It’s Time to Unveil Next Spring’s Fashions
It’s that time of year again … when you soon fall into autumn boots, but look forward to next year’s spring collections. Here are some of my favorites from the first collections to present at Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in New York City:
The crop tops from this past year continue to roll out with more cut-out action. You see a lot of playing around with shape. There are low-slung, wide-legged bottoms in basic neutrals and soft metallics plus cute shoes. (Side note: the remix of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky in the show is something amazing we’d want to have playing while we’re dressing up.)
Fashion is art, but the designer decided to show it AS art. The models didn’t walk; they stood there as living, breathing objects — with clothes. Love the concept. There was sportiness infused with lace and metallic accents. The collection had more of a resort-wear feel, for example, with rope as belt.
Noon by Noor
If I were a designer, I would have drawn up these designs for ready-to-wear, and if that were the challenge, I think it would win Project Runway. Unlike some of the other collections, the Bahrain-based duo put out bold prints and more fitted pairings.
Philip Lim for Target
And boom! Amid the first shows, Target held a launch event for its upcoming collaboration of high brow with the low. Jessica Alba wore the tuxedo pant in navy/black ($39.99) and Solange Knowles dons the jacket ($59.99) with nothing else underneath! I’m all about getting one of the new carry-all bags … the collection is available Sept. 15.
