MBFW: Day 6

We're almost done and I'm getting sad. Looking at all the runway shows is one of my favorite things to do!! Ready for round 6 of #fashionweekfromthecouch?

  • Vera Wang: The famous celebrity wedding dress designer took a completely new route with the collection and went grunge. Now I know that grunge has been everywhere and anywhere lately but this collection was tomboy mixed with romance which is totally up my alley. The air of romance was kept alive in details an overcoat off the shoulder, lots of satin, and fine gauge tank tops. Vera knows how to make a women looked dressed up when she isn't.
  • Disel Black Gold: It seemed like we had landed on the moon when this collection started walking down the runway. Silvery leather jackets and shiny leather parkas set the scene for a line that is out of this world. Hard edges in the form of studded discs and embellishments added just the perfect hint of detail to this other worldly gathering.
  • Badgley Mischka: This collection was washed in gold for fall and it was all about the details. From hand beaded bodices, floral overlays, and metallic glazes, they were nothing less of stunning. The silhouettes of all the designs were very reminiscent of the 50s and gave the drab looks of workdays a little pit of spunk.
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs: The tone of this collection was probably one of my favorites of the week. It was entirely focused on girl power and military pop. Even though the looks were very hard and edgy, there was a defiant romance that was hinted at through the collection. It was almost a slight undertone to the girly side in all of us.
  • Oscar de la Renta: The Man. His collections never seem to disappoint and this lived up to that precedent. Crisp flannel pinstripes were a new way for this pattern to be seen on the runways gave a very polished and masculine air. Leather has also been a favorite on the runways this week, but he put the fabric to new use in wide leg trousers that inspire all kinds of pant envy. And of course his gowns are always to die for.
