It’s Fashion Week amazingness! This weekend consisted of 13 designers showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Sorry I couldn’t cover it live, I was parading as it is once again Carnival time in New Orleans.
Friday we had Rebecca Taylor, Rebecca Minkoff, Nicole Miller, and Charlotte Ronson. YouTube/LiveRunway didn’t show Tommy Hilfiger Men.
Rebecca Taylor: Peter Pan collars, sheer sleeves and sequins as well as tweed, blouse-y tops and pants ruled. Fur and sparkles are obviously a must for fall. On the beauty side, low messy ponies were key. Knit is always a big one too. Cobalt (always a favorite color) was shown a lot. Lace is back and so is fair isle. Possibly my favorite look from the collection would be printed dresses and skirts with tweed jackets or textured sweaters over them.
Rebecca Minkoff: Multi-colored sequins, teal (jackets and pants both in sparkly tweed), leather minis and colorful cut out shift walked down the runway. Exposed zippers on dresses as well as clutch bags (textured, leather, animal) were rocked by gorgeous girls with wide-eyed makeup. To get their look put black mascara on top and brown on the bottom.
Nicole Miller: There was a very 70s vibe at Nicole Miller. Think big floppy hats, fun prints in flowing dresses and straight sleek hair. Huge fabulously ornate clutches as well as small leather backpacks were carried by the rouge-heavy models. As in, you could easily fit an iPad is these bags, great for work. Wide belts also seem to be on accessory watch for fall as do aviators.
Charlotte Ronson: Ronson opened with a bright white runway with the signature CR in the shape of a heart in the background. The models walked out in tribal prints and mixed patterns with colored tights (magenta, purple and white) as well as knit tops and elbow-length gloves. High heeled riding boots and oxford style booties were the shoes of choice.
