New York Fall / Winter 2006 Wrapup III

The NY shows are almost over! To be honest, I'm quite glad because I always thought European shows were more interesting. But anyways, trends are starting to emerge more obviously now. The color palettes are in the region of black, grey, white and navy, with a hint of dark purple and red. And yes, lots of interesting shapes.

Vera Wang
There werw a lot of wearable serpeate pieces, and a lot of pieces tightened around the waist area. Most of the collection was pretty, but I didn't like the cutting of some of them. Overall it wasn't a very remarkable NY collection. Though one thing about Vera Wang you can always depend on is that the dresses are guarenteed to be gorgeous.

Anna Sui
Even though Sui's palette was also pretty much in that black and navy region, her collection was still one of the most colorful so far. There are hints of SS06 Marc Jacobs and Balenciaga in the marching band-looking parts of the collection, and hints of SS06 Miu Miu in the white shift parts. Despite all these similarities, I suprisingly liked this collection, (I'm usually not all too enthusiastic about Sui's shows). For once, Sui's collection manages to look colorful and girly without sickenly sweet and flowery. I loooved the way Sui incorporated gold into some of the pieces at the beginning of the collection, and especially loved these ones:

Calvin Klein
The thing I really like about this collection is that the clothes actually have a very united theme. Costa used a lot of that arrow-like pattern, (don't know how to describe this but check out the first photo below.) Also, he used lots of chiffon for the dresses. The collection was Calvin Klein-y simple, down to earth, but still relatively more 'complicated' than previous collections.

Proenza Schouler
Some very cute pieces, but the whole collection wasn't all too special. I do love the outfits below though. They used a lot of thick lines to accentuate designs and some were done quite well, (see second picture below.) And again, there was an emphasis of cinching the waist in a structured manner. After looking through the whole collection, I still can't tell what age range the duo are designing for, oh well.

hmmm that calvin klein warrior-style pant is looking awfully interesting. Anna Sui rocks, as usual.

Not too excited about anything there. Those 'balloon' CK pants - I saw similar ones at Urban Outfitters that were elasticized at the bottom yesterday. They didn't look like they'd be very flattering, but those CK ones seem to work. Wondered if they were coming into style.

Love the first Miu Miu.

Very MK Olsen if you added boots or birks

Well, I don't actually think this is likely to have effect.
