Isaac Mizrahi Spring Summer 2010 Runway Show 2009
... Recreating the backstage mood of a movie set or perhaps a Broadway stage, Mr. Mizrahi sent out soft, flirty skirts in mottled silk prints with masculine cropped jackets or a stiff wool bustier. There were cheeky takes on the polo shirt (in knit with sheer nylon backs), and the strappy three-tone shoes seemed a deconstructed version of a hoofer’s fancy wingtips. Bags were miniature versions of vintage suitcases.
Mr. Mizrahi had fun. At intervals during the show, theatrical rain poured down on raised platforms as a Woody Allen-type — an actor and comic named Stuart Jenkins — trotted from the sides and opened an umbrella for a model. Later, another stagehand drove out onto the runway in a golf cart, transporting a model in a black sequin jacket and shorts with a white polka-dot silk jacquard blouse. On her head was a cardboard skipper.
Fashion is all entrance, at least in Mr. Mizrahi’s mind. It just so happens that the clothes are good-looking and wearable, too.
