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!!!!!

image image image image

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.

image image image image image

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.

image image image image

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

image image image image

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.

image image image image image

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!!!

image image image image

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.

image image image image

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.

image image image

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.

21. Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Shaped Handbags

image image image image image image

When I first laid my eyes on Marc by Marc JacobsFall 2013 collection, I instantly fell in love with the 1970s inspired collection. With the perm like hair, bright colors, exciting prints, plaid, and the shaped bags. Everything, just perfect. The shaped bags were definitely a big accessory favorite. Coming in shapes of squares, rectangles, and circles, and in colors of a tangerine, red, tan, black, and some in plaid. Just bringing back such a Chic, vintage vibe that I just really fall for. When I was younger, I used to have a circular suit that was pink and had “Barbie” written all over it in big, white bold letters. So it’s just really nice to see the Chic, shaped bags come back in.

For Spring, Sportmax took a Sweet route with an array of polka dotted ensembles in: Black, White, and my favorite Ballet Pink. And the models all sported Beautiful opened toe pumps in shades of: Black, White, Emerald, and Ballet Pink with none other than a cotton ball on the top of the pump. A pair of shoe I dream of owning.

Many designers this season have been going more feminine, Romantic and Sweet routes this season, the polka dots at Sportmax, really bring a reminscene to Marc JacobsLouis Vuitton collaboration with Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. That was all things polka dots.

Simone Rocha Spring 2014

image image image image

For Spring, Simone Rocha gives Classy and Ladylike styles, a Fun and Edgy twist. In a way, mixing the edgy and feminine styles showed off by the people of Great Britain. Rocha begins her collection, with Beautiful LBDs with ruffles of many styles, which have been seen a lot throughout London and New York Fashion Week. As designers are really putting their own zests on Traditonal feminine dresses.

image image image image

Rocha even puts cutouts into her LBDs for a really edgy and bold feel. The models are also sporting pearl  and lace chokers, and very feminine dresses towards the end, really making me think of Coco Chanel, with a more Marie Antoinette, Victorian like twist.
