Thuy Spring 2010 – New York Fashion Week

Designer Thuy Diep’s Spring/Summer 2010 women’s collection – “sexy, flirty, with a bit of S&M,” she said – retained much of the same aesthetic and style of her looks from last season, yet pushed the envelope a bit more with its rawer and more daring take. Zippers, used as both an embellishment and a design statement, played a very prominent role as straps in some pieces while woven seamlessly into patterns in other cases. Other designs were equally unique, such as a black shoulder tie dress and a playful inside-out dress with “pockets” seemingly hanging out.
