MBFW: Day 5

I can't believe that #fashionweekfromthecouch is almost over! It seems like it just started. By this time you know the drill, recaps from the chicest week of the year.

  • 3.1 Phillip Lim: Taking a different route with fall, this collection gave this time of year a little personality with bright colors. The colors are brought out through beautiful collage dresses and button down blouses which really caught my eye because not too many designers so far had been using such colors.
  • Theory: This entire line is going to have women running to the stores to buy these looks, or at least something similar. This collection was very tailored with defined silhouettes in the blazers, pants, and moto jackets. I don't think you will be able to find a better looking array of suits anywhere.
  • Kenneth Cole Collection: Among the black, grey, white, and burgundy tones of this collection, pinstripes were the name of the game here today. The print was seen on pants, blouses, and shirts and was off set by striking yet simple accessories. The resemblance to gangster era menswear was translated flawlessly throughout the whole collection, even for the women.
  • Zac Posen: This was the show I have been most excited for all week. Zac Posen is one of the most talented designers out there and I absolutely adore his work. His collection started out with very precise tweed suit sets and dresses and then the real fun began. What I love about Zac Posen is that his designs are always so unique and push boundaries in the right ways. The gowns were full of youthful looking satins and with a lovely green number showed that volume in the skirts can be done without looking completely tacky. This collection took me back to the golden days of Hollywood.
  • Alice + Olivia: The most creative presentation award of the week in my opinion goes to this lovely brand right here. The entire collection was fairytale inspired and with that, the beginning of the collection told a story with each look. Although the entire collection didn't tell a story, the remainder still had a victorian feel with the high collars and a breath taking red velvet baroque pattern.
