So far this week, we've seen that very 1990s trend of color blocking revived by rag & bone, Derek Lam, Cynthia Rowley and DKNY, but no one has managed it quite as artfully as Narciso Rodriguez. His Lincoln Center show was a study in bold black and white, focusing on fabrics rather than silhouette. But his tribute to 1990s minimalism didn't feel nearly as costume-like as the current 1970s revival. Instead, these very sophisticated pieces simply became canvases for Rodriguez's exploration. Painted fabric patterns softened the blocking, as Rodriguez added lavenders, plums, and reds to his dresses. And just when you thought the collection was getting a tad too masculine with leather and grays, Rodriguez would surprise with a hint of chiffon. This was the week's most stylish gallery opening.
