Nanette Lepore has an interesting Mars and Earth theme while Rachel Zoe has an equestrian collection. New York Fashion Week with these two powerhouses looked splendid along with J. Mendel’s chic collection.
Nanette Lepore explored what it would be like if living on Mars wasn’t a distant dream, but a reality. The result, is quite staggering. Using colours and patterns to symbolize Mars and earth, the slightly space themed collection was anything but distant. The style was from the future but the silhouettes on par with today’s modern outtake. I love the iridescent work with the black. Earthy colours had more blue in them and the army like pattern looked great.
Rachel Zoe’s collection has a very classy and equestrian feel to it. You have separates in knits and leather in beautiful tans and browns. The collection, overall is very complementary universally. I love the gray knit jumper with sequined sleeves. I also like the burgundy pantsuit.
J. Mendel presents a modern fall collection with velvet gowns, leather and furs. I love the finale white velvet gown. The silhouette is so amazing it looks like liquid pearls. The sleek white cocktail dresses are pretty stunning as well. The brown dress with the sequins and detailing on the bodice, like many others is the highlight of the collection.
