NEW YORK, Sep 4, 2009 / FW/ — For Spring 2010, Malan Breton imbues a creative journey back to his roots in the ballet, exploring elements of his childhood when he began dancing at the age of 7.
The inspiration for his spring collection comes from the strength and form of the image “Flight of Freedom,” a black-and-white image of his friend Leigh Alderson from the Royal Ballet, shot by Dublin’s Karin Pritzel . This is also the image of Breton’s invitation.
“There will be a 45-piece orchestra playing the show, the Chelsea Symphony,” reveals Breton. “I wanted the show to feel like a night at the Met, a night at the ballet.”
Presented by Rado Switzerland, the show will take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan on September 14th at 11:00 AM.
The show will also mark Breton’s first foray into menswear, further expanding the Malan Breton Collection with a touch of Saville Row.
“The trends for this spring are strong and structural yet soft and fluid. Romance! Boy meets girl, but really celebrating the individual,” exclaims Malan Breton.
