FROM TRIBA SPACE
The Twentyten's Collection Four is a whimsical exploration of the inner-workings of the mind, its hallucinations, and the complexity and endless creativity of irrationality. Baked on a fictional female character and her descent into madness, this season seamlessly fuses dark and playful, vibrancy and gloom, intricacy and delicate simplicity. Collection Four embodies the essence of the young brand: the ability to dip into both the fantastic and the absurd while still creating relaxed, wearable garments
At The Twentyten's presentation in the Starett-Lehigh building, crickets and baby mice were encapsulated in glass vessels next to ebony and steel jewelry designs. Videos made by renowned design firm We Came In Peace, which predominately featured images of women screaming, were projected onto walls and columns throughout the space.
Presenting their fourth collection at the Goldsmith mannequin showroom in Chelsea’s art gallery district, the abstract forms allows the viewer to bring their own persona to the easy draped shifts and tops paired with slouchy trousers or narrow bottoms. The projected video look-book as you enter the presentation, produced by We Came In Peace, successfully gives life to the team’s concept of this season’s muse descending into madness expressing all of her contradictory emotions wearing a favorite shocking pink dress.
Building on the interdisciplinary trend of designers and artists using multimedia installations to immerse the spectator, many of the newer labels for New York Fashion Week created these still and lifestyle events that go beyond the catwalk.
WCIP Headquarters is always host to a myriad of creative happenings. This past Fall/Winter 2010 fashion week we opened our airlocks to our kindred alien allies, THE TWENTYTEN to prepare their modelbots before unleashing their collection on the human populace.
Our lovely agent of the pen, SKUMMI, was on site to provide a glimpse behind the rubberized leather curtain with this on-site sketch.
We've added the full gallery of images here.
"Designers Jeff Dodd, David J. Krause and Nina Zilka pushed their collection toward the avant-garde in everything from a floor-length skirt of unraveled yarn to pyramid helmets made of fur, but it’s their ability to craft salable pieces like sharp, modern jackets and easy, draped dresses that sets them apart."

The shout outs continue to pour in from the ether of the blogosphere .
While still knee-high/ boot-deep in fashion week, I Love Factory receives props on Gawker by way of blog star Tavi. The youngling graced our mystic pocket event with a swift cameo. Accounts say fashion's sage baby made her way through the crowd, exchanged pleasantries with ILF designer, Laurel St. Romain, and slipped out of the China 1 catacombs to complete her fashion week crawl.
This fairie of sartorial prescience left the crowd slightly enchanted, with only our elixir of Pernod Absinthe to magnify her effects.

Saturday's Eternal Coronation presentation was magical!! Thank you so much to everyone who came out.
Laurel said it. "Not only did we transform an already perfect space into a magical vignette complete with absinthe over sugar cubes and fish heads under bell jars, we also managed to cultivate a comfortable, intimate, completely magnetic milieu."
Bacall of Defying Mainstream wrote the most glorious recap, and even posted her own video moment of the installation (scored by our playlist no less!)! We LOVE HER!
Thank you Bacall, it was wonderful to meet you! And thank you to all our supporters, participants, sponsors, and lovers. XOXO
