February 15, 2010 New York
As if in retort to the evening's less-than-gorgeous meteorological state (rain, snow, slush), manic colors were splashed on foul-weather gear. Toggle coats and slickers looked cozy, if a bit cartoonish, with their big pockets, but the addition of a loopy, abstract beret to one of the looks was a reminder not to take things too seriously. Behind the models, a screen flashed the phrase "The good things still exist" in different languages. The bass beat was so loud, a few guests looked like they might bounce off their benches, but everyone did seem to have a good time.
