We daresay one of our favorite American designers Isaac Mizrahi is a bit obsessed with precipitation. At his spring-summer show last season, he made it rain, and models traversed the catwalk-slash-obstacle-course with help from a production crew member with an umbrella. This season? He made it snow.
The weather patterns at the Mizrahi show only added to the charm of his fall-winter "Central Park Storybook" collection—we adored his witty use of clear plastic (on raincoats and shoes), the easy-to-wear silhouettes which included everything from sleek, boxy, waistless straight dresses to glamorous waist-nipping floofy gowns, quilted olive-green leather coats in the Barbour or barn jacket tradition, and too-cute Muppetfur outerwear in Beaker-hair orange. The glittery slip dresses in a handful of bright tropical colors were classic Mizrahi, and our favorites.
