New York fashion week : Day 3

[couture2.jpg]
I totally loving this collection, Flora Gill gleefully pronounced Ohne Titel's Fall collection its most wearable ever. With equal enthusiasm, she discussed her attempts, with co-designer Alexa Adams, to keep prices down and clientele growing. From leather jackets inset with ribbed-knit panels, cropped shearlings, soldier coats to the knitted mesh leggings the whole vibe of the collection is young and refreshing. Its is definitely one of my favourite collections shown in New York so far this season.

Although Im not keen on the shapes and fabrics of Vivienne Tam's latest collection , I feel it works great as a whole and the graphic tights are stunning.

It is Prabal Gurungs first collection to be put on the runway and after his incredible work shown for his spring 2010 collection I was very much looking forward to seeing what he would come up with for this fall, and Im certainly not disappointed. The Color-blocking at the start of his collection work really well with the cuts of his garments, giving then great proportions. The Jackets were inventive without being tricky, and the black-in-back trousers, were cut with leg-elongating convex seams.

There were Stunning Textures and colours brought together with the draping at the Peter Som show. "There's almost not a single solid fabric," Som said. "It's all printed or textured."

Karen Walker introduces an idea, evolves it in a few directions, and then loops it back around to a fully formed composition. She called the Fall collection Salzburg, USA an imaginary place where an American take on old-world European wardrobe traditions resides.

I love the concept of modern structure buildings on top of historic ones, Nicole and Michael Colovos took as their starting point for Fall. Its was clear to see the architectural structure of each garment, giving a strong and empowering silhouette which I really love. Its modern with interesting patterns and beautiful draping.

"I love things that look like they were once something else," Gary Graham said a few days before his show. This statment really tranlates in his collection, each piece looks old and rusted but in a really beautiful way.

Joseph Altuzarra sent out a fierce and fearless collection of structured tailoring, commanding outerwear, and seriously sexy dresses.

"My woman is stronger this season," the young designer said backstage. "The collection is more sophisticated; the emphasis is on fashion this time."

Young, quirky and pretty is the words I would use to describe this collection by Stacey Bendet for the brand Alice and Olivia. "These clothes are fun," Bendet said. "They're like candy."
