A Weekend Runway Rundown, (Well Sort Of)

image image image

Designer, Peter Som, kicked off Friday, with none other than a vibrant collection of: Mixing Prints of all kinds, Elegant silhouettes, and of course feathers.

Jason Wu is most definitely a fashion genius!!!! Having designed Michelle Obama’s inaugural Ball Gown, both in 2009 and in 2013, the designer presents a collection showing none other than Rich Hues and Silhouettes for none other Pure Luxury. And who better to open than Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima?

Yeehaw!!!!!! The Cushnie et Ochs Gal hits the countryside in the most Luxurious fashion. Or as my mom’s boyfriend would say, Texas Style!!!!!

I have always seemed to be fond of Rag & Bone’s Fall collections, and Friday’s collection was most definitely no exception. This Fall, Rag & Bone girl takes a hike in style. With her olive checkered print trench, red boots, feathered handbag, and striped blazer; she’s also just as ready to hit the streets of Manhattan.

A mix of more than a 1,000 textures of fabric, prints of many kinds being combined, and a pop of my favorite hue, (especially in honor of Valentine’s Day), Red. A flawless Helmut Lang collection is born.

Very vibrant tribal prints, plaids, and swirls dared to leave us all a lasting impression, Friday, at Suno.

Reminding me of Friday’s Helmut Lang collection, Prabal Gurung also seems to mix many different textures and prints together, seen at his show, Saturday afternoon. The only difference: Gurung incorporates tribal prints, Luxurious fabrics (thinking on the line of silk and feathers), more Dramatic and Vibrant hues, (aka some of my favorites, Navy and Tangerine), and bangled pumps, which are all that wearable on the beaches of Thailand as they would be for an evening cocktail on a Winter’s night in New York City.

Jill Stuart gives her signature feminine staples, a more Punk feel. When the Classic LBD and panty hose get bedazzled, a Furred red trench layers a sleeveless leather LBD, and a brown striped fur jacket and a Grapefruit knit sweater get edgy with baggy leather pants and wedges. Making me thank Stuart for the perfect inspiration to give my feminine wardrobe a little bit of a dramatic edge.

Fringe? Check! Feathers and Fur? Check! A Sexy bodice? Check! Knee high boots and wedges? Check! Sexy Sparkles and cutouts on Evening Gowns? Check! Rounding up for another Spectacular Herve Leger show? Of Course!!!!

Lacoste Creative Director, Felipe Oliveira Baptista, puts Preppy styles of plaid, argyle, moccasins, and Tweed to the test; mixing them with baggy silhouettes, rich and bold hues, and the signature Sporty elements of the Lacoste House.

image image image image

Joseph Altuzarra has yet to discover me fantasizing about wearing pretty much every single piece from his collection. From the Equestrian Boots, to those colorblocked fur coats, the Vibrantly hued fringe cocktail dresses, to those Elegantly colorblocked trench coats; I’m left Speechless.

The most notable Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano, gives 1940s silhouettes a more modern twist; with futuristic inspired prints, rich hues, and a wonderful mix of textures.

image image image image image image image

With the mixture of colors and textures, pockets in tweed, cutouts in a Trench, and a Merry-Go-Round of Supermodels, ranging from Caroline Trentini to Karlie Kloss; Alexander Wang has left us with none other than the memo of: Fashion is Ready for the Future!!!

After big changes at Kate Spade New York, (see Style.com for the full story), comes a collection filled with Bright, fun hues of Kelly Green, Cobalt, Navy, & Red, an array of fun clutches, and some of my favorite prints of leopard, flowers, and of course: Plaid. Which if you are just as obsessed as I am with Kate Spade, the collection will last you way into those Sunny Spring days of May.

At Delpozo an array of Plaid and Pastel gowns begin to fill the runway, resulting in a finale filled with Glamorous shimmer and sheen.

Yigel Azrouël gives my Plaid, Geometrics, and an Elegant Black Evening Gown this Chic City Grunge.

Public School NYC left me pretty obsessed with their Preppy tweeds, and rich hues, giving them that perfect New York City edge, and the beanies make me think Cara Delevingne.

image image image image image

Victoria Beckham gives your favorite basic, neutral hues a Chic twist; in the style of a Trench, in futuristic prints, and with my favorite: ruffles.

Mary Katrantzou Spring 2014

image image image image

Mary Katrantzou begins her Stunning Spring collection using many different shades, (mostly brights), and textures and mixing them with others. Creating many very Fun, Bold, and also a little Edgy looks but still with a Feminine and Ladylike vibe.

image image image image

The end of Katrantzou’s collection was absolutely Stellar. Collaborating with Swarovski Jewels, Katrantzou sends out models in Beautiful floral printed, (Swarovski bedazzled), dresses. Each with their own fun flare, like ruffles, a fun full skirt, or in a Unique and Sexy strapless style. The dresses, perfect for any occasion like Going out, paired with a white Caridgan for a Formal Wedding or Party, or even when vacationing.

5. Michael Kors Googles

image image image image

 

Karmen Pedaru, Simon Nessman, Daria Strokous, Maria Bradley, and ? Show off 4 of the many styles of googles from Michael Kors’ Fall 2013 show.

Who says that googles are made just for skiing? That’s definitely not the case, as Michael Kors gives his googles, which debuted at his Spring 2013 show, a Chic, Fall and Sporty twist. The best part is that their so versatile! The googles, coming in either black and white and covering the eyebrows, look perfect paired casually or dressed up. Definitely adding quite a Chic edge to any look. I just love how the goggles give off such a Sporty vibe, yet it doesn’t look like I’ve been in a science lab all day.

Beautiful and Feminine Staples at Elie Saab Resort 2014

The Always feminine and Classy Elie Saab, still used his signature Sparkly evening gowns and feminine staples in his Resort 2014 collection, but he added a little bit of a Chic but so feminine edge to it with the high low hemline, and even little cutouts in some of his dresses. So Chic!
The collection showed off three main colors: Black and White, Tangerine, and Black in pieces throughout Elie Saab’s collection. Each in different styles. First, came the black and white ensembles, those mainly high low hemline dresses and pants. And a black dress with white only at the sleeves. And some Sexy cutouts made in fine lines on very sheer fabrics. Then to add a bit femininity to the collection, Saab designed an array of Beautiful black dresses with lots of lace, some with full skirts others with peplum, and some Sexy and skin tight. After that came a Chic nude pant suit with a train starting in the back, and a nude dress with cutouts showing in them, welcoming a Beautiful array of tangerine dresses. Starting from simple, more work appropriate to Beautiful floor length evening gowns, many with Sparkles, Lace, and in a sheer fabric. Definitely the perfect collection for any women at any age, and for the feminine girl who wants just a tiny bit of edge. So Feminine, Beautiful, and Chic at the same time.

Here are some of my favorite looks:
