But, though virtuous, there is nothing crunchy or goody-two-shoes about Noir. We're not talking T-shirts here. In the past, in fact, Ingwersenwho wove in his new line of see-through lingerie on this week's runwayhas skewed things a bit too far in the fetish direction. However, his Manhattan debut was reigned in, pared down, and precision-tailored.
Ingwersen did what could best be described as Danish modern. Looking for a snappy white suit, dangerous micro mini, or a great shrunken bomber? He's your man. While the sleevelike leggings might be a fright on anyone but a lithe-limbed model and the big evening numbers sort of fizzled, several other after-dark looks (a shocking-pink party dress, a sensuous silken shirtdress, an elegant sequined cardigan) were elegantly effective.
