NY Fashion Week Fall '08. Tony Cohen: NoDressCode – Always Appropriate.







Summary: Tony Cohen‘s Fall ’08 collection was filled with "I’d wear that" dresses, jackets, and separates. The models looked so comfortable in these easy going pieces, which included a slew of little black dresses, and a "little black skirt" that would be perfect for many occasions. The ruffled leather jackets and coat were standouts. The butterfly winging and draping on some of the dresses seemed a bit overdone, yet stopped just short of becoming tacky. All of the pieces were soft, cool, had unusual twists and a lot of movement. The "NoDressCode" label now makes sense, as any of these piece would be appropriate and very tasteful almost everywhere.
