Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Isaac Mizrahi Works the Wintry Commute With His Fall 2010 Collection

by Rachel Yeomans | February 19th, 2010

The high-necked or boatneck zip-front coat has been a strong presence (almost as much as fur) during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. And Isaac Misrahi brought it in full force within his Fall 2010 collection. The collection itself also took the stage with the wintry themed snow falling onto the runway during the show, bringing home that… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Calvin Klein Shows Some Sleeve in His Fall 2010 Collection

by Rachel Yeomans | February 19th, 2010

Calvin Klein is known for his clean straight lines and simple yet very high quality clothing. He changed things up a bit for his Fall 2010 collection. Alongside the clean straight lines, Klein featured a type of starched billow sleeve that added a dimension to his usually straight-forward attire. One of my very first pieces… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Ralph Lauren’s Collection Rides Fashionable Into the Autumn

by Rachel Yeomans | February 19th, 2010

We saw a lot of black come down the runway during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Designer Ralph Lauren decided to veer away from that note and give us browns, grays and florals – I have to say it was a very lovely look for the fall. Big shoulders were also very prominent with the deep velvet… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Brian Reyes’ Fall 2010 Collection Works Architectural Wonderment

by Rachel Yeomans | February 19th, 2010

Brian Reyes worked absolute wonders with taking the simple top and skirt and turning it into a fabulous fashion statement. I love how he constructed the folds of his skirts to lie on top of one another without creating too much volume and instead create a very architectural design that doesn’t overpower a simple top… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Michael Kors Thought Outside of Black With His Fall 2010 Collection

by Rachel Yeomans | February 19th, 2010

There’s something to be said for the color of ‘camel’. It’s very glamorous and goes with just as much variety of color and accessory as does black. I haven’t seen much of it during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as most of the designers have stuck with the darker classic, however it definitely dominated the runway at… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. Tory Burch Tweeds It Up With Her Fall 2010 Collection

by Rachel Yeomans | February 19th, 2010

We haven’t seen too much of the ‘tweed’ look in the collections for Fall 2010. Tory Burch, however, brought the classic to the forefront. There aren’t many dresses or skirt suits that beat the feminine prowess of those in tweed – it pretty much is equivalent to the male power suit – and albeit much… Read more…

There were so many adorable work looks in her collection, albeit most of them required a bit of a longer hemline, but you can’t blame her… Read more…

Not only did Sophie Theallet join the designer crowd of mixing fabrics, but she also brought forth the iconic and adorable working look of the flowing dress and cardigan. There is nothing much sweeter than seeing a young woman bustling about the workplace in a cute dress and cardigan – granted she may be dreaming… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. The Tibi Fall 2010 Collection Mixes Past Working Looks With New Ensembles of the Millennium

by Rachel Yeomans | February 18th, 2010

The Tibi Fall 2010 collection flaunted the classic work look we may remember from the ‘80s and strutted it into the Millennium. We may see the tie-front blouse reminiscent of the Baby Boom era, but we are introduced to the ruffle-front skirt as well, and the long-sleeved top enhanced with a bustier. Who says that… Read more…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. New York. 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2010 Collection

by Rachel Yeomans | February 18th, 2010

Phillip Lim didn’t just steer clear from the safety of black that many designers concentrated on this season, but he went with other color standards and played with their texture. For example, he added pattern to pair of simple dark blue gray pants and instead of featuring a basic white top, he added ruffles to… Read more…
