Now you see fashion, now you don’t.
Illusion was one of the key trends to emerge as New York Fashion Week entered its fourth day Sunday, with sheer looks making a quiet statement.
Strategic use of sheer fabric — here on sleeves, there on a neckline, overlay or skirt — gave the illusion of bareness without revealing too much. The look was naturally sexy, without being vulgar.
The light, airy feel of the clothes went with a generally optimistic feeling that has prevailed at the spring 2011 previews at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Late Sunday, the crowd headed to a twenty-fifth anniversary party for Tommy Hilfiger, one of the splashiest events of the week.
