NYFW | Day Five

We are almost at the end of one of the best weeks of the year. I get so much inspiration from these runways that I want to wear all my clothes at the same time and I know you all know what I mean. Keep reading below for my favorites of the day and read about the other days HERE

Rag and Bone

Keeping with the minimalistic themes we've seen on many runways, Rag and Bone added their twist on the trend. Military inspired outwear was my favorite part of the collection because I love love love jackets and blazers. This toned down styling gave the accessories the front row in this collection. Bags, sandals, and chunky mules added dimension to their looks and I think they will be a big seller for the brand in spring. The collection wasn't too flashy but it was very powerful.

Zac Posen

Another one of my favorite evening wear designers balanced classic with sexy in his latest collection. Only using black, white, and red, there was more attention to the cut of the looks. Dramatic details like a high neck on a gown or, my favorite, the black structured jumpsuit dress gave the collection a subtle sexy that Posen is known for.

Donna Karen

The silhouettes that came down this runway were fresh and clean, which is something that I always associate with Donna Karen. The belted dresses, pants, and skirts paired with collared shirts and crops had a low key, easy vibe and we saw even more of the gorgeous deep v dresses that so many designers have been playing with in their collections. Prints and embroidery were the most striking part of this collection, especially the graffiti jacket that is a must have for spring. 

Carolina Herrera

In the words of The Devil Wears Prada's Miranda Priestly, "florals for spring, groundbreaking". No stranger to the floral theme, Herrera took this popular pattern for a spin. The painted details of the rose were put together like a puzzle to create a stunning 3D effect. Herrera pushed the boundaries by playing around with new fabrics and embellishments and for those who like to play it safe, there were plain and colorful dresses to match your taste.

Tommy Hilfiger 

With a runway to rival the iconic Beatles Lonely Hearts Club cover, Hilfiger dug into his love of rock and roll for his most recent collection. Georgia May Jagger appropriately opened the show in a striped cape and matching short set. Sequined tees, metallic booties, and suiting as far as the eye can see rocked (pun intended) and brought the glamour to this collection. Besides the sequins all over the suits, my favorite pieces were the leather styles. Because, what is rock and roll without leather?
