NYFW Photo Diary #2
I apologize for this wonky posting schedule, but I checked out for two days after Fashion Week. This brain needed rest.
But now I’m back. Brain turned on. Fingers ready for keyboard tickling. So without further ado, here’s a recap of NYFW round two (love when I accidentally rhyme).
Three of my favorite designers found themselves in my schedule for the last few days of Fashion Week. Olivier Theyskens of Theyskens’ Theory (doy), Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa, Francisco Costa of Calvin Klein, and of course, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler. I’m convinced they save the best collections for last because let me tell ya, the pieces and trends I saw earlier this week — oversized jackets, dropped hemlines, fur and gold embellishments, Asian-inspired silhouettes — all came together and became official in the following collections. Proenza Schouler really nailed the whole oversize, kimono-esque pieces, while Theyskens’ Theory made gold work in a non cheesy, blinged out way. And as for Marchesa, those two ladies may as well be the fairy godmothers of ballgowns, creating things only maids-turned-princesses-by-way-of-magic could wear.
My fashion week ended with a Guns N Roses concert, which was a simultaneously awesome and weird way to end such a high-heeled, pencil skirt week. But I was perfectly happy to trade in my stilettos for a comfy t-shirt and jeans.
Here are some photos from the last few days (I cut it down to just my favorites otherwise you’d be scrolling for two hours of photos…):
Hooray for gold(en heels) and furry arm(pit)s!
Alice & Olivia
Stacey Bendet of Alice & Olivia sure knows how to throw a
party presentation. I only wish I could have attended in that green Beetlejuice suit
Once again Marchesa kills me with beauty. That red dress is what my dreams are made of…that and puppies
One of my favorite bloggers, Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules workin’ it on the runway
That’s a skirt people. A SKIRT!
Structured jackets. Powerful silhouettes. Fur bags. Woven leather heels. Proenza Schouler, you make my life complete.
The only somewhat focused photo I could capture. But just know this collection had Rooney Mara all over it (she was also in the front row. sha-wing!)
Nothing says the end of Fashion Week like a Guns n Roses concert…or does it?
Spring 2010: PROENZA SCHOULER
I am absolutely in love with every look in Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez’s spring 2010 collection. Like many other collections, the inspiration for Proenza Schouler was taken from sports like track and field. Skirts and dresses were designed in a way that looked like a track jacket had been tied around the models’ waits, and angular prints were reminiscent of racing stripes. The colors were big and bold, with cobalt blues, seafoam green, dark greens and neon yellows, the list goes on. The entire collection was incredibly chic and sexy. Well done boys.
