Costello Tagliapietra Fall/Winter 2011

Posted by Stephan Moskovic | February 12th, 2011

Nineties nostalgia may be all the rage, but for designers Robert Tagliapietra and Jeffrey Costello the decade holds special significance; the duo met 17 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. It was this meeting that inspired their romantic f/w collection, filled with lighthearted plays on color and texture. Working with an autumnal palate of copper, red and green, punctuated with vivid bursts of pattern, they crafted a look that was pure fun. For lovers of beauty, there was plenty to enjoy – most notably the presence of the divine Brandi Quinones – though belted dresses in saffron and brush print blouses embellished with sequins were sartorial standouts. However, a knit jersey dress in ruby red may have been the pièce de résistance.

Sustainability was also on the brain at Costello; eco-conscious techniques like air dyeing and the use of harm-free alpaca fur (the fur is only taken from alpaca that die of natural causes) kept the collection earth friendly and solidified the brand’s commitment to thoughtful design.
