New York Fashion Week is always a whirlwind, and it's important to stop and smell the fashion roses. In my final roundup, soak up sleek styles from Tommy Hilfiger, edgy chic by Kimberly Ovitz, and pretty musings by Erin Fetherston. Phi (pictured) was my final show — front row Traina spotting! — and it was every bit irreverent as expected. And the shoes, lace up booties fit for Burning Man, had editors whispering in the exiting elevator.
Here's another healthy serving of what I've seen the past couple days at NYFW. From saucy swimsuits at Gottex (there's a new head designer there) to moody glam at Vera Wang and fembot beauty at Michael Kors, you don't want to miss this. Be sure to peruse my first roundups to get caught up. While I have your attention, isn't Tory Burch's gray-and-white tie-dye clutch and horn necklace ultra Fab? With the knit sweater and striped metallic tee, it's wildly sophisticated.
I wasn't going to leave you hanging after my first New York Fashion Week roundup. A lot happens in two days here. Adam Lippes, Thakoon, Zac Posen, Tracy Reese, Rebecca Taylor, DKNY, Christian Siriano, Carlos Miele — a lot. Trends are starting to surface: neutrals are ruling the runways, but luckily orange and blues are brightening things up; cutouts and draping are fabric treatments of choice; and sunglasses are soon to be the next hot accessory. Take a gander, start your wish list . . .
We're nowhere close to the thick of New York Fashion Week, but there is already plenty of eye candy to go around. Be sure to read my reviews of my favorite collections thus far, but I want to make sure you're not missing anything. Here are some hot looks from Cynthia Steffe, Rag & Bone, Rosa Cha, Yigal Azrouel, Mara Hoffman, Nicole Miller, and more. Erin Wasson's collection for RVCA was more than just denim cutoffs, while Monique Lhuillier stunned with this liquid metal gown. Check it.
