Christian Siriano celebrates his 10 Year Anniversary with a knockout collection of 72 looks shown on his usual diverse models. He just gets better and better and never compromises his design philosophy….Siriano is, of course, known for his drop-dead red carpet looks but his style is all about the person wearing the clothes. While the majority of the collection was evening there were day pieces to pay attention to as well. And, of course, the shoes, always the shoes!!!!This is a color I will be watching for the next few weeks….obviously red isn’t new to our wardrobes but so far I am seeing it in all collections either full-blown as in the examples above or as accents or accessories.Two trends here….the midriff or cutouts and the opulence of this exquisite full ruched tulle skirt….magnificent! …Ombre metallic in purple and turquoise let’s see if this goes further….. Black is in every collection (with a couple of exceptions) thus far and teamed with metallic, fresh, modern and chic. Is black a trend, yes, I believe it is and metallic and/or shine is as well.Which brings me to Tom Ford and Alexander Wang….first up Tom Ford.
Still, his trademark cut outs, love the jewelry and shoes and for once, I can say I like the leggings….in silver metallic.And then a throwback to the ’80’s but I want you to look at the print combinations and either pattern or textured tights, we are already seeing these as trends as well as the feeling of patchwork for it’s tunic…just saying!!!!
Alexander Wang a predominately black collection with a splash of color.Jeremy Scott loves to play along with us with color, pattern and whimsy making him the darling of the cool music lovelies such as Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus and, of course, those who want to follow their trend and Jeremy’s….note the pattern, the color, the tights, the shoes and one can’t disregard the wigs! From fun and games to feminine looks set in a garden of pink carnations…Tory Burch shows us trends that are both fashion-forward and understandable. A boho look of print combos and a perfect dress in an orange-red. Not a fan of the shoe looks more spring/summer to me!Jason Wu shows the orange-red with midriff top and wrapped skirt and a classic black look for after five.Tomas Maier brings a new luxury to a classic brand Bottega Veneta. I particularly like the casualness of the bathrobe coat and jumpsuit in one of the color combinations of fall shades of pumpkin, a working of patchwork….and, of course, black for evening.
Obviously these are just a few of the multitute of collections being shown in New York. There are many new designers that I will touch upon in the coming days and weeks….stay tuned.
