Zac Posen SS2013. Leave it To Zac to open a show with Naomi and close the show with her model protege Coco. Overall the collection looked like an ode to 50's structures and contours with a new-age twist of tailoring. The pieces had classic shapes but with milky navy's, porcelain whites and venetian hues. Grace Kelly could have worn the entirety of the collection, Cinderella as well. It was the best of both worlds, reality with fantasy. A fairytale of sorts.
Custo Barcelona SS2013. The "Rainforests Futuristic Woodstock" collection of NYFW. Every outfit that was showcased at this collection told a beautiful story and it expressed the playful and diverse side of fashion that so many designers dismiss. With the contrasting patterns, kaleidoscope colors, and fur on fringe, the pieces are artistry. Crochet and fur never looked so pleasing together. The designers choice of offbeat psychedelic prints suited the of 70's silhouettes of over-sized vests, tinted shades and contrasting fabrics.
Alexander Wang SS2013. It was all about right angles and acute isosceles triangles for team Wang SS2013. Black and white attire was a must, and black lights were also in attendance. The what-seemed-to-be effortless tailoring of the structure clay jackets and symmetrical shirtdresses this young designer had the collection being buzzed about before the show even commenced. Not to mention the innovative presentation of glow-in-the-Wang, with models glowing a neon yellow, the dresses were showcased with a well-crafted eye. Media, buyers and bloggers were all able to perceive Alexanders pieces and just how intricate the tailoring and designs are.
