Isaac Mizrahi brings his spring collection to Saks Jandel
Isaac Mizrahi, the New York designer and co-star of Bravo's "The Fashion Show: The Ultimate Collection," brought his spring line to Saks Jandel for a Sunday afternoon presentation washed down with mimosas and followed by brunch. The standing room only crowd assembled in support of Sasha Bruce Youthwork, a local organization that helps at-risk kids.
It was a familiar scene, with bold face names and well-shod ladies shopping for a cause, as ten percent of the afternoon's sales benefitted Sasha Bruce. And many of the guests, including the State Department's Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall, who is a former Sasha Bruce board member, had to speed shop. The fashion festivities were competing with the day's Kennedy Center Honors extravaganza and there were celebrities to fete.
Mizrahi's spring collection mixed trompe l'oeil humor with delicate water color prints. Dresses posed as tailored sheaths from the front but transformed into filmy and airy tents in the back. Rear seams of strapless dresses fell open to reveal the sexy corsetry hidden below. The result is a collection of frocks that greet the eye with a prim "hello" but offer up a wink and kiss "goodbye."
