Here’s a peek at some of my favorite designers at Day 3 of Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week.
DESIGNER: Alexander Wang
INSPIRATION: “It’s about poking fun at luxury and decadence and this idea of stereotypical wealth,” Wang explained.
TOP LOOKS: super satiny pajama pants, fur trim, over-sized leather coats, multisplit skirts and tunics, leather panels
TOP COLORS: black, champagne, neutrals, grays
ACCESSORIES: open toe boots, sandals, tassels on metallic loafers, metallic clutches, fur trim
MY THOUGHTS: He delivered as usual. Love the downtown cool girl vibe!
DESIGNER: Prabal Gurung
INSPIRATION: John Singer Sargent’s A Parisian Beggar Girl and Miss Havisham from Great Expectations for Fall 2011 and the challenge of doing an “undone” look.
TOP LOOKS: lace print, flaring trousers with unflattering fit, Bandage details, ’80s, Victorian, Karlie Kloss off the shoulder red dress, textures glore, sheer, backless coats
TOP COLORS: black, red, pink, ombre
ACCESSORIES: cutout leggings, black leather moto gloves, black high-waisted belts
MY THOUGHTS: Undone glam at its finest! I love that he stepped away from his usual tight, short dresses style and was ambitious enough to challenge the “undone” look. That red number Karlie Kloss wore at the start of the show is embedded in my head. Simply marvelous!
DESIGNER: Charlotte Ronson
INSPIRATION: Keeping things “feminine, but not too feminine.”
TOP LOOKS: military style, pants with bell bottom flare, mustard and olive green cardigans, silk dresses and skirts, flirty floral pieces, 90′s vibe ensembles
TOP COLORS: mustard, olive green, grays, black, navy
ACCESSORIES: round sunglasses, beanies, shredded tights
MY THOUGHTS: As an LA native, I can’t help but embrace her laid back, west coast style. So far, this is the first collection featuring military-inspired pieces but still feminine. I yearn for her cozy yet casual collection.
