Oh gosh yesterday's shows were so much better than the ones from previous days. There are simply too many pretty looks for me to blog them all in here! Some trends are starting to show up more obviously, like nautical, b&w polka dots and lovely dresses of many sorts.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Marc is one of the only shows in NY that I ever look foward to. I simply love the combination of trendy casualness with a perfect touch of girliness. I absolutely ADORED this collection: Marc went for a chic mix of nautical and ballerina, which is refreshing from all the serious-looking, pretty spring-ish dresses seen in other shows so far.
The show opens with a typical Marc look -huge buttons prominent.
One of my fav looks in this collection -such a cool ballerina look!
Coat over dress -a trend carried off from AW05.
Subtle layering in all white, so simple yet not quite. And pencil skirt trend carries on with a casual feel.
A very teenage-look made special by the layering tops.
Pretty nautical dress made edgy by the side-shoulder bag.
And lots and lots of layering...
Matthew Williamson is one of the few designers who moved his fashion show from London to New York, hoping to expand his market. Like Temperley, Williamson did a fantastic job. His signature silk dresses really stood out. In addition, lots of casual high society casual looks (such as those worn by people who work for Tatler, the British high society magazine,) were also present.
Amazing in a eye-catching way. Can you see how the silk simply flies around the model?
Stunning in a sheer elegant way. The design is so intricate on an otherwise simple ivory dress.
These two are perfect examples of Williamson's casual high society ladies-look. You can see the classy way the shorts are worn and the subtlly superior materials that make up the whole outfit.
Rodriguez presented a monochrome collection of mostly dresses -all black, white and grey/ dull silver. The dresses were simple, comfortable and swayed beautifully around the models.
I love this dress simply because of its simplicity and the subtlties of its details (such as the bottom hem).
Something that a woman who possesses a comfortable, innate elegance would wear because she would automatically attract attention without using ornaments.Roland Mouret
Mouret's collection is may seem alike Rodriguez's at first glance, but they are actually different. Alike is the color scheme used, but different in that Mouret's designs are much more feminine and structurally tailored.
The tailoring of these two outfits is amazing -from the top to the bottom, everything is perfectly planned out. I esp like the grey dress -cool and feminine altogether.
