As Paris Fashion Week comes to an end, it is fare to take a look back at the most gorgeous, fashion-forward, and awe-inspiring looks from NYC.
See slide show with comments.
Stunning the crowd, Zac Posen finale look was…intricate in details, flawlessly-folded fabric, and on-point color choice. A true master a craft and draping he showed a collection that was breath taking.
While dreaming up her Spring prints and silhouettes, Herrera referenced kinetic art, specifically the work of Venezuelan artists Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto. She translated the movement’s graphic lines into geo-prints, which appeared in chocolate, citrus, and plum on skirts and gowns as well as on their organza overlays. As they swished down the catwalk, Herrera’s layered lines produced mesmerizing optical illusions while keeping her esthetic of a perfect fit and total feminism. Simply divine.
Khan found inspiration in all things Latin this season, a sweeping landscape that was home to Frida Kahlo, flamenco dancers, Mexican churches, and the Moors. The models were crowned in Kahlo’s signature headband braid (no unibrows), and the dresses dripped with vermilion roses. There were a few distinctly Spanish silhouettes and lace was used to beautiful effect here.
Oscar De La Renta
My focus was into evening, which ranged from a narrow column dress in tiers of aqua georgette trimmed in tiny pearls to a frothy confection in citrine silk faille and tulle with black filigree embroidery.
Oscar de la Renta entranced the crowd with bold finale look with a black veil shown on Joan Smalls.
Supermodel Karlie Kloss worked it at the Jason Wu show modeling a very sleek yet delicate sheet dress with ruffles. Just stunning. The designer can’t do no wrong.. ever. Simply adorable.
Known for red carpet ready gowns Marchesa didn’t disappointed. The look shown here was quickly placed on Kerry Washington’s Emmy look. A total winner. She is after all the best dressed celebrity alive..”according to?”
Naomi Campbell SHUT IT DOWN at the close of the Diane Von Furstenberg runway in a little black embellished dress… she can walk like no one else and she is a true living legend. The DVF show was the talk of the week.
This isn’t the first time DVF brings out the big guns. Previously she had Mr. De La Renta in attendance to her show. Quite an honor. I love DVF.
“This collection is about sophistication,” said the designer in the basement of his Soho boutique. But subdued and sophisticated mean something different for the always vibrant, entirely eclectic Barcelona-based label than they do for most.
I am always happy to attend his shows. They are full of so much good energy. Maybe is the Spaniar in me.
Jenny Packham’s dresses were as ethereal and gorgeous as ever. A favorite of Princess Kate and Julianne Hough. Her collection was dreamy and sensual.
“Punk” and “positivity” were the buzzwords behind Johnson Hartig’s Spring ’14 Libertine collection A few busily printed blazers and dresses devoured the intricate beading and appliqué offering the kind of over-the-top but wearable drama that the Libertine customer craves.
