New York Spring 2009: Betsey Johnson, Dennis Basso, Tory Burch, Lutz + Patmos
LUTZ + PATMOS
Hosted at the Ralph Pucci gallery, Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos displayed their collection of easy and chic pieces, scattered throughout the space, on mannequins by Mr. Pucci. Certain dresses were reversible and each piece seemed perfect enough to wear out, yet comfortable and ideal for a night in as well. 'It's like a breath of fresh air like when you open your beach house,' explained Marcia Patmos. 'We were feeling fresh and our goal is for you want to go up to it and see what it is.' Along with their own designs, they invited Jane Birkin to create two pieces for their line which were on display in the front: the Jane Birkin V-neck and Jane Birkin tank.
Pucci welcomed his friend Susan Sarandon, who came directly from her event were she was honored by Mont Blanc, and he personally showed off the collection to her, even introducing her to the designers.
