Argentine Designers Collective show is spot on

Fun, sophisticated, fresh, a bit bizarre and totally unique were some of my initial reactions to the Argentine designers collective show at Bryant Park this past Thursday. Of the five designers that showed, two really stole the show. First, designer Benito Fernandez's collection was absolutely sublime. A montage of silks, chiffon and feathers, there was not one color that the collection shied away from. A boho/gypsy peasant chic, the designer's portrayal of Argentine culture was flawless and fun. Designer Cardon also stood out from the rest sending beautifully nostalgic traditional Argentine pieces with an updated edge down the runway. Reminiscent of a Ralph Lauren country look with a bit of South American flair, the collection included linen tunics, suede vests, old world leather jackets, and linen pants that told the story of Argentine culture.
