Mathieu Mirano’s Spring/Summer 2013 presentation stood in sharp contrast to the season he was purportedly designing for. The stunning models (excellent casting for this show) posed as a snow queen in elegant gowns, capes, jackets, pants and short looks, as the beats thumped in the glacial background. It was fire and ice, with striking phoenix imagery. The model’s make-up was an effective nude look with a poker face and clean hairstyle. Time seamed to stand still in the Box at Lincoln Center for Matheui Mirano and his intricate, glamorous and impeccable new collection.
