so here it is- my Runway Recap Part 2, the second half of NYFW. the best of the best... enjoy xo
BAND OF OUTSIDERS- if the Amish did Fashion Week.
10 CROSBY BY DEREK LAM- gonna be a huge hit in the big shops like Saks, Barneys etc. Derek Lam at a lower price point. definitely something to look forward to.
CREATURES OF THE WIND- doesn't this collection seem very Balenciaga-esque? love the mix of coloring, the crop top, the lace overlay skirt, the draping- all of it. if you were rolling up to Lincoln Center @ FW, this is what I would expect to see editors and the like wearing. a girl can dream.
DIESEL BLACK GOLD- how gorgeous is the pink suede jacket? the metallic pants and jackets are really hot, i would totally rock this trend. side note: coated jeans are really big for THIS FALL. perhaps this is a continuation for Spring 2012??
DKNY- super easy to wear and appeals to the masses for sure. loving the red/blue combination, very Proenza.
DOO. RI- super chic. my favorite piece is the 2nd dress. it's very sexy but the fact that it's jersey makes it more casual. thigh high slits are a "do" in my book.
HERVE LEGER- gladiator meets dominatrix meets Helen of Troy? i have no idea, but Herve never ceases to amaze me. definitely a favorite collection for Spring 2012. my favorite shoes i've seen on the runway this season yet.
KEVORK KILEDJIAN- my new favorite color combination: army green and (more) fuchsia. i love when everything you see on a runway can be worn in real life. i would buy this entire collection if i could. definitely in my top favorite collections from NYFW. the sequin leggings???? wow.
MARCHESA- ethereal, out of this world beauty. i can't even choose a favorite. i will most likely wear Marchesa on my wedding day. (god willing i find a potential husband, fingers crossed).
MARA HOFFMAN- her collection for Spring, entitled "Mara Mexicana" is definitely that. i'm a huge fan of hers, mainly because i can afford to buy her pieces, and of course because she's the queen of prints... and i'm a printy kind of gal.
MICHAEL KORS- i was floored by this collection. wow o wow o wow. unbelievable accessories, shoes, hair, the tie dye.... i love everything about this. it's strange- i always match up Michael Kors and Donna Karen in my head as being very much on similar levels and their Spring collections for 2012 were very parallel. they were the only 2 designers to go the tribal route, but man do i love the results. um hello snakeskin trench coat, lets be friends.
