Not everyone hated the spring 2010 Emanuel Ungaro collection. Bloomingdale's vice-president and fashion director Stephanie Solomon told WWD, “I know it sounds a bit controversial, but we loved Ungaro and its sexy, draped minidresses in vibrant, happy colors. Estrella Archs is a talent to watch." We feel bad for Estrella, who is, let's not forget, doing the actual designing at Ungaro. Her résumé alone, which boasts work experience at Hussein Chalayan, Emilio Pucci, Prada, and Nina Ricci, certainly suggests she has talent. Sadly, her capabilities have been overshadowed by Ungaro artistic adviser Lindsay Lohan and the glitter heart-shaped nipple pasties and glitter heart-shaped forehead stickers that walked down the runway in the house's spring 2010 show, prompting critics to label it a disaster. However, she presented her spring 2010 collection for her namesake line in Paris yesterday. And she did a good job! The clothes are simple, but she certainly has a point of view. And if the critics are looking for someone to blame for the nipple-pastie flub at Ungaro, they might note Archs's namesake line included no pasties (just good old-fashioned nipples showing through sheer fabric). Glitter and hearts were also absent, for that matter. And you know what else is really interesting?
Estrella looks startlingly happier after her namesake-collection show than walking the runway with Lindsay at Ungaro. But that's understandable when the Ungaro office must now operate like this:
[Lohan] picked up a black and white scarf and tied it around her head, then replaced it with a black one, and then clumsily stuck a red sequin-covered heart to the side of her head while a team of designers watched her...
“This is just so cool,” Ms. Lohan said, turning her attention to a white minidress splattered with sequins. “It needs more rhinestones, just so it pops.” Off to the seamstress it went. Pointing to another white dress, she said: “I call it Michelle Pfeiffer in ‘Scarface.’ I was just in my office sketching for next season. I was here until, like, one o’clock last night.”
