Carmen Marc Volvo Fall ’08

Carmen Marc Volvo’s satin 1920’s evening wear show was a tad boring, though a snip, quite a snip, elegant. Obvious decco 20s references and beautiful satins marked the collection, but to this reporter, not much else marked it. Though I wouldn’t complain if my date showed up wearing one of these ensembles (they carried kind of sombre austerity with their rich historic elegance, always nice at the Kinsdale Tavern or The Barking Dog on the Upper East Side, my haunts) as a show, and as a collection, it did not dazzle or inspire. — Miles Redfield, Reporting.
