New York Fashion Week

Tis the season of the Big 4 Fashion Weeks starting with New York.

The collections I liked so far:

Lacoste was a surprise by going for something completely different. The crocodile disappeared in favor exciting colored prints.

Alexander Wang paid homage to the 60’s Hippie Culture of California.

Herve Leger mixed mini dresses with pants that hugged the body. The attitude of the looks was “if you want to be sexy, be sexy.”

Cushnie et Ochs veered toward the 90’s with some looks that would have been at home on BET Videos.

Yes, the Givenchy collection was sensual in black and white with direct influences to ladies slips and bedroom wear. I liked it but the hype surrounding the show the NYC made it hard to give an honest opinion.

Ralph Lauren was dependable, wearable moving from colors to western slim gaucho bottoms.

Victoria Beckham kept it simple but rich.

I liked some Prabal Gurung’s Nepal inspired looks especially the off the shoulder ones but the prints were equally intriguing.

Edun’s collection had an Art-Deco feel to it with vibrant colors.

Rag and Bone went with jackets, parkas, and sweater points with ankle lengths.

Reem Acra decided on the exotic with vivid colors teamed with short hemlines then moved to floor length knockout gowns.

Tommy Hilfiger island looks were classic fun.

Greg Lauren using denim cowgirl motifs with hats made for a sexy collection.

Jason Wu is moving in a new direction with Boss with more relaxed fresh looks that work for the day.

Proenza Schouer went for the tailored to the body with an emphasis on the waist.

Oscar de la Renta was inspired by Ava Gardner for a collection heavy with prints and red but I liked the bow looks.

Ralph Lauren had a stunning collection that was a mixture of breezy and sophisticated.
