Stefan Miljanic’s Gilded Age spring-summer 2010 collection was casual, wearable, and showed attention to detail.
All in organic fabrics, the garments were in a mixed color palette with a lot of blue, plaid, and variations on khaki.
Shorts rolled up a few times created a sexy yet preppy style destined to be seen in The Hamptons and out on Cape Cod next summer.
The presentation was held in the yard at the SoHo Grand Hotel and there was a line of connected picnic tables covered in sod, which could have been used as a runway, and the models were staggered along its length while guests mingled around and a jazz band played in the background.
Stefan says, “my clothes remain organic, and comfort and small detail is important to me.”
Plaid shirts on the exterior were lined with striped materials inside, so when cuffs were rolled more color and style shot out, giving the wearer some control over how loud they want their outfit to be. Jeans were loose fit with a worn appearance.
With both the suits and the more casual looks, the models wore Keep shoes. There was a mix of black hightops, light suede booties, and topsider style boat shoes, some with a touch of that signature plaid.
