For Fall/Winter 2013, Catherine Malandrino was inspired by the work of Art Deco era interior designer Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann. The dark color story of black, oxblood, olive and blue looked surprisingly soft– the geometric patterns were sweetened by the contrast of loose lines and an unexpectedly relaxed fit. Favorites include the leather and velvet pieces as well as the black and nude patterned dresses. …
Rafael Cennamo Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week
Everything was aglitter at Rafael Cennamo F/W 2013. Having also seen the spring collection, I thought that the fall collection was a good next step forward. This one appeared better cut to my eye, as well as somehow more wearable than the last without losing any of the drama and flair I associate with the brand. …
Son Jung Wan F/W 2013 | New York Fashion Week
Favorites from Son Jung Wan F/W 2013, which had an emphasis on outerwear. I’m liking those wrap jackets with the fur collars (and the leopard, of course). …

NYFW for Re-Mix-Her
While Caitlin’s been busy moving to a new city… I’ve been writing for her blog! Have you seen my post on Re-Mix-Her? It’s got photos of shows I’ve yet to post here (including Catherine Malandrino, Son Jung Wan, and Rafael Cennamo). Take a look, and don’t forget to get acquainted with her signature style while you’re there!
PARKCHOONMOO Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week
Nothing matters more to me than the shows. Not the parties, gifts from brands, lounges, or anything else… so sitting front row is the absolute highlight of my fashion week.
The look at PARKCHOONMOO was stark and would have been downright severe if not for the plethora of soft draping. A collection done in black and white with hints of blue is of course practically enough to win me over immediately. I also appreciated very much that this collection actually looks like I could wear it during the fall and winter. I feel that I’ve really had enough of sheer pastels for a season or two. Interestingly, the fabrics used in the collection are all tech fabrics and the leather treated to be water resistant– something that would be amazingly useful for New York’s random rain showers.
Lots and lots of photos. You have been warned. …

Letterbox By Misha Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week
I’ve been seeing a lot of collections with strong vintage influences this season (though just as many futuristic ones, too). Sweet, pretty Letterbox By Misha Fall 2013 had a very soft elegance and a little bit of a 1950s feel. I could definitely see this collection being picked up by Anthropologie. …
