New York Fashion Week is in full swing right now and some of the shows have been a bit lackluster for me. Usually I post my favorite shows, but I have only been interested in a few. Maybe I will post those. Anyway. I have been dying to show what I thought should be my shoe of the week.
Like I said in the other review post, the woman that these designers are creating clothes for is growing up. Even when she is edgy, she is mature in the way that she dresses. Honestly I think it is great, because women have to mature in their tastes and sense of style. That doesn’t mean that you can’t keep the same sense of style or taste. You just have to mature and embrace change. There are a lot of looks this season that are great for ladies who lunch, young business professionals, and those women that want to look pulled together without looking fussy. This post is going to be long, so I am going to break it up into little bits. Photos from Style.com.
Prabal Gurung’s latest collection is one of his best yet. He used bright color when he needed it and used neutrals when he needed to tone down things, and yet there was a balance between the two.
Jason Wu showed another wonderful collection. Another trend that I have noticed this season is the sheer look. I think it started at Richard Chai and moved on from there. So if you are comfortable going bare…DO IT!!!!
Z Spoke by Zac Posen is Zac Posen’s new lower-priced line that is aimed at young customers. This line still features loads of color and crazy prints, and is young and flirty. While I do think Crystal Renn’s weight is her business, she was looking a little hungry (no pun intended) as she walked in this show.
Doo.Ri’s collection was beautiful and ghostly. Sometimes mostly white collections can get to be a little boring, but this one was full of one beautiful piece after another.
With A Détacher, Mona Kowalska created a collection that reminds me of fall. It irks me when designers design for the wrong season, but this collection actually looks really good.
Alexander Wang showed a dark, dark, dark collection last season, but this season he decided to go the lightest light he could go. Like Doo.Ri show, the clothes were mostly white with a few muted colors sprinkled in the mix. The whole collection was very natural.
Jason Wu, of Michelle Obama inauguration dress fame, showed a beautiful collection full of bright colors and flattering shapes. Check out more pics here at Jezebel.
I was going to write about BCBG, but I was bored with it. You find it here.
I didn’t really like the Charlotte Ronson show either. I did manage to like one or two dresses but I felt like I had seen them before somewhere.I found them on RackedNY.
Sorry if I don’t really show pictures of ones that I don’t like.
I went to Style.com and found some more great shows.
Peter Som was very colorful for a fall show but I still liked it.
Monique Lhuillier was very gothic, but at least it looked fall like.
Last night I went to the Western Ball and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. They had some random band playing every now and then, but the real entertainment was Marc Anthony. His set of hot salsa songs was so good. I wanted to dance, and I don’t even like to dance. He even brought J. Lo out for a song and they were not acting like they were seperating at all. I also saw a few actors like Blair Underwood and Hayden Panittiere. The best part of the night was when Joe Biden and his wife came out to speak and dance. Then, after about 30 mins,the Army band came out on stage and the flags were brought out. The Obamas had arrived and everyone went crazy. He talked about change,not surprised, and then they danced. They are such a beautiful couple. I want a marriage as loving and caring as that. Michelle wore a dress and coat ensemble by Isabel Toledo during the day and at the balls she wore Jason Wu.
