Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear
February 13, 2010 New York
Scottish newcomer Graeme Armour shared his Valentine's Day time slot at Milk Studios with three other labels. If he was the least well-known, he won't be for long. The Central Saint Martins grad, who worked closely with Alexander McQueen for three years, has a clever eye for cut. He demonstrated that here by slicing wool or leather into edgy jumpsuits that reveal almost as much as they conceal. He's also got a showman's sensibility for artful details. How about those pewter leather pants with their tiered ruffles? Or the crocheted black leather tank and bomber that were less flashy, yet displayed an equally impressive level of workmanship? Pieces like those will tempt the big-name stylists who turned up, but let's hope Armour keeps experimenting with more everyday items. Thanks to its asymmetrical drape, his deceptively simple crisp white shirt was anything but ordinary.
