Odd Molly opened with a band. No, not just any band, but Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl’s Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger. Trippy, eclectic and youthfully romantic, every piece was a look back to San Francisco in the 60’s. Crocheted half gloves, ribboned socks peeking over white-washed, cut-off cowboy boots, strawberry hair extensions woven in braids; all we needed was a Strawberry Field to run in. Details were impressive with tiny ruffles in metallic crocheted ponchos, and layer after layer of mini floral prints mixed together to create a patchwork of vintage-like “stole it from the attic” perfection. Satin played a big part of the collection with silk slips, edged in ecru crocheted lace and ruffled, panties worn as shorts, because those were the days of free expression and free love. Old rose, berry, gold, apricot, gray and indigo made up the color palette in this delightfully young and gentle collection for Odd Molly Spring 2011 at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The pièce de résistance was a beaded, multi-calico, layered ruffling flamingo dancer’s gypsy dress. John Lennon would have been proud.
