Narciso Rodriguez Brings Fall 2009's Neon Back to the '00s

>> This evening, Narciso Rodriguez took the neon nuances of Marc Jacobs's Fall 2009 collection — which Cathy Horyn called "hard to like" — and did with them something Marc did not: made them modern.  In fact, Narciso's best pieces were the neon ones: the highlighter yellow body-conscious dress worn by Natasha Poly will be fought over; the loose citrine dress with snap sleeves donned by Stephanie Carta and Ali Stephens's lace-overlayed pink highlighter minidress are also strong contenders.  The camouflage pieces could be done without — except for Sessilee Lopez's pants; but more standouts — Liu Wen's polished silk top and wool pant, Diana Farkhullina's rich blue-purple dress, and Raquel Zimmerman's chic white frock more than make up for them.  Perhaps even more amazing these days — Narciso's show was fully self-funded, and yet, it still felt like a true show — the bass was so loud, it reverberated in our seats, causing the Financial Times's Vanessa Friedman to bob her head along in approval.
