It was with a large cheer that we noticed a slew of stylish women wearing their (comfortable) sneakers out and about in place of ankle booties and pumps. Fashion editor Laurel Pantin used a bright red pair of Nikes to finish off an outfit that would work just as well with a more formal shoe. A chunky turtleneck worn under a double-breasted navy coat felt East Coast collegiate, while cropped leather trousers were a surefire editor staple. Her bold accessory choices didn't stop at the cherry kicks, either. She finished things off with a yellow Reece Hudson clutch and smoky lilac shades. Shop the outfit we put together here.

The word of the day at the Helmut Lang Spring 2014 show was "slouchy." Think of it more as an attitude than just a description of how the low-slung pants fell just so from the hipbone or a boxy leather shell gently fell at the waistband. In a world where tomboy toughness meets architectural precision, Nicole and Michael Colovos found new ground to conquer in a mix of sharply tailored jackets, sheer dresses with geometric seaming and yes, slouchy pants.
One new thing that hit the runway is the debut of a new line of handbags from the brand, with sleek clutches in black and white stingray standing out. They acted as a perfect counterpoint to the long series of graphic black and white pieces, punctuated by a bright pink that seems to be the season's early frontrunner color story.
