Melanie Ward's Blouson Noir Spring 2010 at Opening Ceremony

Harper Bazaar's fashion editor Melanie Ward is one of the most legendary stylists in the American fashion industry—her longtime collaborations with Helmut Lang (the designer, not the current incarnation of the label) yielded some of the greatest fashion moments—in the world—in the 1990s.

Ward has recently launched Blouson Noir with knitwear designer Graham Tabor, who worked under her at the eponymous and short-lived Karl Lagerfeld collection in New York a few years ago. Select items from Blouson Noir's 35-piece premiere season are now available Stateside at Opening Ceremony, both in stores and online.

The garments are produced in New York and are priced between $860 and $1,310.
