Style.com has posted more collections shown yesterday at NYC Fashion Week, September 5. Today I will be profiling Rag & Bone, Erin Fetherston, Yigal Azrouël, TSE, and Jason Wu.
All of these are marvelous, I want every piece.
Rag & Bone was lovely. It was a mix of hard rock (silver blazer, leather vest, skinny ties) paired with more girly things (tiny florals, nautical stripes, pink ties) These elements are more subtle, at first look its all rock and roll. I want everything in this collection. I loved how they didn't try to make the suit any more feminine, just fitted a men's style suit and made it look perfect.
Erin stuck to her signature of ethereal, angelic looking clothes, only this time she used a bit more color, as opposed to her usual white and silver. These colors were saturated pinks and blues, with iridescent sequined pieces that I adored. The first look I love- a brocade trench coat that perfectly embodies glamour and femininity. She reprises the trench coat in pink on Chanel Iman later in the show. The sequined pieces were fabulous, the color was what made it. The last white dress was beautiful, but I'm sure everyone thought it looked much too Marchesa.
LOVE. Yigal Azrouël's show was as if the models had lived in the clothes for a long time. They looked perfectly worn in and weathered. It was incredibly low-key with fashion-y elements. He paired anoraks with capri pants that didn't look like they belonged on a 7 year old. I loved his mint green 3/4 sleeved dress on the 4th model. It's casual but you could wear it out too. Azrouël didn't just focus on the masculine-style clothes. Structured ruffles and more feminine pieces came at the end of the show (last look).
Known for their fantastic cashmere, TSE did not disappoint this season. I loved the fresh, bright color palette and relaxed silhouettes. They are all versatile pieces that you could wear apart or together. I loved the mix of the same pattern in different colors on the second look, and the color blocked dress on the fourth. I saw even more pants, which I am already seeing as a big trend for spring. This show was mainly feminine, but with some utilitarian details, such as the first jacket and the last shorts.
Jason Wu perfectly captured a confident, stylish Park Avenue woman. It was elegant and powerful with a bit of whimsy. I loved all of the bright pinks and purples he used, as well as the ruffles, pleats, and shimmer. His collection could be seen on a woman of any age, from 25 to 50.
