Sharon Wauchob S/S 2010 / PFW / Day two

Acknowledging the past and anticipating the future without being cliché can be a tricky balancing act, but not for Sharon Wauchob, whose spring collection, inspired by her native Ireland, perfectly bridged tradition and modernity. “I’m seeing the lighter side from what I’ve done in the past, more sensitivity,” Wauchob said before the show. And how. She grafted exquisite handmade and embroidered lace onto gauzy shifts, dresses and shirts, and paired them with silk drawstring boxers for a look that was romantic, yet packed rock attitude. Aside from drop-crotch pants, the collection’s one off-key note, effortless draping, eyelet dresses and floaty blouses teamed with bold-shouldered, deconstructed jackets, were feminine but not fragile and showcased Wauchob’s mastery of the old and new.
