Fashion Week: Abaete Spring 2007

September 18, 2006 by kendah

Ah, Abaete. What was once just gorgeous swimwear is now a whole line of sexy, sensible, sun-drenched clothing. And, after a partnership with Payless—a host of affordable, adorable shoes. It’s unfortunate that the Abaete show was held on a rainy afternoon miserable enough to leave the tent practically empty.

The music’s sultry and sexy. So are the girls and their clothes. Swag bags from Abaete? Oh, and a double eye shadow from Nars to boot? Hail to the growth of small fashion companies!

Jumpsuits and dresses called Mick, Bianca and Jagger. A model rear end is hanging out. All stare and comment on its small stature. Suddenly, I feel like I’m a late 70s jet-setter about to take off on my flight from Paris to Rio. I pretend my rear end still looked like that after 8th grade.

As for the clothes– Gorgeous blends of floral accents on skirts, Swarovski buttons, off-the-shoulder sleeves, and gold accented silks. A fashion show that’s only about the clothes? Really. Abaete is simple, to-the-point, provocative, tasteful clothing. And had a show that’s dead on to its brand.

A model parades Abaete founder Laura Proetsky around the catwalk. Beaming and grinning, she waves and bids us adieu. And we’re out of the room in a record 10 minutes flat.
