The first thing that struck me when I saw the Narciso Rodriguez collection was that the color palette - olive, orange, burgundy, chartreuse, charcoal - was particularly lovely (and a welcome relief from the black and white dominating the fall runways). I was also struck by the beauty of interplay between those colors as well as the textures of the various fabrics used in the collection. Rodriguez told WWD that "collaging, collecting, color, film stills, many artists, the film world" were the inspirations for the collection. It's a cerebral approach to fashion that resulted in a pretty great collection. (But I could have done without the mullet skirts that closed the show.) See the complete collection here.
