Fashion Week: Costello Tagliapietra

What: separates!! The Brooklyn-based duo now does separates, a departure from their signature draping dresses.

Take away: easy elegance and color blocking dominates this collection, as Robert Taglipietra and his partner Jeffrey Costello moved away from draping. (In fact there were virtually none in the 28 pieces collection.) Easy separates such as a colored cardigan is paired casually with shorts or pleated pants. When a dress does show up it's in a sheath that's cut close to the body. The color palette again represents the designer's signature water-color like richness in oranges, sea blue and purple. 

What we love: the floor length cardigan paired over a one shouldered maxi dress.
