Fringe Benefit

In case you missed fashion week, or haven’t had time to drool over all of the upcoming trends for fall, I’ve got you covered.  One of my favorite trends I saw on the runway was fringe! It’s so fun and flirty, and gives off a romantic feel if paired with the right accessories.  Michael Kors debuted the trend in overcoats, handbags and dresses (below).  Other designers like Phillip Lim, Herve Leger, and Derek Lam also showcased the trend on their runways.  We’ve seen fringe before on the runways but what’s different about it now, is that the fringes are softer and ornamented in a delicate manner.  Be on the look out for fringe everything come this fall, whether it be accessories, garments, outerwear or detailing!

DKNY NYFW

I don’t know if you all were keeping up to speed with NYFW, but I seriously loved the DKNY show that happened last week. Check out some of my favorite looks!

The looks were laid back yet very chic. They had a city feel that I just loved. And the best part is that most of the models were people taken off the streets, musicians, and other non “model” folk. How cool is that?? What was your favorite show?

Check out the rest of the collection here!

Drama Over Fashion Show Schedule

Next year’s New York Fashion Week will begin September 13th due to the date of Labor Day. Italian design houses are worried that this will push back their dates and will not give the designers enough time to produce good shows. If the Italian designers change their dates, then their fashion week will begin during New York Fashion Week and last through London Fashion Week.

However, those over at Conde Nast are not very happy. Vogue editors promise to not show up to the Milan shows if the Italian designers decide to change their dates. The International Chairman of Conde Nast, Jonathan Newhouse, even wrote a letter to the Italian Chamber of Fashion expressing his feelings of the situation. In the letter he states that “They will not under any circumstances abandon the London or New York shows if the Milan shows are moved earlier…” (WWD.com). We’ll have to wait and see who will win this battle.

Hottest Trends for Fall 2011

A wide range of exciting styles for Fall 2011 dominated Fashion Week, almost making one wish for autumn to arrive early this year.

Tartan plaid showed up on purses, pants, coats, and skirts from Rag & Bone, Burberry Prorsum, and Sonia Rykiel. The mod style of the sixties was rocked down the runway, whether trimmed with fur à la Jean Paul Gaultier, or in bold orange and white like Bottega Veneta.

S&M inspired ensembles complete with bondage straps and tight leather corsets were present in the collections of Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen. Long, ground skimming coats completed looks from Christian Dior, Emporio Armani, and Missoni. Black and white polka dots dominated ensembles from Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg.

Jil Sander, Celine, and Max Mara all sent simple, chic sportswear down the runway, mostly in neutral colors with pops of color here and there. Models donning outfits with crisp lines and geometric prints glided down the catwalk for Balenciaga and Narciso Rodriguez.

With all the unique trends for Fall 2011 to choose from, there will certainly be something for every fashionista.

Weekly Obsession – February 24

Net-a-Porter

One of the most significant themes from New York and ParisFashion Weeks is the gorgeous paradox that comes from femenine silhouettes crossed with neutral palettes. The outcome is an elegant and timeless piece. Because the color helps blend into one’s skin tone, the shape of the figure is emphasized. Preen, $1,325.

Fashion Week Spring 2011 Coverage

Valentino, Style.com.Designers certainly did not disappoint last week. There was a little bit of retro, a splash of sequins, and an overdose of style. Even the non-fashion guru would port some the looks from multiple ready-to-wear collections. The most significant trend which one may discern from viewing the shows is emphasis on neutrals this spring. Designers stuck with the same palette- khaki, white, grey and black galore. Ranging from Alice & Olivia to Valentino, the neutral theme was global. What is quite remarkable is that even though there was little color, the mixing of neutrals still brought life and vibrance to the runways.

For these reasons, the spring collections shown last week in New York have the potential to speak to a much wider audience than usual. It will be interesting to see how Fashion Week in the fall compares with the spring.
