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

Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part Three

So I took a bit of a break from the fashion posts, but they're here to stay! New York Fashion Week is long gone and while a lot of collections failed to make a mark, The Row just floored everyone.  Here are some of the collections. Alice + Olivia is a collection I always look forward to. I love the contemporary and influence of retro styles. The prints and laces dresses look amazing. Reem Acra's gowns are stunning with the metallic sheer gowns and embellishments. Zac Posen had a relatively modest collection with…Read more

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

Spring 2015 RTW : New York Fashion Week : Part One

So New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 RTW is almost at the end there have been some really great shows so far. I really liked Escada and the bright colours and prints used. Halston Heritage has such a sleek and modern collection. I love the silhouettes. There's always something to look forward to at a Monique Lhuillier show and the pastel lace gown is just incredible. I could just watch those gowns all day and feel at peace. BCBG Maz Azria has a bit of  a shabby chic thing going on but I…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Marchesa, Anna Sui and Proenza Schouler

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 it.   Anna…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
Fall 2014 RTW : Nanette Lepore, Lyn Devon and Reed Krakoff

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 aren't drowning in the clothes, I love it! I really like the choice of colours, there's…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Elie Tahari, Pamella Roland and Oscar de la Renta

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 clothes. The shimmering silver sequin pants with…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Narciso Rodriguez, Bibhu Mohapatra and Michael Kors

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 this collection. Inspired by topology you can sense the earthy hues but the silhouettes are by themselves very strong. I love the first look…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang and Rodarte

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…Read more
