Trust Isaac Mizrahi to give good quote. "What's the mac and cheese version of a dress?" the designer wondered at his informal pre-fall presentation, where the increasing importance of "the whole comfort thing" was on his mind. Mizrahi's answer to that question? Flapper-esque sacks in colorful satin trimmed in crystals. A pajama suit in Lurex-shot green silk and a purplish-black crushed silk parka had a similar sporty, easy sensibility. But Mizrahi also brought the drama in the form of a knockout evening ensemble: a white blouse covered in rosettes and a poured silk column of a black skirt that pooled on the floor around the model's feet.
