GRETA CONSTANTINE, FALL 2010

Since 2005, when Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong launched the Greta Constantine line, it’s become one of the most hotly anticipated shows of the season. For Fall 2010, the collection’s colour palette was dark—grey, brown, purple, black, of course—and featured two distinct looks for women. The more daring of the two included pieces like fur vests, leather leggings and close-fitting jumpsuits with strips of leather paneling. There was something Star Wars and amazing about it. Blade Runner, too—couldn’t this be Pris, circa Fall 2010?

Then there were the long, draped dresses (a Greta signature), which had an elegant Halston vibe.

Model Cici Ali was a highlight of the show—she’s beautiful, healthy, and had the best walk of the night.

Another highlight? The menswear. Never mind the gimmicky makeup or Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up” on the soundtrack—this was an extremely wearable collection full of chic, well-made pieces, like a classic black coat made cool with leather panelling on the shoulders.
