Honor – Spring 2011

Images by Samantha Casolari

Honor designer Giovanna Randall calls her girl Catherine Deneuve meets Cyndi Lauper, but at her show it’s clear that there’s no one girl in mind. There are freckled models, African-American models, a model who’s my mother’s age, even a model who’s—gasp—my height (5’4″). Their faces are painted in a pearlescent glow that the Nars makeup artists defines as “a little ghostly.” A model describes it best: like a toddler’s eyelids right after a nap.

Hair, styled by Ramie Roth of Whittemore House, deconstructs from vignette to vignette. Soft, pinned-up curls portray a child-like innocence, turning messy, almost ratty, and finally tousled and sexy. The collection involves floral brocade and long, dyed silk gowns, which add to the dreamy atmosphere. And as I leave I, in fact, feel like I have just woken up from a nap.

    [...] Honor: The invitation for the debut collection from pre-med student-turned-designer Giovanna Randall was accompanied with a box of macarons, and the clothes proved to be every bit as sweet. One of the most buzzed about new lines to enter the oft finicky fashion fray, Honor’s presentation highlighted Randall’s knack for knowing just what girls want. The ultra-feminine wares achieved a sense of dreaminess without being juvenile – often a difficult balance to strike. Inspired by glamour icons Grace Kelly and Catherine Deneuve, the clothes appeared as if they were made to be shot in soft focus. A mix of pastels and mellow earth tones, the very wearable collection boasted metallic brocade florals, flowing silk gowns, sheer blouses and ladylike blazers. Based on all the rave reviews, we have a hunch the CFDA will be knocking on Randall’s door soon.
