What: Wunderkind Fall 2006 Collection

Where: Bryant Park; the Tent

Celebs Spotted: America’s Next Top Model Naima (Cycle Four winner, if you’re still counting…)

Goodies: None from Wunderkind, but since this was an AM show I took advantage of the Atkin’s freebie bars and coffee. Snagged some hot pink Rimmel nail polishicon too, all courtesy of the sponsors in the tents. Unfortunately the coveted WE Network handbags were gone, I once again missed my window to nab a bag.

Thoughts: Pictures courtesy of my friend Julia Davis with her tiny digital camera. We tried the tips from mega-sponsor Olympus, but we are most definitely amateur photogs. Wunderkind’s program indicated that the collection “references Neue Sachlichkeit,” Neue who? Actually it is an entire artistic genre that translates as New Objectivity, a movement that began after WWI ending around 1933. History lesson over, onto the clothes. The presentation was standard fare for the big tent, the colors were muted under the warm lighting. Designer Wolfgang Joop kept his palette to earthy tones with camel, midnight blue, and black. The highlight was the touches of saffron yellow and brick reds bringing to life an otherwise formal collection. The hats, coats, and cloaks bypassed fall and took us straight to winter. It was a far cry from the flowing romanticism of the Spring Collection. The silhouettes were, well, strange. Some flattering, some just cross the line of wearable. But that’s typical of this off-kilter Dutch-born designer. Unimpressed with our snapshot skills? Check out the pros at nymetro.com. They had better seats.
