Jason Wu Makes his Debut at Hugo Boss

Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Anna Wintour front row, a garden like scenery, and Supermodel Stella Tennant making a runway appearance; you know that this is a coveted show. After many seasons of a coveted Hugo Boss show at Berlin Fashion Week, Jason Wu takes the helm at Hugo Boss, moving the Berlin venue, all the way across the Atlantic to New York City. Wu’s first collection at Hugo Boss was most definately not a slip; as there seemed to be this such sleek, Chic polish throughout the collection. As the looks in the collection are very wearable, extremely well-tailored, and not too Preppy to the extreme.

Preppy and Feminine Accents Get Punk at Vera Wang

As a Lover for Preppy and Feminine styles, I was super psyched to see Vera Wang give my favorite staples an edge. A trend that has been seen on the runways ever since the Spring 2014 shows back in September, has most definately become the memo here at Wang. As floral prints get dyed black. Argyle and Plaid edge up, with leather. And ruffles, chiffon, and lace go gothic.

A Weekend Runway Rundown, (Well Sort Of)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Adam Lippes Mixes Comfy with Schoolgirl in his Debut Pre-Fall collection

Designing his debut Pre-Fall collection, Adam Lippes takes inspiration from the schoolgirl uniform, mixing it with elements such as outerwear, showing how you can look Classy and stay warm this Fall season. As ugg boots definately aren’t the only option when staying warm this winter season. Lippes pairs a blue Oxford, underneath a fur jacket for a Preppy and Cozy vibe, while a black silk top and pants get paired for that decadate Sleepwear look for a comfortable night out. A traditional menswear inspired blouse gets a feminine feel with sheer sleeves, and a more masculine feel when paired with black trousers. And an LBD gets bundled up, while making a statement when 6 inches above the ankle, in a silk fabric, and paired with Fendi Spring 2013 inspired pumps. Definately making me want to cuddle up on the couch with a Cup of Hot Cocoa.
