REVIEW: COSTELLO TAGLIAPIETRA
Today, Costello and Tagliapietra, New York Fashion Week’s most famous husbears developed their signature notes that are gradually winning them ground on reaching editor and buyers checklists during fashion week.
Sure, the runway wasn’t witness to any of the wacky, arty fashion moments that kids will want to post on Tumblr but instead Costello and Tagliapietra stuck to keeping their not inconsequential customer base happy. Remember, this is a formula that Uniqlo thought successful enough to want to replicate via a Costello and Tagliapietra designed capsule collection back in 2011.
The collection featured the eco-friendly air dying print technique that they’ve perfected these last few seasons and gathered shoulders and necklines. Highlights were probably the wrap dresses in an up-to date coral color palette including lunar blue, palest violet and rose quartz.
Backstage the boys put their success down to having designed for private clientele for a decade before starting their own label. That and their belief in designing for everyone because 20 year olds aren’t the only girls that buy dresses. Suits them, works for us.
