Miss Sixty Spring 2009: ‘It’s All About Being Noticed’

Miss Sixty Spring 2009

NEW YORK, Sep 8, 2008 / FW/ — The Spring/Summer 2009 collection creates a new type of urban superheroine: beautiful, charming and glamorously feminine- all with an ironic tongue-in-cheek attitude.

The contemporary, layered silhouettes and contrasting, bold graphics create a new level of impact.  Nylon is used often throughout the collection to create pieces that are both lightweight and comfortable, yet sophisticated.  Ultra-accessorization is the new trend from Miss Sixty, shown in layered bangles up to the elbow.  Also, the balloon style sleeves and pants are used to emphasize the feminine figure.

We love that Miss Sixty has tapped into the curves of the female physique in ways not done before.  Denim is reinvented for the spring with a focus on sexy, curve-hugging fits.  As usual, denim anchors the collection, offered in an array of washes and ranging from shirts to dresses to one-pieces.

Let’s not ignore, however, the main influence of this collection- the DNA of Miss Sixty, the 1970s.  In a modern way, Miss Sixty has paid homage to the passionate, freethinking ideals and values of the 1970s.  Combining the sexual liberation, freedom, and self-confidence, Miss Sixty has created an overtly seductive style that is at once boldly futuristic and chicly playful.

Thanks to this collection, we will all wish that we could wear the belly-bearing denim tops and throw-back one piece suits.  Fortunately, there are pieces in the collection for every shape, and in such an expressive range of fabrics and colors.

Also on the calendar for Miss Sixty is the anticipation of the launch of the first global, flagship e-commerce site just one day after the fashion show in New York- today! The virtual store will allow clients form all over the world (including Russia, USA, UK, Europe, Middle and Far East, Africa and many others) to surf through and buy the complete 2008 Fall/Winter collection.

The site will also feature video of the catwalk show and interviews recorded during the fashion show with founders of Sixty Group, Wichy Hassan, creative director, and Renato Rossi, CEO of Sixty Group.
