MBFW Day 8 Recap + Favorites

Just like all the good things in life, Fashion Week comes to an end, and even though I am sad it’s over, I am already looking forward to the September one!

Today began with Ralph Lauren’s collection, which included bright colors, plaid, leather, feathers, as well as the subtle grays and whites:

Hernan Lander had interesting cuts, and a lot of straight lines:

J. Mendel was a perfect combination of fur, flow and fabric. It was a perfect set of “runway to ready to wear” pieces for the fearless fashonistas:

And finally Calvin Klein presented us with a collection full of material that we haven’t seen in such abundance during this fashion week before. And as obvious as it is for the fall, the true genius of CK shines through every single look, because only he could pull it off! I am still asking myself – Was it wool, or was it pure genius?

And there you have it, the wrap up of Fall 2014 NYFW. I am going to miss it. Watching it on my lunch break, writing recaps, sharing my thoughts on the new styles, getting inspired by the designs. The good thing is, Fashion week always comes back!

Even though fall and winter seasons are often perceived as dull and dark, sometimes the soul longs for color, and that’s what Clover Canyon presented.

MBFW Day 6 Recap + Favorites

How is it possible that there are only 2 more days of New York Fashion Week 2014 left? That makes me sad, and happy at the same time. Sad because it’s going to be over so soon, and happy because it’s going to move to other wonderful cities across the globe!

Tory Burch‘s armory inspired collection was a great beginning of the day! The collection was actually inspired by her parents armory, and for some reason I always feel like when it’s family or travel related, the collection is more personal. It’s something the designer let into his/hers imagination, what they accepted and received and what came out in the end. The abundance of dragon and equestrian prints, and Anna Wintour in the front row will definitely add value to the collection.

Presentation by J.Crew was a huge hit on Social Media. The looks were wearable, shoes of course were a lust!

Badgley Mischka showed both every day wear and gowns. The fur hats were my favorite part as you may have already guessed. And yes, one of my friends may have referred to them as Russian Mafia in the house, but they are fit for a queen!

I went out for lunch and coffee with a friend today, and missed the Diesel show. And even though I was kind of upset about it, turns out I didn’t miss much!

Libertine was very interesting and entertaining, but more DIY than I was hoping for it to be.

MM6 Maison Martin Margiela showed his true genius, so did Sean Nicholas Savage, who performed there as well! Do you like to see live performances before/during/after the show? Seems like there’s been quiet a few this week! What do you think?

Pamella Roland‘s collection was full of energy, very structural, almost architectural. Very New York. She took her final bow with her loved ones, who were also in the front row supporting her during the show.

I love watching student shows. I feel like fashion students are like children, their minds haven’t been corrupted by the adult world yet! They let their imagination soar! The Art Institute show gathered 13 designers from different locations throughout the US, and they got the opportunity of a life time!

MBFW Day 4 Recap + Favorites

I can’t believe it’s already day 4 of New York Fashion Week. Of course I got my own fashion fix today when I shopped the Peter Pilotto collection at Target! And in honor of Custo Barcelona show, I wore my Custo Barcelona jacket 😉

The day began with Lela Rose. Her dresses were stunning. But the black and white rose print fabric that she used in some of her looks was above and beyond!

Lela-Rose Lela-Rose

DKNY showed us leather sweatpants, D embellished jackets and shirts, and a good amount of fur.

Katya Zol‘s Mongolia inspired collection was a perfect blend of Fashion and Culture. The flowy silhouettes, golden accessories that gave the word “chunky” a second meaning, the pre-show presentation, it was all thought through, all aligned, a true collection!

Custo Barcelona brought back the mirror aviators, and bangs!

Diane Von Furstenberg celebrated the dress that started it all. Her show ended with gold confetti. Diane, you are golden, and you will always be my inspiration!
DVF DVF DVFVivienne Tam is another designer that’s close to my heart and is in my wardrobe. Her animal prints are everything I want to wear in the fall.

MBFW Day 3 Recap + Favorites

Today’s been filled with meetings and friends, both old and new, and although I was originally planning on spending the day with my sick husband, I ended up spending it elsewhere (more on how I spend my weekends on Monday + a surprise for you!)

I was only looking forward to one show today (compare to 5 tomorrow) – Mara Hoffman’s! How? Have I lost it? It’s only day 3! Even though I am a huge New York Fashion Week fan, I like taking days off, and taking breaks. Who am I kidding, the MBFW is constantly streaming at my house!

Ruffian started the day with some gorgeous colors:

Thank you, Adeam, for this beautiful skirt! Finally someone took the fur and put it somewhere other than where we are used to seeing it!

Herve Leger by Max Azria outdid themselves with this look. And thanks to them, I am now on a search for a perfect white coat!

While Jill Stuart had pieces perfect for work and play:

What did you guys think of Fashion Week Day 3? What were some of your favorite designs?

On the side note: The amount of leather, fur and velvet that I am seeing is above and beyond what I expected, and by the end of day 3 is rather ridiculous!

Hair wise, I liked Emerson!

Son Jung Wan‘s golden lips also didn’t remain unnoticed!

MBFW Day 2 Recap + Favorites

Another fashion filled day has come and gone, and among all the events that happened today, there are a few that I want to highlight the most. Kate Spade presentation, the burst of color and funky attitude. And Rebecca Minkoff show that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time!

But let’s start from the beginning – Zimmerman presented a lot of perfect for layering pieces, that can also be worn as single statement and have the entire outfit revolve around them!

Rebecca Valance‘s looks were directly to the point. The combination of straight lines, simplicity, and wearability was more than 100% present.

Carmen Marc Valvo’s texture play was outstanding. The bold red-orange piece couldn’t scream fall more, than it already does, and secretly make me want to go trick-or-treating. And of course fur is another personal favorite of mine!

Since I couldn’t shut up about Rebecca Minkoff‘s show all day, let’s see what she’s got planned for fall 2014. First of all the boots. These are the only over the knee boots that aren’t tacky or stripper, the only ones I can see myself wearing. The only ones, and of course they are made by RM! Plus the concept of wearing 2 shoulder bags at a time! I am definitely going to need some Rebecca in my life!

Saying I’ve been glued to my phone, laptop screen, iPad, is to say nothing at all. Olympics in Russia? What are you talking about? Fashion Week is happening in New York!

Day 1 favorites include:
