Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Four

Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Four

Here's the final installment of  New York Fashion Week SS15. Overall, I'd say the regulars kept me captured but in terms of being fashion forward, there wasn't much that excited me. Anyway, here's a bit about the NY collections. Marc Jacobs, I like the inspiration. The oversized look is something that personally I don't like though. I liked the khaki and olive green outfits in the Ralph lauren collection, so unusual but with satin and embellishment it really makes the colour look rich. But the bright neon gowns looked great as well. I…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs

Fall 2014 RTW : J. Mendel, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs

This is one of the last fall collections from New York Fashion Week. Ralph Lauren was amazing but J. Mendel and Marc Jacobs were great too.   J. Mendel I just love how bright and colourful this collection is. Right off the bat, the coat sets the tone. It's all bold, edgy and very very wearable. I love the teal leather dress and the mesh/weave like gowns, so intricate. The draped gowns look very whimsical and I like how simple they look. Ralph Lauren I really love the colour palette here. The light…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein Collection and Marc Jacobs

Spring 2014 RTW at new York Fashion Week  : Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein Collection and Marc Jacobs The last collections for New York Fashion Week! For now the trends seem to go back to the 90's but overall my usual suspects were the ones I liked the most. Ralph Lauren This Ralph Lauren collection felt like a throwback to the previous ones. The black and white floral suits and dresses were a nice addition. When the pop of colour came threw, it was unexpected and made the collection more dynamic. The gowns in…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Sachin + Babi, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Elie Tahari

Spring 2014 RTW at New York Fashion Week : Sachin + Babi, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Elie Tahari   Sachin + Babi I always love Sachin+Babi collections for how forward and wearable they are. This one is no exception. The laser cut patterns give a lovely texture to the pieces. The suede jacket and embellished ones are also very beautiful.   Marc by Marc Jacobs Marc by Marc Jacobs, the slightly more afforable of the two lines is always a collection that's worthy of standing alone. I love the various prints used…Read more
Fall 2013 RTW : Calvin Klein Collection, Marc Jacobs and Marchesa

Fall 2013 RTW : Calvin Klein Collection, Marc Jacobs and Marchesa

  Calvin Klein Collection The Calvin Klein Collection has it's signature clean aesthetic. The waist was emphasized with a thinner belt but large buckle. i'm not too sure I liked that on every single look. The outerwear in this collection is superb with the broad sharp shoulders. The leather mix outfits looked great as well. The collection had typical fall palette of navy's, forest greens and black. A bit more variety would have been nice. That said, I absolutely love the teal dress with the pleated cut out skirt. It's the most jovial…Read more
Fashion 2013 RTW : Reem Acra, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch

Fashion 2013 RTW : Reem Acra, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch

Reem Acra Inspired by Japanese embroidery, Reem Acra's collection fits well into fall but also ties in what the designer does best. The opening cocktail dress with the bright red embroidery is gorgeous. The cocktail dresses are a smash but you are left breathless with you see the sheer beaded gowns. They catch your eye and anyone with a soft spot for sparkly things (like me) is instantly happy! The finale gowns with the large tulle are gorgeous as well.   Marc by Marc Jacobs The collection feels very wearable and rather simple…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Marc by Marc Jacobs

What a collection! I love it! The ethnic and fun. I simple love the scarves! I love the bright colour and scull prints. I love how wearable this collection is. The mix in prints; checks and floral is a nice touch. I love the pink finale dress and the purple jacket. This collection has a really fresh look, one much welcomed after the slightly disappointing fall collection.                                                    …Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacob's collection is such a treat. I love the bold optical looks. A true geek would know which ones look like the Doppler effect! I'm not sure I like the fringe like cuts. This collection is so significantly different from the rest, it offers a very bold style.                                                         Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more

Resort 2013 : Marc Jacobs

Like the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection, this one is loud and bold too. I lot of bright colours and prints mixed in together. Along with florals, and polka dots there are stripes in sequins and neon colours. In some ways the dresses towards the end resemble his Fall collection greatly. I would love to see the last gown worn by someone and do it justice. I also like the red and cobalt blue dress and blazer combo. I also like teh sequin striped tops. I think they are very loud and wearable.…Read more
Fall 2012 RTW : Marc by Marc Jacobs

Fall 2012 RTW : Marc by Marc Jacobs

Such a contrast from the Marc Jacobs show. But one thing seemed in line; rich fabrics and metallics. I absolutely loved all the blue metallic pieces. It reminds me of Essie's Aruba Blue, slightly more purple though. The opening dress had a noise pattern in bold contrast colours, gave the collection a edgy vibe from the beginning. Perhaps this collection will fare better than the heavily critiqued Marc Jacobs collection. Personally, I think the latter was more interesting to look at. But one thing is common, the mix of textures and patterns. Plaid…Read more
