This season, Binetti
This season, and by the

Hyden Yoo had the good
sense to stage his
fall/winter 2011
presentation at
Soho
House
. As models sipped
on drinks, smoked and
played pool you could be
forgiven for thinking you’d
just been invited on a night
out with the coolest gang
in town rather than to a
fashion presentation.

Kati Stern sent 69
garments down the
runway for fall/winter
2011 - that's what we
call pumping fashion

to say that it's all candy
without substance.

materials.
