Costello TagliapietraSpring Summer 2015 New York

Runway Review

David Lynch has been having quite the moment in fashion over the past couple of seasons. The filmmaker and artist just announced a sportswear range this Summer, as well as having designed the set for Kenzo’s Fall 2014 collection. Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra of Costello Tagliapietra are the latest designers to jump on the bandwagon of Lynch’s cult-like following, having used his films as inspiration for their latest assortment, coupled with many long train MTA train rides to the office together – the latter a simultaneously surreal and mundane exercise if there ever was one. The influence didn't render itself in the way a Lynch aficionado would have expected, though the quite dialed-down dresses and separates in neutral tones were particularly quixotic: a nod to the pair's office-bound trips and Lynch's Lost Highway character played by Patricia Arquette.

A brocade silk skirt suit with a contrast lapel and button placket and a pleated skirt had a vintage sensibility, given modern edge with strappy open-toe sandals. Separates continued in contrast stripe trousers in Spring-perfect aquamarine, high-waist pencil skirt with a flattering wrap silhouette, a single-breasted blazer, and sporty chic bomber jackets.

Nothing says femme fatale like a curve-skimming dress and the lineup was running over with wiggle-perfect frocks. Ruched detailing, thigh-high slits, and sultry peeks of décolletage all drove the point home for the confident, powerful, and sexy woman that Costello Tagliapietra takes such pleasure in dressing. Most looks were completed by a nipped-in waist: elongating the figure and creating that va-va voom silhouette that the brand has become known for season after season.

The real fun was had with Hockney-reminiscent plaid and variegated stripe prints, splattered across bustier dresses, keyhole-accented tops, and so much more. The brand's main goal above all is to make its wearers feel gorgeous and elegant and the twosome definitely delivered with a collection that conjured modern-day glamour and refinement.
