Review Collection

“Whenever we go out, people always ask us where we got our clothes,” Robert Tagliapietra said of the genesis of his and partner Jeffrey Costello’s collection this season. “So we decided to feminize the pieces we make for ourselves.” The duo certainly have a trademark look (they were Brooklyn lumberjacks when today’s hipsters were still in high school), the rugged masculinity of which has always made a charming contrast to their soigné womenswear. This season’s outing didn’t move too far into masculine territory (if you’re curious, the models were not kitted out in bushy beards), but Costello Tagliapietra’s personal staples—like plaid work shirts and chunky cardigans—were very much in the mix. The plaid had been blurred and printed on loose tops and semi-sheer, buttoned-up blouses, and the cardigans came slim, long, and sleeveless. Worn open and belted, they ensured that even the dressiest dresses, like the draped, bright pink, floor-length one that closed the show, were low-key.
