Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Two

Hello people! here's the second installment of Spring 2015 RTW New York Fashion Week! You can catch up with part one here.   I'll come out and say it, I'm not the biggest fan of the active wear Alexander Wang aesthetic. I don't necessarily get it. But I do recognize certain collections, like last season's that was spectacular. This one in comparison is a bit uninspiring and feels too literal. The canvas shoe dresses and heavy beaded tops look great on first glance but not very wearable. I do however, like the crop…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Christian Siriano and Mara Hoffman

Fall 2014 RTW : Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Christian Siriano and Mara Hoffman

New York Fashion Week with Hervé Léger where there's always a new take on the bandage dress and Mara Hoffman who has great prints; colour me excited!   Hervé Léger by Max Azria There's a flat out bandage dress in this collection, but it's about the cage dress. More wearable bondage dress perhaps? Either way, it's incredibly flattering and sexy. I loved the cuts and straps, it's all done without going over the top. I generally don't like fringe and didn't like it much here either. The dresses with the embellishment look very futuristic…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Nicole Miller, Jill Stuart and Mara Hoffman

Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Nicole Miller, Jill Stuart and Mara Hoffman   Nicole Miller Nicole Miller's fantastic is being lauded as a revolution. And rightly so, you can see it in the mixture of loud prints which look enticing and even a rather print-shy person like me would like to wear them. Stripes with florals is certainly a trend this season. The kaleidoscopic cuts and shapes look brilliant. I also like the draping in some pieces but there are also well tailored ones for those who prefer something…Read more
Fall 2013 RTW :  Libertine, Mara Hoffman and Hervé Léger By Max Azria

Fall 2013 RTW : Libertine, Mara Hoffman and Hervé Léger By Max Azria

The next three collections were presented at New York Fashion Week and are so different from the collections seen before. These have spunk, more colours, textures and it's a brilliant melange. Libertine This collection really impressed me. You will hear this a told in this post! The embellished skull print is a great spin on the trend although, it is getting rather old now. Have skull run their course? But there were plenty of other things to marvel at; the mix of prints which look scary and beautiful together. The inspirations are obvious,…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Mara Hoffman

Mara Hoffman;s collection has beautiful prints in it. With ALOHA spelled out, you know where it's inpired from. But the silhouettes show more than that. You have comfy pants, dresses with cut outs and gorgeous swimwear. I like the colourful repeatable print, it takes you to a different place alltogether. The long thread pieces  are pretty great as well. The like the opening look and the maxi dresses in the collection. One of the most optical ones is the long dress with the hoops (or loops) print. It looks stunning.      …Read more
