For Spring 2009, Charlotte Ronson presented a collection that epitomized â€śdowntown chicâ€? in a way that she does so well. The energy of the show was set by Ladyhawkeâ€™s Paris Is Burning – a little sweet mixed in with some rock nâ€™ roll edge. Charlotteâ€™s palette is usually on the muted side and this collection was no different. She had different stories in taupe, gray denim, black, soft pink, indigo, and lilac with some pops of neon pink. She had a few prints mixed in as well such as stripes and big floral prints on chiffon and silk.
The silhouettes were short and wispy with some hints of tailoring with some high-waisted silhouettes and nods to corsetry. Zippers played a large role in the collection and could be found on everything from skirts, tops, dresses and pants. Many of the dresses were paired with off-the-shoulder loose fitting t-shirts that added a feeling of â€śI just threw this together.â€? Some of the looks had metallic necklaces with tassles, casually draped around the modelâ€™s necks, that would move with the modelâ€™s every movement and added a bit of drama to the looks. The hair and make-up complemented the collection with the models sporting messy, undone ponytails and natural makeup. Overall, the collection looked really easy to wear and had a nice balance of being laid-back, while very â€śput togetherâ€? at the same time.
Here’s a video of one of the songs that was playing to give you an idea of the vibe of the show:
