Back to New York Fashion Week, which ends on the 17th.
Zac Posen really did a great job of editing his collection. I think his mind is overly creative and flamboyant, which makes editing and figuring out what pieces work extremely hard. This collection showcases his flamboyance but it is magical. I love the silky fabrics, and the way he mixed all the colors together. I think bright colors and painterly/graphic patterns are really going to be big trends for the spring. I am also seeing a feather boa used as a coat/vest contraption too.
Chris Benz is another designer who got the bright colors/feather boa memo, as well. His collection looks easier to wear than Posen but it is still great. I also like how he mixed textures. There are ruffles, feathers, and solids. The ruffle and the polka dot was featured heavily in his collection as well sequins. Apparently that trend isn’t going away anytime soon ladies.
I remember yesterday when everyone at the Marc Jacobs show was twittering. They kept saying the theme is Geishas. Everyone let out a collective “HMMMMM…” Well I can tell that Marc’s inspiration was definitely Asian. The garments were ruffled, silky, and some were extremely geometric. I also liked how he did the exposed undergarment thing again, except this time it seemed more put together. The colors range from very muted neutrals to a deep blue and red. I can’t see myself wearing the clothes or the shoes from this collection, but I can definitely see the beauty in it…. I guess? I don’t it. I guess I just expect more from Marc.
