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.

image image image image image image

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?

image image image

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.

image image image image image

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.

imageimageimage

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.

Structure Meets Elegant Haute Couture

With a Spring 2014 season, dominating the runways with Strutctural and Fresh yet Futuristic silhouettes, it’s no surprise that Haute Couture designer, Tony Ward, is incorporating this contiguous trend into his Spring Haute Couture collection. As Hunger Games and Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 inspired Geometric triangles give any gown pure structure. An outlined triangle adds extra excitement and suspense when it literally pops out in front of you. Ruffles and Peplum give Cocktail dresses and Gowns, a fun yet Elegant twist. And cutouts right below the bodice keep a Sparkling evening gown Modern, yet Elegant.
