Though the glasses looked kind of silly, we liked the fact that the Alessa Casati Spring 2009 collection turned up neon when it came to piping, shoes, accessories, and the occasional solid garment. Having really enjoyed the Operations Spring 09 collection, where the designers used hints of orange and green in their collection, we're happy to see this trend from another designer. Otheriwse, the Alessa Casati collection had some very nice contemporary pieces where the draping seemed right and the overall feeling was young and energetic. Some garments fit the models better than others but that's probably because the models at Mexico Fashion Week come in all shapes and sizes. We're not saying it's a bad thing, just recognizing that these women offer a little more than a clothes hanger.
