Nerds rule! Ok, that's a stretch at fashion week, but the intellectual role model is making gains on the supermodel this season. At many fashion shows for fall, the smart girls with glasses have been up and the runway, proving substance is not exclusive of style.
Adam Lippes was inspired by a small exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian in Lower Manhattan. While the motifs were not immediately apparent, very pretty prints and occasional blanket silhouettes may have been the result. The other looks were put-together and preppy, some 1970's thrown in. Materials included plaids, lace, mohair and feathers. The color palette was a deep cobalt blue, rich claret, grey, gold and black. Accessories included glasses and cozy knit caps.
