MBFW: Costello Tagliapietra’s Sexy Spring Collection Doesn’t Show Skin!
Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra’s spring 2013 colorful spring collection is chock full of eco-friendly wares that subtly show off your figure.

Who’s ready for some Costello Tagliapietra? The bearded duo has taken New York’s Fashion Week by storm and delivered a solid Spring 2012 collection consisting of vibrant blues and corals as well as a splash of green (quite reminiscent of a garden). The eco-friendly dresses were draped on the models’ slim bodies and came to life as they strutted their stuff.
While each look took on a different persona—from a long, drapey blue dress with a plunging neckline to a more fitted patterned dress—one thing that is for certain: Showing less skin is in! Who says you have to show a little cleavage to be sexy? Costello Tagliapietra has challenged that misconception by delivering a collection of dresses that barely show any skin, but still exude sexiness. None of the dresses show any cleavage; a few had the potential to, but were executed so beautifully that they kept everything under wraps. No dress was higher than a few inches above the knee—and that might even be overestimating it!
We couldn’t help but notice that belts accompany a significant amount of Costello Tagliapietra’s Spring 2012 Collection. Tied at the waist and seemingly camouflaged, they remain noticeable, defining the waist and giving each piece a lovely shape. Could this be a new trend to look out for? Time will tell.
Strictly for fun: One random spotting in this collection was a mustard-colored trench coat. We don’t know all the who’s and why’s, but we’re patiently waiting to hear more about it.
Looks like these newlyweds truly are a match made in heaven!
