Norisol Ferrari mused with strong feminine women that were for her Fall 2012 collection. Showing for her first time at Lincoln Center, Norisol's collection like her woman was anything but weak. "Fit is so important to me," said Norisol, pointing out one white gown in particular that took many tries to be sculpted perfectly with tailoring. "If that dress was a car it would have the mileage of your family's old pick up," she said.
Her line of luxe leathers and ample silhouetted garments were displayed on mannequins so that guests could view every couture detail. Sunglass designers and downtown it-girl twins, Coco and Breezy, modeled for the presentation. Their tall stature and shockingly prismatic hair greeted guests as they walked in, setting the tone as dramatic and cool. "Our style is futuristic punk," said Coco.
Hair stylist and salon owner Yves Durif, the regular coiffure of Daphne Guinness' magnificent two toned mane, was well versed at styling the twins' multicolored coif. He used a Phyto finishing spray, made with silk "it's actually good for hair rather than damaging," said Yves. (For more tips check out Yves' new blog on Huffington Post.)
As we were leaving the Valentine's day presentation Etta James' A Sunday Kind of Love came on and we had to admit we were feelin' a Tuesday-kind-of-love for Norisol's collection, especially her leather pants and outerwear pieces.
