The Designer: Waris Ahluwahlia
The Venue: The Museum of Arts & Design, where Ahluwahlia's jewels were displayed in glass vitrines, and his colorful scarves and kimonos were suspended from the ceiling on monofilament or wrapped around models who were otherwise naked, save for cotton panties.
The Crowd: Chloe Sevigny, Anjelica Huston, Olivier Zahm, Arden Wohl, Chiara Clemente, Elise Overland, Bibhu Mohapatra, Inez van Lamsweerde, Johan Lindberg, Linda Wells, Mark Holgate, Tara Subkoff, Poppy de Villeneauve, Tina Lutz, Tory Burch, Vinhoodh Matadin, Sarah Lerfel, Franca Sozzani and Meredith Melling Burke, among others.
The Collection: Like his jewelry, the designer's scarves are also meant to adorn and enhance. This season he featured a palm print inspired by those he discovered during a recent trip to Bali's Sacred Monkey Forest. The House of Waris pendants also recall blossoming palm fronds—or, perhaps a monkey's claw—albeit in brilliant diamonds and dazzling rubies.
The Standout Piece(s): Diamond drop earrings on a delicate gold chain and a diamond bracelet whose charms resemble the sails of a boat held aloft by a gentle breeze.
