The Alternative Presentation

For years, it felt like the buzz at Mercedes-Benz fashion week was all about location. Were you at the tents, first at Bryant Park and now at Lincoln Center, or were you in an alternative venue? But this past week, I felt like I experienced more discussion around the alternative...

My two passions in life happen to coincide for one week every year as the US Open plays out in Queens and the new spring season plays out in Lincoln Center. And this particular September, it practically felt indistinguishable. Not only have tennis pros Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova brought...

A Crispness in the Air

Is it a coincidence that the first cool day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week saw a crispness in the clothing as well as the air? From Alexander Wang's cyber chic collection to the parade of city cool separates in black and white at DKNY, there's a sharpness at hand for Spring....

Many years ago, one of my favorite editors bemoaned the loss of a loved shirt at the cleaners, explaining it threw off her whole Fashion Week wardrobe. As the shows were still a few weeks away, I puzzled through the idea. She had planned in advance what she was wearing...

A Fresh Eye on a Fresh Palette

There's always a moment on the first day of the shows where you feel like your eyeballs spin like a slot machine, and you find yourself looking at a whole new perspective. After a spring of aggressive neons and a barely-begun fall of saturated jewel tones, it may take more...

How to Wear Neon Without Neon Wearing You

(1) Comments | Posted June 21, 2012 | 7:52 PM

As a person whose closet tends to bear out the idea that fashion people and New Yorkers alike wear a tremendous amount of black, the love that I have for neon may come as a surprise. But I've started to think of it almost as a perverse neutral -- highlighter-bright...

It's warm! Break out the sandals. It's cold! Why didn't I wear my boots today? It's that moment of spring where every day holds a surprise and you pay more attention to the morning forecast than your horoscope. So what's a girl to do to stay climate controlled and in...

The Glamorous Life

Great fashion takes us on a trip out of the ordinary, dreaming of the life that we could lead if only we had that wardrobe. Thanks to Michael Kors and Marchesa, I'm now officially looking into the life of a jetsetting socialite or maybe a major movie star. Who else...

Cult Of Individuality

(0) Comments | Posted February 15, 2012 | 10:00 AM

We spend so much of each Fashion Week and the months following it talking about trends, shoehorning each great piece under the larger categories that we deem "in" that season. But just take a look at the rise of the street style photographer to recognize that it is the individual...

Strong, powerful, successful...those are the images that came to mind today as DKNY, Diane von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham and Derek Lam filled their runways with clothing meant for sophisticated women who take work and play very seriously.

Days Of Wine And Roses

(1) Comments | Posted February 12, 2012 | 12:16 PM

After seasons of dresses, dresses, and more dresses, trousers are stepping back into the spotlight. From the leg-lengthening stove pipe flares that reminded me (in a good way) of Tom Ford's legendary Gucci collections to the '70s-style pantsuits at Rachel Zoe, wearable pants stormed the runways.

A Color Palette Emerges

(0) Comments | Posted February 11, 2012 | 10:02 AM

It's only the end of day two at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but the color palette for the season has claimed its dominance. Wines, maroons, and rusts lead the charge in a deeply autumnal color palette. Greens range from dark forest to hinting at peacock blue to a dull chartreuse. And...

Day One Of New York Fashion Week

(0) Comments | Posted February 10, 2012 | 10:01 AM

Spring 2012 is all about colorblocking, and by the looks of some of the beginning shows of Fall 2012, next season will be as well. Almost every look at BCBG Max Azria involved an element of colorblock, and even the wide stripes at Richard Chai love seemed large enough to...
