Fall 2014 RTW : Marchesa, Anna Sui and Proenza Schouler

I’m in love with these three collections, Marchesa is back on the game this season and Anna Sui and Proenza Schouler collections are stunning as always.   Marchesa I was a horrid collection last spring but it’s quickly erased from my memory with this one. It’s very elegant, intricate and rich. I love the warm palette and the lace work. That blue dress with the draping is amazing. I think that ochre or mustard yellow colour is really going to be a trend, it looks stunning the way they’ve done...

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...

Fall 2014 RTW : Nanette Lepore, Lyn Devon and Reed Krakoff

Floored by the new Lyn Devon collection, but there’s also Nanette Lepore and Reed Krakoff! More fall collections from New York Fashion Week!   Nanette Lepore I’m loving the asymmetric hemline and the oxblood prints. There’s a lot of comfortable wearable clothes which is what I think the prime customers demand, I wish there was more punch to it though.   Lyn Devon THIS is how you do oversize in a wearable way. It’s clean, structured, you...

Fall 2014 RTW : Elie Tahari, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta

A very varied mix of collections from Elie Tahari, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta. They are stunning though! All from New York Fashion Week.   Elie Tahari It seems to capture every kind of dweller in New York. The clothes are very urban and wearable but some detail that makes it unique. I love the leather jackets and the green cape like coat. The tweed and leather mix dress is edgy and modern.     Pamella Roland There’s an undeniable geometric aspect to the...

Fall 2014 RTW : Narciso Rodriguez, Bibhu Mohapatra and Michael Kors

Love these fall collections from Narciso Rodriguez, Bibhu Mohapatra and Michael Kors!   Narciso Rodriguez There’s a a lot of well made tailored clothing, including the oversize ones. There’s that familiar colourblock scheme running through but the bright orange red pieces are stunning. The little dress with the silver sequins running through it also looks great.   Bibhu Mohapatra It’s the lines that create such a stunning effect in...

Fall 2014 RTW : Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang and Rodarte

This post features a Star Wars reference, how often can you do that in a fashion post? Well, unfortunately, it’s not in good taste. Here are the fall 2014 collections from Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang and Rodarte!     Badgley Mischka Such an incredible collection by the duo! Gold is back! There is so much intricate work, the gowns are stunning especially the finale one. The slinky antique gold sequin gown is gorgeous. I also liked the day pieces, leopard was incorporated tastefully. The high fur collars also add richness to the classic...

Fall 2014 RTW : Zac Posen, Donna Karan and Tory Burch

This season Zac Posen’s collection is really stunning. More fall collections from New York Fashion Week as well including Donna Karan and Tory Burch.   Zac Posen It was a very focused collection and very edited for Posen. It included incredible draping but not over done. The day tweed suits and dresses looked very tailored and fitted, it was a reprisal in a sense. The gowns all that volume look fit for the Met Gala. The coral gown with the draping is just so gorgeous, completely blown away by this...

Fall 2014 RTW : Naeem Khan, Wes Gordon and Marc by Marc Jacobs

Naeem Khan’s collection is fit for Beyonce and just so gorgeous! Also reviewing, fall collections by Wes Gordon and Marc Jacobs for his “less expensive” line.     Naeem Khan It felt very art deco in the beginning with the gold and black. That flowing gown in antique gold is gorgeous. The animal prints were done tastefully as well. I loved the slinky gowns with sequins in stripes, the taupe lilac one in particular is stunning! Then came out the fiery reds and the large florals, it’s a very glamorous collection, perfect for a...

Fall 2014 RTW : 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alice + Olivia and Reem Acra

More gorgeousness with fall collections from Phillip Lim, Alice + Olivia and Reem Acra at New York Fashion Week!     3.1 Phillip Lim There’s a boxy architecture on show which I’m not a fan of but I can appreciate it. I like the use of pastels for fall along with black. Some of the colour and texture blocking seemed to crude but there is a brown and black leather top which looks great as do the aqua pastel pants. Yes, there are certain pieces where I can find the appeal but overall, it’s not too exciting for...

Fall 2014 RTW : Carolina Herrera, Ohne Titel and Barbara Tfank

It’s long gone, but here are updates from New York fashion Week fall collections. Loved Carolina Herrera’s collection! Also reviewing Ohne Titel and Barbara Tfank.     Carolina Herrera I loved the separates here, it has a slight retro feel to it but it’s ‘ladylike’. I love the darker navy and burgundy pieces. That grey gown with the black sash is also very...

Fall 2014 RTW : The Row, Jenny Packham and Giulietta

Brilliant collections from The Row and Jenny Packham. Also on showcase is Giulietta at New York Fashion Week.     The Row There was a couture like finesse to the clothes and despite the odd shape as some might see it, it’s a remarkable collection. I love how the coats maintain a nice balance of structure and movement, they look incredibly comfortable as well! The propped up collar also looks so well made! I’m loving the grey wrap coat and the deep red suit.   Jenny...

Fall 2014 RTW : Diane von Furstenberg, Edun and Ralph Rucci

An iconic collection from Diane von Furstenberg celebrating her 40th anniversary along with collections from Edun and Ralph Rucci! More from fall collections at New York Fashion Week!   Diane von Furstenberg It was an ode to the iconic wrap dress which presented itself in prints, lace and all variations. It was timeless and I really like the magenta rosebud print. Things turned more glamourous towards the end with gold lace and more sensual as well. All in all it was more of a signature collection than a revolutionary...

Fall 2014 RTW : Thakoon, Vivienne Tam and Dennis Basso

More fall madness from New York Fashion Week. A very striking collection from Thakoon and beautiful work from Vivienne Tam and Dennis Basso.     Thakoon It’s almost like spring hit early for those who crave colour and florals. I love the blue and fuchsia print used although it’s rather generic. I do like the slim navy dress with the knitted top, that’s very chic. The knot at the waist is a nice trend. Vivienne...

More fabulous fall collections from New York Fashion Week. This time round, it’s DKNY, Jonathan Simkhai and Custo Barcelona!     DKNY It was a more inclusive show features real New Yorkers, very individual personalities on display but all wearing DKNY. You see the irony? Oh well, I love the fur used, the black coat and the little skirt. It adds more chic-ness to a edgy collection. I also love the way plaid and houndstooth patterns have been used, that blue coat is a...

Fall 2014 RTW : Yigal Azrouël, Lela Rose and Derek Lam

Amazing fall collections from Yigal Azrouël, Lela Rose and Derek Lam at New York Fashion Week. You can see more collections here.   Yigal Azrouël The genius is in the details. I love the zipper details on the sleeves. The pieces look so classic and yet there is that mix of textures and zipper carefully placed that update the look. I like the leather dress with seams running across. The biker style jacket with knit sleeves is another favorite. Overall, it’s a very urban...
