New York Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear Fall 2010: Review Part 1

New York Fashion Week finally started this past Thursday at Bryant Park. It seems as if it were just yesterday when the big apple welcomed  Designers to show their spring summer 2010 collections. And here we are again, anticipating what fashion will be in Fall 2010.

Bryant Park  lit everyone's spirits up when they saw their favorite designer's oeuvre d'art walk down the runway. 
Jason Wu's inspiration of his short-sleeve jackets, oversized cashmere coats, and fold-over trouvers was the photographer Irving Penn's personal style. Plaid jackets and crisp white shirts were the photographers daily uniforms which gave a big meanswear message to the collection. A couple of times after his show, Jason said that "There's a big meanswear message and a big outwear message." The collection's golden leaves and black smoky prints were also inspired by Penn's photographs

 The pleated mini skirts, side-ponytails, long scarves, and oversized wool coats gave the feeling of a schoolgirl in the 60s but with touch of  modernity. The different geometric shapes were the key to DKNY'S collection, which as always had a New York spirit.

This collection from Carolina Herrera felt more familiar than her recent ones. It was ultra-luxurious and 
elegant. The day and evening dresses had brush stroke prints and floral embroiders in a color pallet of Prussian blue, deep red. Fur, high waisted pants, and blouses played also a major role.

Diane von Furstenberg played with hard and soft using chiffon rosettes over grey wool. The collection also had some men's suits. "I always wanted to live a man's life in a women's body" states Diane von Furstenberg.

Marc Jacobs' show was one of the most anticipated at Bryant Park. Although the color palett was very soft and neutral Marc Jacobs still managed to make an interesting show.After the show, Marc Jacobs declared that "It's refreshing to see something that isn't trying so hard to be new. There's so much striving for newness now that newness fells less new." Do you agree?

The inspiration of Lacoste's creative designer, Cristophe Lemaire, were photos of the 30s of René Lacoste and his friends playing. Alpaca oversized hand-knit outwear wrapping were worn over shorts. The colorful belts with pompoms and the high ponytails pulled to the side with berets made the collection very unique.

The colorful party dresses are adorable and they show Zac Posen's showmanship . The blazers and fur added a touch of sportswear to this glamourus collection. Overall, I think this was one of Zac Posen's most interesting shows.

  6. I haven't really been keeping an eye on NYFW (I tend to pay more attention to London and Paris), but I don't think I've ever disliked anything Carolina Herrera did. I did love the Preen collection as well, which I've seen on a couple of other blogs.

    P.S. Aren't those pics from Marc Jacob's main line and not his MBMJ line?
