‘Tis the season to crave ultra-cozy knits, and Eviana Hartman of Bodkin didn’t disappoint on that front when she trotted out her eco-conscious Fall/Winter 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday night. Hartman drew inspiration from 1951-52, a painting by abstract-expressionist Clyfford Still that appears as a scarred, blackened canvas at first glance but gradually resolves into a landscape of dueling textures and tones.

“Everything reminds of Eviana,” says designer Samantha Pleet says of Bodkin’s fall collection.

“Everything reminds me of Eviana,” designer Samantha Pleet, Hartman’s former partner, told Ecouterre between sips of Kombucha. “It’s very snuggly.”

But a fashion show isn’t a matter of simply pulling on clothes. Backstage, Tata Harper plied the models with organic mini-facials and aromatherapy treatments. A team from Abba Pure Performance Hair Care conspired with Hartman to create artfully disheveled tresses for the “everyday eco-chic girl” using botanically based styling products. And to give the girls that fresh, not-quite-made-up glow, Hartman relied on MAC Cosmetics’ minerals line.
