Vena Cava's Fall 2011 collection was a delicious ode to '90s fashion, chock-full of cutout dresses and floor-length silhouettes. We love the moody-hued palette and gold tribal chokers that topped off the clean, stream-lined looks. Check out the full runway coverage for more.
Day one of New York Fashion Week has come and gone so fast. But fret not, there's way more to come. While we await more fabulous Fall '11 collections, let's look back on the day's best looks. In this first bunch, you'll find little bit of bright pink from Jenni Kayne, a glam dress from St. John, a new take on evening wear via BCBGMaxazria, sheer at Luca Luca, and more. Click through to see Fab's top 10 looks from NYFW day one.
Ever dream of being a mystical witch princess? If so, Mara Hoffman's Fall collection is for you. That said, it's one beautiful mystical witch princess. Floor-length dresses had hoods, but lest you think that's a warmth factor, they were done in silk chiffon or jersey, and one was backless. Models' fingers were painted black and were bedecked in All For the Mountain jewelry. Knits were a standout: thick, printed, and either oversize or super cropped. Overall, it was a romantic vision, one that invited this comment from an observer: "far out, dude." Check out our exclusive interview with the designer here on FabSugarTV.
- Trends: Thick knits, long lengths, hooded dresses, backless dresses.
- Colors: Red, black, graphic prints.
- Key Look: A red knit maxidress with striped cardigan.
- Accessories: All For the Mountain jewelry added a mystical vibe.
- Who Would Wear It: The woman who craves romance and sexiness but indulges her dark side.
Backstage at Vena Cava, we chatted with designers Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai about their '90s-inspired collection for Fall 2011. This season is a cutting-edge ode to their high school obsessions Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan, and Azzedine Alaïa and includes full-length silk and jersey skirts all in moody rust, navy, and gray hues. The clean, pared-down silhouettes were finalized with bold collar necklaces from their Dannijo collaboration and platform Mary-Janes from their partnership with TenOverSix. Watch our video to get the full inside scoop, and find out about the world tour these ladies are about to embark on!
Kim Kardashian was out and about in New York City looking uber fashionable in a one-shoulder Alexander Wang dress, stud-sleeve Burberry trench, coveted Christian Louboutin maggie pumps, and a hot Hermès tote. Unfortunately Ms. Kardashian's coat, pumps, and purse aren't available online, but shop now for like items to copy her edgy-meets-girlie look.
Denise Richards was seen around Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week looking swanky in black and gold. We're especially craving her Alice + Olivia jumpsuit and Christian Louboutin peep toes, but her lariat necklace and open coat were oh-so-cool too. Shop her exact romper and shoes, with other similar items, to achieve Denise's effortlessly fashionable look.
We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!
My fashion week started off with a (freezing) bang with the Organic by John Patrick presentation. I walked in and immediately noticed the models rocking what seemed to be an homage to Laura Ingalls' character on Little House on the Prairie in their long, floral-printed chiffon dresses — so Kristen McMenamy early '90s grunge. The rest of the looks had a very laid-back vibe with a hint of prep school — seriously similar to the staffer style here at Lucky.
There were crisp oxfords, buttoned "librarian style" (i.e., all the way up), under heavy, cropped sweaters, high-waisted shorts and textured knit thigh-high tights. The footwear was all provided by Hunter, and what a departure from the rubber boots that I have seen all too much of this wet winter. There were cropped ankle booties with a modest heel and tall lace-up boots that were very wellie-meets-Victoriana and, dare I say, sexy enough to be worn even on a sunny day. Overall, the collection was wearable, stylish and eco-friendly. What's not to love?
