    Preen: Draping, Draping, and More Draping
    The Thread

    British label Preen always draws a hipper-than-hip crowd, and today was no exception, with Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Leigh Lezark, and Alexandra Richards all chatting away in the front row. The clothing sent down the runway, with its artful folds and racy cutouts, seemed quite catered to this PYT crowd.  We're not positive how the designs will necessarily translate on a normal woman's body, but at least on the models, the dresses were super sexy. A few office-appropriate items, such as white blouses, sleek trousers, and long blazers were interspresed among the the frocks, however, the vast majority of the collection was all about asymmetrical dresses, short and long, that exposed skin in an unusual way.
