Swaim And Christina Hutson, Back On The Runway In February-------
After shuttering Obedient Sons & Daughters last January, Swaim Hutson quietly assumed the reins at Generra in time to design the label’s Spring 2010 men’s collection in September. His wife Christina’s project this year was their second child. But here’s good news for fans of the Fashion Fund-nominated duo. They’ve reunited in Generra’s design room to work on both the company’s men’s and women’s lines. Just don’t go to their Fall ’10 show this coming February looking for the masculine/feminine tailoring they made their calling card at Daughters—or for the urban minimalist sensibility of recent Generra collections. The Hutsons tell us their women’s debut will have a “late 1970′s look, with the energy of Fiorucci.” The sketches Style.com saw featured fluoro brights, second-skin sweaters (Christina is calling them “suction knits”), and trippy blurred prints taken from the background of the animated movie Snow White. Expect some high-profile competition when you submit your Generra ticket request next month.
