New York Fashion Week SEP 2013 // Best of DAY 7 & 8

Friday, September 13, 2013

The last days of New York Fashion Week were a blast! My favourite (as always) was Milly NY's collection! Loved the colours, the silhouettes, the details! So feminine and fabulous!

"It was all black and white and neon with pops of bright-bright floral for the Milly Spring 2014 show. There was a sporty feeling throughout everything, from the mesh tops and skirts to the lightweight bomber jackets that were thrown over many a look. Honeycombed see-through pieces were worn over neon yellow, pink, or orange bloomers and bras, and the prints that stalked the runway were technicolor blooms at their best. Still, the athletic look had its ladylike side. Silhouettes like the high-waisted pencil skirt, swing jacket, and poufed midi skirt were everywhere, and the styling stayed in the same vein (think top-handle bags, gloves, and retro eyeglasses)." fashionologie

Proenza Schouler's collection were all about "shiny metallic strips (...) this collection included a lot of shiny elements, including metallic knits, floral necklaces, and business-card-size buttons on a few well-tailored, serene-looking coats." fashionologie

"It's not a Rachel Zoe collection without sequins or a little animal print, but while those elements remained a constant for Spring '14, they weren't the standouts. Not surprisingly, there were heavy '70s references, but the designer covered new ground with a lineup of denim separates and sharper cuts in all white that are pretty major." fashionologie

"Gilles Mendel's Spring 2014 collection for J.Mendel was unapologetically gamine - but also unapologetically luxurious. Mendel was inspired by Serge Gainsbourg's song "Cargo Culte," the final track on the album The History of Melody Nelson." fashionologie

"It's hard not to fall in love with Marchesa Spring '14. Frothy, delicate, romantic — isn't that what love is supposed to be? Such was the lineup Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig sent down the runway, featuring lace, tulle, and embroidery. Dresses that seemed to hover over curves (and never hug too tightly), pencil skirts, and yes, even cropped, boxy tops — we were given the most delicate treatments so that each piece seemed to quite literally float down the runway. The only exception, when the collection veered from downright lovely to sexier fare, may have been a slinky gown crafted in beaded fringe. But even when the show turned from bubbly, fairy-tale confections to black lace, romance was still at play in embroidered floral accents." fashionologie
