Greta Constantine Spring 2011
International supermodel Coco Rocha (and longtime Greta booster) opened the Greta Constantine show last week, stomping it out in a flowing swoosh of a gown: typical Greta, and totally gorge.
Word on the street was that the boys wanted to step out of their famed jersey comfort zone and try on a few new fabrics: this time out, I spotted some rich linens and sheer chiffons, but also some more rough-and-tumble macho cuts that took their femme creations to a new level.
(Ezra Constantine, the menswear line, made an all-too-brief appearance, but I would have liked to see more of the leather-pocketed trousers and ninja-style hoodies.)
The clothes had a sexy nonchalance to them--an effortless, Lauren-Hutton-on-safari-in-the-seventies chic, if you will--that I dug. While the designers are known for their magnificent draping, there was even more fabric this season, flowing everywhere, from tanks and trousers to their Grecian-inspired gowns of old.
The show ended with a parade of these luscious, elegant dresses, gathered in all the right places and swishing this way and that in the playful models' hands.
That's the magical thing about Greta Constantine : they make it all look so easy...
