  • Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2012 Runway Review


    Runway Review: Body conscious, well-tailored and asymmetric dresses with expert seaming and unusual folding and pleating are what really draw my attention to this collection… The fall 2012 Narciso Rodriguez collection was a seamless continuation of what we saw in pre-fall with structured outerwear, oversized and voluminous silhouettes, asymmetrical draping and folding, seaming, and color blocking. Very true to it’s identity, the perfectly tailored, clean line is a home run.  The warm chestnut browns and smoky greys were kicked up with saturated…

  • Custo Barcelona Fall 2012 Runway Review


    Runway Review: Wild yet wearable, Custo sticks to its style roots and remains the collection to push your fashion boundaries The fall 2012 Custo Barcelona collection takes the brand’s iconic textures, psychedelic colors and prints, and one of a kind designs to a new roughed up and tough level. At the same time it comes off as one of the most wearable, wild collections that I can recall. Lots of raw edges, pieced mixed fabrications that appear torn, zippers and…

    Marc by Marc Jacobs F/W 2012

    Marc by Marc’s latest offering had a clean sensibility about it mixed with the hit master’s signature plays on vintage standbys and references galore that made for a winning outing. Working as a clean slate of propositions that have a universal, foundational appeal that thankfully this time around didn’t veer on the too young or trying too hard to be cool appeal, the collection’s major statement could be considered to be that fuss-free, everyday fashion needn’t be riddled with over…

    Rachel Roy fw12

    Runway Review: Architecturally balanced pieces in grown-up and sophisticated colors worthy of a woman who achieved a certain sense of acclaim in her life, or just wants to look that way. When it comes to day wear, a presentation, rather than runway show, is best if the clothes are design worthy.

    Chris Benz F/W 2012

    Runway Review: From New York’s unparalleled color fanatic Chris Benz comes a collection fit for a dolly girl with a little Eliza Doolittle thrown in for extra character. Chris Benz’ latest outing sees the designer forgoing his dialogue with 70’s Americana done up in a myriad of bold hues and vivid prints for something a little more retro, slightly disheveled and wickedly off-kilter for a collection that’s certainly not to be confused with any other American designer. Sure, there were…

    Yigal Azrouel F/W 2012

    Runway Review: From a man who rose to fame designing body-con dresses for the party girl set comes an outing full of right-on, more subtle fashion perfect for the times. Over the past few season’s Yigal Azrouel has made a name for himself by loosely interpreting Europe’s top trends in a way that speaks to New York Fashion Week’s more reality-minded, sportswear oriented DNA and has continued to make them his own by steering clear of being too trend driven….
