I’ve been following the shows at New York’s rather snowy fashion week where designers are showcasing their ready-to-wear Fall collections. Although it’s not over yet I thought I’d do a bumper edition of the shows that I’ve liked so far.
Tory Burch’s collection struck me for its elegant femininity, featuring Art Nouveau patterns and colours. I think the last dress (bottom right) would make a truly beautiful wedding dress.
True to form, Mara Hoffman presented a collection of bright colours and bold patterns. I love that she is not afraid of daring combinations.
Suno’s collection was noteworthy for its details – whether it was an interesting silhouette, a high collar or a surprising pairing of prints.
Carolina Herrera’s collection brought a little 1940’s glamour to the runway with fur trims, tightly-waisted dresses and victory-roll coifs.
Marc by Marc Jacobs collection was flirty and fun – replete with big hair and red lips.
Diane von Furstenberg made the most of the female form with her trademark wrap tailoring. Love the leather collar and cuff detail on the first dress.
Thakoon Addition’s easy boyish collection charmed the pants off me. It’s quite something to make boxy shapes beautiful.
Jil Sander Navy’s collection was one of the most wearable. I thought the sophisticated colour palette of charcoal, dusty pink, white, and warm earthy tones was a sure winner.
Samantha Pleet’s whimsical collection with soft colours and ruffled collars.
