Day 2 and a little bit more color mixed in with those now ubiquitous neutrals. The LWD is proving to be the reigning force of the season and here's hoping things stay that way. Also nice to see a little bit of that oh so talked about regatta blue, and let's just discuss that everything at Vena Cava is to die for. The most perfect slinky silky thin 70s dressing. Turbans and all. Memphis movement color blocking, some lovely rust colors, silk shorts and wait for it... wait for it... a baja. Ok, maybe they didn't mean for it to be a baja, or maybe they are just that genius - but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Enjoy my favorite things from Day 2 of NYFW. What trends are you seeing so far? Summer leather? Shorts suits?
We couldn't agree more with Fabsugar's trend predictions for FW 2010. While we saw orange, neutrals, shearling coats and leather pants - Fab noticed another one of our favorites (only because it makes our early 90s grunge so easy to attain) maxi dressing. Long skirts and dresses were all over the runways. Take a look at Fab TV to find out more.
If orange was the color most present on the runway, it was only outdone by the overwhelming lack of color on the runways. Fall/Winter is typically the season for a whole slew of basic black, shades of grey, burgundy, browns and navy, but those colors were all replaced, or should I say taken away, by shades of beige, tan and white. Who says you can't wear white after labor day? Certainly not Phillip Lim, Michael Kors, Max Azria, Cushnie et Ochs, the Mulleavy sisters, Derek Lam, Adam Lippes, Erin Fetherston, Erin Wasson, Justin and Thea of Preen and Diane von Furstenberg who were all among the many designers feeling light for FW 2010.
The trend was punctuated by Marc Jacobs' awe inspiring collection, that brought a new feeling of simplicity (and a near tear to this minimalist's eye) to the runways that we certainly hope will stick. Marc's runway was a mix of beige neutrals and some usual fall staples (like fur collars and the afore mentioned velvet pants) and gave the stamp of approval to the season's new colorless minimalism.
We caught up with adorable new designer Kaelen Farncombe this weekend at the debut presentation of her namesake line, Kaelen. The Toronto native, a former Jenni Kayne and Stella McCartney employee, wowed with a cohesive collection that's normally reserved for the likes of seasoned fashion vets. The mix of soft colors, neutrals and a wowing turquoise were the perfect way to spend our Saturday morning and go with the layering addiction we have going on right now.
For a first timer Kaelen has an incredible eye for the minimalism that's sweeping the fashion nation, and a lovely mix of tailored and draping that was inspired by 1940s dressing. My favorite piece: a cropped black jacket with a shearling collar over a streamlined skirt and metallic-ish top. All this on her first time out! Can't wait to see what she has in store for next season. No pressure!
And did we forget to mention that she's just darling? Take a look for yourself...
