At Ninh

This fashion week in New York was the debut of new menswear line Ninh. Here's what I saw. My eyes went straight to the jewelry, made by designer Cat Varga for Ninh's Fall 2011 collection:

star necklace worn with a trimmed blazer-cape

multiple-finger rings of different sorts:

with a large crystal and a skinny chain

coiled thrice, then once

angular and worn with leather fingerless mittens

I really liked Ninh's use of ruching, a widely misused technique commonly seen in womenswear. It adds texture and subtle volume to the blazer, and there is a certain subtlety in having this detail only visible from the back.

on the chicest lady in the room: Yigal Azrouel cape with earrings set in dark metal

the designer, Ninh Nguyen
