    Lacoste Spring 2015

    Despite the fact that the U.S. Open is taking place a hop, skip, and a jump from fashion week, notorious tennis-focused label Lacoste had other sports in mind. First up was football. And we have to say, Felipe Oliveira Baptista‘s take on a game day jersey or field-side anorak would have us engrossed in the sport

    Baja East Spring 2015

    For their first-ever runway show, the hommes behind Baja East, Scott Studenberg and John Targon, offered up a spate of unisex threads, starting off with the blues. There were cozy cashmere knits, ribbed bra tops and shorts, interspersed with a bikini, then interrupted with tunics for the boys. The tunics took it up a notch, arriving in

    Prabal Gurung Spring 2015

    Back to the Himalayas. Once again, Gurung revisited his native Nepal, but new references included the national flower (rhododendron), trekking maps, and mountain landscapes. If you missed all that and focused instead on the great pantsuit you plan to wear at New Yorkers for Children, well, we don’t blame you.

    Peter Som Spring 2015

    Som’s prints and black graphic check overlays, topping off crisp shirt dresses, were so pointedly visual, they’ll look decidedly Som when you trot them out. Isn’t that just the kind of pointed message every designer aims for without having to splash their name and logo over everything? Every Spring, florals and stripes pop up like groundhogs

    Hervé Léger Spring 2015

    Dishing up their signature fare, Lubov and Max Azria kept the silhouettes at Hervé Léger body-con and very feminine. But there weren’t just pretty bandage dresses to peek at; the inspiration this season were strong Japanese female warriors, who oftentimes fought alongside the samurai. Thus, hemlines were longer and necklines were a bit more modest

    Mara Hoffman Spring 2015

    Vying for a dose of happiness to brighten up Spring 2015? Look no further than Mara Hoffman‘s Technicolor collection, which was a mash-up of white, airy pieces decorated with muted rainbow hues. The whole affair had a certain Southwestern influence, which was further proven by a cluster of cacti on the runway. The clothing certainly looked

    Rebecca Taylor Spring 2015

    It was a paradise of pastels chez Rebecca Taylor this season, and her romantic, cinematic vibe was a welcome moment that countered some of the darker fare we’ve seen this season. Bright appliqué florals and flowy lavender skirts are destined for summery breezes. Straight-up pretty. Who can argue with that?

    Tibi Spring 2015

    Amy Smilovic enriched Tibi’s passport this season with an exceptionally global collection. Smilovic injected native traditions from Japan to Peru in the spate of looks, and the soft color palette was comprised of wear-everywhere light greys, whites, and fluid blues, with bits of bright orange, the latter of which signify koi fish. Standouts included a

    Nicole Miller Spring 2015

    It was nice to escape New York for a moment and arrive on the sandy beach of Rio on Nicole Miller‘s runway for Spring. It was a peek of South America through a New Yorker’s point of view; the muted florals and wild prints were tamed with stripes and waves of black. So what’s there to

    Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2015

    If Cleopatra was around today, there’s no doubt she would be fully wardrobed in Cushnie et Ochs threads. The common thread: sexy with a heavy dose of glamour, but a maintained air of coolness. That’s exactly who Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie had in mind for Spring 2015. As Ochs told us, “There’s lots of

    Tanya Taylor Spring 2015

    Tanya Taylor took the whole “fashion is cyclical” adage to heart for Spring. How so? She was influenced by circles, a concept that then spiraled into her use of pinwheels throughout. A concept that could read as kitschy instead translated to retro, especially in a color palette that focused mainly on black, white, and neon orange. But

    Suno Spring 2015

    It was hot last night—and we’re not just talking about the weather. SUNO’s design duo, Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis, turned up the heat at their Spring 2015 showing. Models were plaited with standout fishtail braids (spring beauty trend alert!) and Birkenstock-esque heels commanded the runway with a fresh practicality via effortlessly cool soft pastel pants that

    Wes Gordon Spring 2015

    Simplicity reigns supreme so far this season. There weren’t many frills on Wes Gordon‘s runway, save for a few evening looks with black lace detail. The clean, white and off-white minimalist numbers were chic, plus every year come spring women are always in search of the perfect white dress or blazer that always seems so surprisingly elusive,

    Sally LaPointe Spring 2015

    Less, is more as they say. “Inspired by the idea of spring cleaning: This collection is about streamlining and stripping away. The joy of less, creating confidence and certainty,” read Sally LaPointe’s show notes this season. No doubt, most designers these days might be looking for a way of “streamlining” and “stripping away” with all

    Misha Nonoo Spring 2015

    When we caught up with CFDA Incubator designer Misha Nonoo pre-fashion week, she told us she would be using famed artist Dustin Yellin’s artwork as prints in her collection as part of a collaboration with the designer. She also mentioned he was a bit of a ham. By the time her show rolled around the

    Jason Wu Spring 2015

    Jason Wu dished up a subdued, polished vision for Spring, rendered in shades of olive, white, black, and navy. A series of office-apropos pieces in a muted sage and cream jacquard print kicked things off, finished with streamlined clutches and camel sandals. Tailoring was threaded throughout, crisp and elegant without being overly body con, though a

    Chadwick Bell Spring 2015

    In a hushed Union Square apartment decorated in shades of white and cream, Chadwick Bell returned to fashion week. After sitting out last season, he came back with a bang, albeit a pretty subdued one. Girls in pointy pony hair flats slowly zig-zagged across the thick carpeted floor, swathed in layers of silk, pieces that Bell

    Honor Spring 2015

    Giovanna Randall’s penchant for ‘60s and ’70s era babydoll silhouettes, collars, and bell sleeves (and this year, very belled pants!) mixed with luxuriously feminine fabrics is kind of her thing and it’s garnering her plenty of fans like actress and “it” girl Zosia Mamet, who attended, donning one of the designer’s canary yellow frocks. Julie
