What would a New York "Bright Young Things" wear if her life consisted of fabulous museum parties and art galleries openings? This is the inspiration that Parsons-trained Salvador Trinidad worked with for his Fall 2008 collection. A young collection that exudes elegance and modernity, Trinidad re-created outfits for a girl that shows a sharp sense of refinement and ease.
The base of his color palette lies within his use of neutral gray wool twills, soft champagne and burgundy silk charmeuse this season, with the occasional gold jacquards peeking out from pencil skirts.
Trinidad's shapes are streamlined and lady-like. His play on mixing different textures of fabric -- such as mixing jacquards with delicate silk crepe, or doing a wool/mohair/silk car coat with tweed high-waisted pencil skirt -- defines a sense of playfulness and modernity.
This is a collection not for the downtown girl, but for the uptown girl with a downtown-ease at heart. -- Edith Moy
