Hooked: Strawberries

Not since Alexis Colby retired to her jewel box of a boudoir for her daily intake of champagne and strawberries has the luscious fruit had such a fashion moment. Last October, Stefano Pilati caused quite the stir at his YSL show by sending out a white floor-length flounced skirt with a huge strawberry print. It may have left a bad taste in some people’s mouths, but others, like the eternally stilettoed Carine Roitfeld, loved it. Meanwhile, another advocate of everyone’s favorite flavor of daiquiri almost went unnoticed. Tao Kurihara, the young protégé of Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo, offered an even larger strawberry print on the tart tops, snug dresses and capri pants of her spring collection. Suggestive without being vulgar, just the way we like it. At Yves Saint Laurent and Comme des Garçons stores.
