NYFW Checkpoint

We're quite a few days into NYFW and I haven' done a proper post about it. I feel like it's something that I should mention it more in depth than a quick little blurb fangirling over Saint Laurent and how surprised I was by how much I liked Alexander Wang (both are true, but still). Nothing gets me going more than fall collections, truly nothing. I am a lover of fall through and through, so to have these collections to sort through in the dead of winter...I feel #blessed.

The best way for me to always do this is to just go alphabetically, like class role call. But better. Much, much better.



Alexander Wang still kept the sporty, edgy street style vibe, but amped it up with textures and bold, block patterns. Zero + Maria Cornejo stuck to neutrals, relying on textures like furs and pebbled leather to amp up the slouchy and boxy looks. Maiyet gave us #AllTheBlack so yes, I'm the heart eyed emoji right now.

It was so great to see The Row back in New York this season! Not surprisingly, the Olsens stuck to their simple designs, utilizing neutrals and lots of oversized proportions for the fall collection. Tommy Hilfiger gave us a lot of playful skirts and dresses, mixing up patterns to add some dimension to the collection. Carolina Herrera gave us some gorgeous muted tones and the most incredible pop of eggplant.

Diane von F├╝rstenberg was busy, busy, busy as usual and of course, it worked somehow, even between the crazy patterns, #LayersOnLayers styling. Rachel Zoe gave us all a reason to banish the no white after labor day rule with this one. And hopping along with Zoe, Prabal Gurung gave us some more fall and winter whites!

Christian Siriano was all about chunky knits, gray crochet, primary colors, and lots and lots of volumes. Tibi gave us cool and simple with a lot of menswear inspired styles and silhouettes, with a pop of satin for a little bit of a switch up.
