The design duo walked the catwalk as their bow at the end of their Fall 2011 WTB by Richie Sambora and Nikki Lund show sponsored by Polaroid sunglasses. The collection rocked the house at the Metropolitan Pavilion, capping the Style 360 shows held there throughout the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week that ended tonight.
Of course, leather and black were prerequisites, in all their permutations. My favorite? The sexiest, skinniest black leather cargo pants. Yumbly! Distress and glittered shearling jackets and a tight cut on trousers hit high notes, as did a ruffled and rouched chiffon and taffeta cape and backless silver mesh gown.
My prediction is that this collection, in its third season and gearing up to intro men’s wear next month in Nashville, of all places, is headed straight to the tops of the pops. If this collection were a song. And if retail was a Billboard Chart.
