Nancy transports to Deauville, France with Dennis Basso's Spring 13 Presentation.
Dennis Basso's exquisite Spring '13 presentation took a viewer to a different realm and time period; one never would have guessed they were in the midst of New York Fashion Week. The St. Regis Hotel Rooftop was the most appropriate setting, dripping with crystal chandeliers, draped gold curtains, and a heavenly painted sky ceiling. Inspired by the prestigious Deauville resort in France at its peak in the 1960's, Basso evoked a time when fashion was reserved for the upper classes, and fancy galas were attended with elaborate gowns, furs, and lace.
The colors in his spring collection were inspired by the views from the seaside: shades of champagne, blues, black, and pearl all conjured the ocean and night sky. I was completely awed by the craftsmanship of each beautiful gown. Each piece was perfected with incredible details like hand-stitched embroidery, beading, and lace. The luxe, delicate fabrics included silk organza, chiffon, and soft chinchilla furs.
Below are my personal two favorites. If I didn't have another show to go to, I truly believe I could have just spent the whole day wistfully gazing upon these stunning gowns.
