I feel knowledgeable again. However, from a designer stand point (in my mind) as soon as it has hit the runway, it's old news. Well, it used to be this way - I saw a lot of repeats on the runway from previous seasons. Bright colors are still being embraced (which I am happy to see), tailored trousers, there was still an abundance of fringe (still a fav), the patterns got a little funkier, and lots of crisp white along with an array of neutrals. While some designers took a minimalist approach (Chloe, Derek Lam, No.21, The Row), which I believe is carrying over from fall, others like Vera Wang and Dsquared2 took the opposite road. Some fresh trends to the scene, that I was very pleased to see, included the three-quarter-length skirts (lady-like dressing is back), the use of sheer and silk materials (I do love the sheer skirts), and the pops of coral red!
Here are some of my favs, but check my other blog for my complete review.
