Spring 2013 RTW : Escada

Escada's spring collection is bold very graphic this season. But at the same time, it's not as rich or heavy as the other seasons. I love the heavy sequin and fringe jacket. The muted yellow dress is a gorgeous colour and looks really elegant. The black sheer floral gown is really soft and beautiful. The wide leg pants in that colour are so flattering. There isn't a lot of opulence but the clothes are still great.                                  …Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Organic by John Patrick

John Patrick's collection was a resurgence of his previous works but with more options this time, I believe. There were a lot of different textures to differentiate between the white. There are some very wearable separates. The olive grey top and shorts look really unique in its simplicity and design. I do like the layered white which gives it the sheer and opaque cuts in the same piece. This is not a style or aesthetic I'm not fond of but there was a lot of careful design in the collection nonetheless.    …Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Rachel Comey

Rachel Comey's collection is quite stunning. A lot of prints and symmetrical embroidery; they do look great together. I love the opening white dress with the patchwork and embroidery on the front. The blue and black dress with with the bright lights (as I like to call them) looks like an optical illusion. That is the best one of them all. There's also a nice range of swimwear and cocktail dresses with applique.                                   Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more

Spring 2013 RTW : Tanya Taylor

Tanya Taylor's second collection has evolved a lot. Neon coral separates, clean cut silhouettes and the look softened with florals. I like the jacket with florals and black edges. The dresses with the cut out waist look really great. And I'm in love with the two toned polka dots! I love it when they are done subtle. Overall, I think this collection has a lot of wearable and modern clothes.                         Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more

Spring 2013 RTW : Juan Carlos Obando

Juan Carlos Obando has beautifully crafted dresses in his Spring collection. The silhouette with an hourglass shape look very elegant. I love the prints used in the collection. The graphics are sketched by Obando himself. The ultramarine blue is certainly eye catching. It's a very modern collection but it retains an amount of simplicity and ease that many woman would appreciate.                     Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more

Spring 2013 RTW : Gryphon

Gryphon's spring collection shows a very athletic and tough persona. A lot of separates and active wear is showcased here. But the clothes themselves have florals and graphics. I love the floral peacoat in the light blue green. The jackets in this collection are the highlight. I liked the purple patterned mini skirt and the ombre blue t-shirt.                                     Image Credit | Complete CollectionRead more

Spring 2013 RTW : Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriquez has a very sharp and on trend collection. It has a very contrast colour scheme in blacks and whites. I love the clothes here. One of the standout pieces was the white high neck dress with peplum drape on the sides. There are also gorgeous wide leg pants. Tweed accents are also featured in the later part of the collection. A women who has a sharp and clean sense of style would find this collection very comfortable. The finale gown with the cut out back looks very simple and elegant. The…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Gary Graham

The first show of New York Fashion Week 2013! Gary Graham's style is very boho in spring. There are  a lot of prints and a variety of fabrics and textures together. It's all put together brilliantly. The sheer soft fabrics in earthy colours and patterns are paired together with white. Another feature here is the draping. I love the black top with the symmetrical draping. A lot of the separates with asymmetrical drapes look really great. The collection has incredibly unique pieces. People looking for more seasonal and Persian influences with clothes will…Read more

Spring 2013 RTW : Thakoon Addition

Thakoon's Addition line portrays spring in a very care-free and edgy way. The colours are mainly in blue and orange hues with variations in softness. Some of the separates have a lot of mix match of different textures while some like the peach ruffle maxi are so light and flowy. It's quite remarkable that even people with distinct clothing choices would identify with a lot in this collection. I love the lazer cut patterns adopted in separates. The vermilion skirt looks amazing. Ruffles and two-tone are featured a lot along with subtle ruffle…Read more
