    Runway Review: The urban girl with a rocker sensibility will feel right at home with this collection that emphasizes rich tactile fabrications that play off more than black. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS Classic silhouettes such as bomber jackets, shirt dresses, moto jackets and even what could be a Saville Road herringbone get a cool and downtown vibe at the hands of Rebecca Taylor.

  • Herve Leger Fall 2012 Runway Review and Photos


    Runway Review: If you want a truly sexy LBD, you have come to the right designer. Sexy. Bondage. Need I say more about the Fall 2012 collection from Herve Leger?! There is not a chance, with all the leather straps, anatomical seaming, and skin-tight dense knits, that a woman can wear one of these slammin’ dresses and NOT exude supreme sexiness. No way. This is the most bodycon one can get; besides the perfect fit there are cut-outs, cinched waists,…

  • Charlotte Ronson Fall 2012 Runway Review and Photos


    Runway Review: Asymmetrical hems, oversize honeycomb stitches and graphic fair isles are must-haves, along with gotta-get sweaters. The Charlotte Ronson Fall 2012 show had me already yearning for chilly autumn’s return when it’s yet to be spring! A soft, warm palette painted itself on cozy intarsia and cable sweaters, tightly fit leather, light weight georgette, and thick jacquards. The looks were completed and well-balanced with soft purple eye shadow and pouty geranium lips. Every sweater in this collection is going to…

  • Nicholas K Fall 2012 Runway Review & Photos


    Runway Review: Heritage prairie inspiration with a dose of edge– and some of the best outerwear around. Fall 2013 from Nicholas K. takes you to the wild west prairie days, roughed up with an ample amount of dark edginess to boot, and a dose of old-school 90’s heroin chic played up with goth-ish hair dye. Sometimes a bit frightening! But not too terrifying, because the fabrications were flowy, easily draped on the body, and layered under soft furs and supple leathers…

  • Age Appropriate Fashion- Over 40, It’s Back to classics and how to navigate trends for Spring 2012

    The Urban Jungles of this world inevitably produce trends in fashion that make their way into closets across America. With fashion week upon us, I’m looking forward to the fashion parade outside of Lincoln Center. The young and restless work the stairs and promenade leading up to the tents ala Lady Gaga!  Yet, there are elements that can be lifted from the wreckage such as the vintage print scarfs that reemerged during the fall 2011 fashion week in February. Tied…

    Chris Benz Spring 2012

    Jil Sander Navy Spring 2012

    Runway Review Snippet… Platform brogues punctuated a youthful, tomboyish and relaxed spirit from an otherwise characteristically utilitarian outing from Jil Sander's secondary line, Jil Sander Navy. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS While knife-pleated skirts and prim blouses made for a bulk of the collection, the real draw to the range came via a subversive and vaguely military ode to Girl Scouts and to uniform dressing as a whole.

  • Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel Spring 2012 Fashion Presentation

    Cut 25 by Yigal Azrouel - Spring 2012

    Consisting of mostly body-conscious mini dresses with graphic cut-outs in an array of electrifying neons, Yigal Azrouel's Cut 25 presentation was somehow able to reach a more relaxed momentum than the kind of party-girl sexy his chosen range of silhouettes might suggest. And that's a good thing as we at FocusOnStyle have seen enough skin-tight body-con dressed open-toe bootied girls than we can bear. And thankfully by the looks of it, Azrouel has had enough too. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS…
