New York FW07 Fashion Week Wrapup III

More fashion from New York!

Proenza Schouler
The designer duo made a fab collection, and it (thankfully) looked nothing like the recent collection they designed for Target. Most of the models wore hats, which completely covered the faces of most models, but it really makes you focus on the clothes.

I'm not going to go into their influences for this collection, but I feel the need to say how much I dislike the coats and jackets (like the one on the left above,) which are made of a few different materials. But I do like the combination of t-shirt and silk top with the wide-leg pants (in the photo on the right.) It's such a casual chic combo.

The thing that really caught my eye in this collections were the dresses. I love how it's sheer in some places, but there are ribbon-like fabric covering the chest and skirt area.

Vera Wang

At first glance, I really didn't like this collection. But on the third glance (such faith I have in Wang!), the collection really started to appeal to me. Even though the whole Russian theme seemed a bit FW04 to me, everything was so pretty and girly I couldn't resist.

Sigh, look at these slightly-babydoll-slightly-schoolgirl looks. They're soo adorable.

I just realised that two of the few Vera Wang outfits were modelled by Vlada (middle). She really suits this whole Russian babydoll look, doesn't she? Ooh, and I love that dress on her. It's so pretty how it's like an embelished t-shirt dress with extra details, like the see-through fabric around her arms.

I'm not usually a poka-dots fan, but the silver, polka-dot dress (right) looks fantastic. Wouldn't that be perfect for a cute dinner dress (maybe with a black cardigan over it)?

J. Mendel

I wasn't really interested in the whole J. Mendel collection, but a few of the dresses were really pretty in a simple, yet with some details way, (like the two above).

Zac Posen

Ahh, I'm not a big fan of Posen to be honest, esp those huge dresses of his. But I just realised that he designs amazing suits. I love the three looks below, all of which would be so perfect for a stylish working girl. Seriously, can you imagine going to work looking that fabulous?

I love Vera Wang's collection. I like how feminine it is in a non-stereotypical way. Dark colors but so pretty.

Vera Wang is the best. Love the creative layers and subtle colors. The most inspiring FW07 thus far.

And what, pray, do you find so offensive about the Proenza Schouler for Target line?

Yeah... what's so bad about the collection for Target?

Being an avid thrift shopper, I see tons of the so-called Target "designer" items at Goodwill, and they are hideous. I wouldn't buy them at Target, nor at half-price at a thrift shop. Absolute kitsch.

I really love Proenza Schouler's 20's flapper-style hats!! I want one (only a version that doesn't cover my eyes). And the first outfit of theirs to the far right, the one with the slouchy trousers and t-shirt and bustier, is so awesomely cool that I am going to go out and copy it piece for piece. I also loved all of the Zac Posen outfits you posted! Not a huge fan of Vera's new collection but all the coats are beautiful. Bring on the cold weather!

Gold tights are kitsch, but I don't see anyone complaining about the Balenciaga show. Just because it's cheap does not mean that it's in bad taste.

I just didn't like the collection Proenza Schouler designed for Target. It has nothing to do with the fact that it's cheap, which btw, I have actually bought clothes from designer collaborations with Target before. I just didn't like the collection. Maybe because it was so summery-looking and I've just been into darker things. But hey, everyone has different taste.

I think the whole "haute couture for the masses" thing is rather condescending, no matter where it's being tried. It's a poor facsimile of the real thing, and I think most people are smart enough to realize that. I have never understood why a famous designer would consent to a relationship with a store that sells irons, dog food and the like.... ??? So the little people can have the crumbs of haute couture since that is as close as they will ever get, I suppose.

So, maybe because I work with MAC, and we have a new Barbie loves MAC collection www.barbielovesmac.com, all I see is Barbie in this season’s looks. I learned she was a muse for many designers like Armani, Dooney and Bourke, Anna Sui, Versace and even Tarina Tarantino! In fact, Anna Sui was actually president of the Barbie Fan Club where she grew up in Michigan – kinda cool that she got to design for Barbie now.
