Week: Narciso Rodriguez's "It" Factor for Denver

February 2009

NARCISO RODRIGUEZ FW09 NEW YORK 02-17-09Narciso Rodriguez works a long silhouette in fitted or body-skimming shapes into a military theme for his fall collection. From beautifully tailored coats and jackets to intricately seamed dresses, Rodriguez's minimalist style is always a sophisticated and sleek take on the season's trends.

The Gist: Rodriguez opens with a palette of beige, black, and white in tightly constructed zip-up coats, military jackets, and lean pants. From there, the collection evolves into curvy dresses, lustrous tops, and fitted jackets in graphic prints like a black-and-white camouflage (an interesting fabric combination comes in a balloon-skirted camo-print dress with tulle overlay) and a starry night sky.

The theme is continued with a series of coats and sporty zip-up jackets that are given an armor effect with a shiny, silk panel spliced into the midriff. But Rodriguez lets up just enough on his modern-warrior refrain to introduce brights like yellow, pink, and orchid in sexy, second-skin dresses.

Look for It At: MAX, 3039 E. Third Ave., 303-321-4949
