This afternoon Ohne Titel designers Alexa Adams and Flora Gill showed a fall 2010 collection built around nineteenth-century Victorian silhouettes. “But using, like, the outer shell and simplifying it in a way so it became very pared down and kind of like streamlined and sharp,” Gill told us after the show. It opened with pantsuits, which Preen also showed, and seem to be a trend for fall 2010. But this is not your average, boxy Capitol Hill fare. Next fall’s pantsuits are slouchy — thanks to softer fabrics — yet strong. “[It’s] a little more aggressive of a look. I think it’s nice to be strong,” Adams said. “I love power dressing, and I think that our customer is a really powerful, strong woman who would wear those sort of things,” Gill added.
