More Fashion Week Review Madness

The clothes from Band of Outsiders was very preppy, which is perfectly ok because it was full of the preppy basics that aren’t bland and hold your attention. This is what brands like Abercrombie and American Apparel should be selling.

Cynthia Rowley started out light and moved into the dark with a collection that was very Cynthia Rowley, yet different at the same time.

Juan Carlos Obando has to be my favorite collection so far. It is classy, it is sophisticated,  and it is glamour. These looks will get you ready for any cocktail party or gala.

Lacoste was amazing, not just because they used a lot of black models, but because Lacoste designer Christophe Lemaire bowed out of his final season with the brand in beautiful way. The clothes, which reminded me of a modern Great Gatsby was perfectly Lacoste.

The girls at Ohne Titel make edgy clothes. They are things that modern and fresh. The clothes are perfect for the girl that doesn’t want to have to deal with pomp and fluff.
