NEW YORK -- Narciso Rodriguez is one of the quiet giants of New York Fashion Week, showing collections that are unfailingly innovative in tailoring and cut. And this season he outdid himself. It's almost as if he took everything out there in the fashion ether and said, "I can do that, but when I do, it will be like nothing you've seen anywhere else. " The look: Clean and geometric-inspired, but not too serious. Clothes that played with the tension between hard and soft, mixing textures and bold colors such as tangerine, burnt sienna, emerald and azalea.
