For her Spring/Summer 2010 ready-to-wear collection, New York designer Susan Woo drew inspiration from Faye Dunaway’s lady-meets-outlaw alter ego in Bonnie and Clyde. (Coincidentally Stewart + Brown also cites the 1967 movie as its muse for Fall/Winter 2009. Trend alert?) “She’s strong yet vulnerable, intelligent and sexy,” writes Woo in the show notes. “She’s bold and and a little bit dangerous.”

Woo contrasts fluid, feminine drapery against crisp, hard lines to embody what she describes as the “complexities of the modern power woman.” To that end, she pairs a white wool-garbadine tuxedo jacket (topped with vegetable-tanned leather lapels) with slim pants sewn from black dupioni silk, embellishes a wool-jersey scarf dress with vegetable-tanned leather shoulder pads, and throws a black organic cotton vest over a chiffon bustier and a white dupioni-silk skirt.

Other standouts: The beyond-stunning purple dupioni-silk bustier dress and the blistering-red silk-georgette tank with draped arm cuffs, both of which had us counting the days—and our pennies—till spring.
