Fashion Week Diaries: Geren Ford Spring Summer 2009

September 9, 2008 by Rebekah

We went to the Geren Ford Spring Summer 2009 presentation Wednesday night, which basically turned out to be pouty, bored-looking models (is there any other kind?) standing on white boxes while lots of writers, editors and photographers creepily peered up at them snapping photos and taking notes.

Before the presentation started, we were invited to drink Moet and Belvedere (but ONLY Moet and Belvedere) on a pretty swanky hotel patio, with lots of other pouty and bored looking guests.

Here’s the scene:

We arrive on the patio, Bryn T tries to get red wine, gets shut down, and orders a vodka soda instead.

Rebekah: Damn, I left my impractical and unattractive peep toe booties at home. I don’t fit in.
Bryn T: Is there a runway? Where are the models?
Rebekah: Are the people over there live blogging?! (They weren’t, I asked.)

Audible music and a flurry of activity ensues. Models walk down a corridor and mount white cubes.

Rebekah: This feels voyeuristic.
Bryn T: Of course it’s voyeuristic.
Bryn T: All of the models are wearing socks with sandals.
Rebekah: My feet are the outcasts of this party.

Here are the takeaways:

Everyone wears peep-toe booties these days. If you must, below are two versions we think are pretty good. On the left, Bruno Frisoni’s purple suede version ($1,115); the more budget-friendly Steve Madden pair ($190) on the right incorporates tough buckle detail, too.

A very cool stylist (with a very cool name – JaQuette Jones) was rocking neon green nails on her fingers and toes. She’s awesome.

Geren Ford’s Spring Summer 2009 collection is accessible and wearable, even if you're talking about real-people wearable. We were particularly fond of the accessories – scarves and chunky chains accenting slouchey silhouettes, and forcing us to consider whether the socks-and-sandals look was actually in really good taste, like the rest of the accessories.
