Daytime Drama

5 looks for Michelle Obama

(page 1 of 2)


Wearing Narciso Rodriguez on election night

We asked five locals to envision a daytime look for the first lady. Results may vary, but each designer agreed on one thing: it’s nice to sketch for an independent woman, a person who wears the clothes—rather than the other way around.

 

1  PIERRE COLORADO
Former Abercrombie & Fitch designer; now runs Blake Standard, his own line of chic women’s sportswear

LOOK Pima cotton tank dress with lightweight French terry jacket

PHILOSOPHY “She’s really like the presidential soccer mom,” Colorado says. “She’s a terrifically stylish and very sophisticated lady, but she’s also very casual.”

 

2  5P1T
Young label from creative director Richard Morse and business partner Daryl Sneed; sold exclusively at Macy’s on State Street

LOOK Purple Italian wool crepe dress and wrap coat

PHILOSOPHY  “The color purple honors the emergence of a new Camelot in America,” the duo says. “We see Michelle Obama conveying a new era of femininity that speaks to strength and confidence.”
