The pre-show excitement in Spring Studios was palpable last night, affirming murmurs passed between security guards about how Sergio Hudson was one of the busiest shows of the day. The hype comes as no surprise as the brand’s website crashed three times on Inauguration Day after Hudson put the current Vice President in liquid sequins for the Inaugural Ball and dressed both Michelle Obama and Kamala Harris in floor-skimming wool coats and. Harris, the first Black and first South Asian Vice President, chose three black designers (Sergio Hudson, Christopher John Rogers, and Kerby Jean-Raymond of Pyer Moss) to dress her. It’s fair to say that Hudson loves women in history — and history-making women love him.
A percussionist opened the show to a ground-shaking drum performance, and then the audience was treated to a stream of smoky-eyed, smizing models in power suits, sleek glittering gowns, and ankle-breaking stilettos strutting down the reflective runway. Hudson stayed true to his strengths, showing bright red, blue, yellow, and purple iterations of the things he does best — pantsuits, statement belts, and thick coats that mean business. Most looks were completely monochrome, from the long-sleeve dresses with Bond Girl-esque slits to matching wool coats to sky-high heels that tie around the ankle. The political suit served as central inspiration but Hudson doesn’t shy away from vivid colors or shimmer as exemplified by the finale look, an iridescent violet one-shoulder dress that can only be described as Studio 54.
The designer played with off-the-shoulder knits and even introduced an abstract black and white print for a slinky full-length bodysuit with a matching coat. The combination is almost dizzying to look at, but it wouldn’t be a Sergio Hudson look without strong monochrome styling. After all, Hudson designs powerful suits for powerful women. His silhouettes communicate sleek simplicity and unapologetic strength, perfect for both the courtroom or an uber-chic party. Sometimes it’s a blazer, and sometimes it’s a faux fur coat, but each look demands to be taken seriously either way.END
