NYFW | Day Two

Weekends here at school mean football games and that means I don't do any work here until Sunday. Not to worry, I was keeping a close eye on the runways for you guys and my recap of the best of day two is here. Keep reading for more.

Rebecca Minkoff

Neutral, muted palettes with a romantic boho feel floated down this 70s inspired runway. Day dresses and lace jumpsuits were topped off with tasseled  leather clutches and the floppy wide brimmed hats we have all come to love over this past season played into the laid-back vibe. Minkoff also sent out a pair of denim overalls and lots button ups tucked into equally as crisp (I use this word a lot) skirts.


Delicate shapes and fabrics commanded the runway at Zimmermann’s show. The brand played masculine against feminine pairing flowing gowns with utilitarian vests, and a stand out suiting featuring stand out salmon and icy blue shades. There was a lot of punch in the collection with some pieces shouting louder than others.

Peter Som

The looks sent down this runway played on the energetic, upbeat American lifestyle. The looks were very simple but strong with strapless tunics worn over trousers, stripe detailing, and a classic, crisp, white button down with ruffle detailing. I love that we have been seeing a lot of blouses like this on the runways. The use of color and how well they mixed throughout the collection is what made it so striking, causing a lot of excitement (who doesn’t love lots of color in spring?) for spring season.

Monique Lhuillier

One of my favorite evening gown designers, Monique Lhuillier has once again showed she is one of the masters of the art. The collection experimented and played with colors pulled form the sunrise and ranged from straightforward designs like a dress with those iconic shimmering colors to a more avant-garde iridescent silk voile skirt. There were a lot of separates in this collection as well so you can just buy a few to update your wardrobe. The gowns that closed the show were very Monique with lots of intricate details. This collection did not disappoint in anyway, it just made me want to wear the dresses everyday.

Sally LaPointe

LaPointe said backstage before her show that she took a “less is more” approach to her spring line. She moved away from the narrow silhouettes and focused more on wide sleeves and flowing skirts promised ease and simplicity. A matte white gown adorned with a beaded details at the hip had an unfussy silhouettes that was so eye catching.

Agree with my thoughts? Have any other favorite looks? Let me hear it in the comments.
