Fashion Week Notebook | Imitation of Christ

September 11th, 2005

Key Takeaways: For the debut of Imitation of Christ’s denim line, Tara Subkoff went Dark Americana. The IOC show mixed innocent pieces like jumpers and little girl sundresses with come hither High red heels, racy lace-up detailing, and bondage-style handcuffs. As the show progressed, the clothes lightened up, first with distressed denim looks. The show finished with a ballet of retro-style chiffon dresses.

Color Palette: (Denim) blue, white, red, and black.

Silhouettes: T-shirts and jeans, with heels. Little girl styles: jumpers and sundresses. Retro-style chiffon dresses. Cropped pants: short shorts, mid-calf length pants, and ankle-length pants.

Accessories Report: Fedora hats, Slouchy boots (continuing trend), High heels.

What’s Wearable: Most everything. T-shirts and jeans—very white bread. The sundresses are adorable. The chiffon dresses are also party-able.

What’s Not Wearable: We’re a no-go on the mid-calf length shorts. Some of the distressed denim is a bit extreme. Also, leave the handcuffs at home.

    Appropriately enough, they’re the “Scarlet” jeans. AzaleaSF has them–

    Hope this helps, Laura!
