    Tory Burch Fall 2015

    Tory Burch is truly jet set, and her Fall 2015 collection was a modern Marrakech Express. Woven rugs hung on the walls and blanketed the floor of 583 Park, the very fancy uptown party space. Jacquard coats in exotic prints were named “Essaouira”, after the small beach hamlet outside Marrakech that Jimi Hendrix wrote the song

    Rodarte Fall 2015

    Upon entering Center548 for a Rodarte show, there’s a palpable sense of anticipation. The sets tend to evoke a mysterious and magical vibe, leaving the audience wondering what Laura and Kate Mulleavy have up their sleeves each season. This time around, it was a glorious mash-up of sumptuous furs, luscious leathers, a bit of cashmere, a healthy dose of lace,

    Vera Wang Fall 2015

    No frills! Save for a sprinkling of floral embellishments, Vera Wang’s Fall collection was solidly black and white. It was all about slouchy monochromatic downtown cool. Even the A-line micro mini dresses had an ease to them, and those boots? J’adore! All perfect for pounding that NYC pavement.

    Zero + Maria Cornejo Fall 2015

    Sitting front row at Maria Cornejo’s Fall runway show were the likes of Emily Mortimer and Cindy Sherman. These are exactly the type of women Cornejo was designing for: strong, independent, and creative. Those descriptives sum up Cornejo’s latest collection, too. In a strong color story of black and white, with a bit of blue and

    Rag & Bone Fall 2015

    Remember the ’90s? Well, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of Rag & Bone definitely do and they’re aiming to bring it back for Fall. This meant shiny satin numbers lined with lace, like a burnt orange skirt and an oxblood jumpsuit, as well as cross-body messenger bags. We may have some reservations about the return of swishy

    Jenny Packham Fall 2015

    Known for her red carpet-ready intuitions, Jenny Packham stuck to her guns for Fall. Creamy chiffon gowns, gem-encrusted column dresses, and draped silk numbers dominated on her runway this season and are bound to find their way onto a tapis rouge shortly. Packham got a bit adventurous with this collection, which got its starting point from

    Ovadia & Sons Fall 2015

    Brothers Shimon and Ariel Ovadia are the new heroes of menswear and their stellar show at Pier 59 proved why editors and customers alike have decided they are (still) the next big new thing. The show opened with a black, white and grey palate. Turtlenecks were worn under button-down shirts, houndstooth came in large and

    Zac Posen Fall 2015

    When Naomi Campbell closes a show in a Cinderella-esque sparkly pink ball gown, that’s a real fashion moment. Cheers and a standing ovation ensued at Zac Posen. Plus! Pleated flowing silks were stunning on a golden skirt,  and on a forest green dress with cut-outs worn by muse Anna Cleveland (fittingly, she twirled down the runway

    Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2015

    How did Tommy Hilfiger underscore his whole all-American designer identity for Fall? For starters, he created a football field at the Park Avenue Armory to trot out his latest wares at his 30th anniversary show. A stream of top models, including Anna Ewers, Malaika Firth, Jourdan Dunn, Liu Wen, and Gigi Hadid hit the field to show

    Thom Browne Fall 2015

    At Thom Browne‘s latest show, guests were perched on wooden bleachers facing each other, peering down at a model in all white, seemingly dead and lying flat on a stretcher as two male nurses with angel wings embroidered on their jackets circled her curiously. Then Björk’s melodic wailing came on the speakers and it began

    Donna Karan Fall 2015

    New York City’s illuminated nighttime skyline was the apropos backdrop chez Donna Karan this season. The mostly-black collection will be adored Donna’s die-hard, sophisticated New York-based clientele, and certainly will appeal beyond Gotham; what’s not to love about chic, textural studies in layering, rendered in noir? A thick brown leather shearling jacket and a heavy white suede

    Carolina Herrera Fall 2015

    A wave of elegance washed over Carolina Herrera’s runway this season. Elegance is par for the course for the reigning queen of grace and polish, but water was the motif that ran throughout this collection. To wit: A light blue floor-length skirt with a cascading wave of fabric and silvery reflective embellishments or a gown

    Houghton Fall 2015

    Brimming with menswear-inspired styles, Katharine Polk yet again looked towards Katharine Hepburn for a dose of easy-chic inspiration. This meant many impressive jackets, low-slung trousers, and long layers of knits. As for glamorous dresses? There were plenty of those, too, from a golden number with a wrap and twist detail to a black lace frock

    Pamella Roland Fall 2015

    It’s always a glamorous affair when the doyenne of evening wear, Pamella DeVos, unveils a collection under her Pamella Roland label. Fall 2015 was no exception to that, and the designer turned back the clock to change things up this season. First off, she started her collection with a tuxedo, inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s Le

    Opening Ceremony Fall 2015

    A Kodak moment: The Opening Ceremony Fall 2015 collection harkened back to a (quite literal) time where loose shapes were de rigueur, and tangible film ruled supreme. Several looks were even emblazoned with the Kodak logo and a color palette that felt like a late ‘80s homage to a simpler time. If it wasn’t clear from

    Derek Lam Fall 2015

    Stylish, simple, versatile, and everyday wear is what Derek Lam is selling. There were wardrobe must-haves like a strapless tea-length cream dress or a sleek pantsuit in burnt orange. Classic trench coats came with slightly exaggerated lapels for a subtle dose of style. It’s these unique twists on classics that makes Lam’s pieces covetable and

    Prabal Gurung Fall 2015

    Chalet-ready knit sweaters, a fur coat in Native American print, and a fiery orange toggle coat. You may want to take these clothes for a stroll down Madison Avenue rather than a hike in the mountains, but the latter served as Gurung’s inspiration. Last season it was the Himalayas, this season it’s upstate New York.
