    Zac Posen Spring 2015

    Ever the artist, Zac Posen created an exceptionally sculptural collection for Spring. In his show notes, Posen touched upon wanting to create clothes with seams that “walked”, but in all actuality, these seams were dancing. To wit: the beautifully upwardly-curved neckline on a cardinal A-line mermaid gown or the carefully draped eyelet back on a pearlescent day dress. Other

    Milly Spring 2015

    “Have you been to the rooftop garden at the Met?” Michelle Smith asked us before her Spring 2015 show. The designer’s starting point for her collection: the Dan Graham sculptures that adorn the sky high bar and garden. That might not be entirely obvious after viewing the vibrant collection, although it certainly explained the silver screens

    Veronica Beard Spring 2015

    This season, the sister-in-law duo behind Veronica Beard, Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard, came up with intriguing separates and dresses done in an airy color scheme of light greys, textured whites, tropical greens, sky blues, clementine oranges, and subdued yellows. Standouts included a simple yet expertly-cut black blazer and white button down paired with zebra print Bermuda shorts, while a pale blue and white

    Lela Rose Spring 2015

    Ultra femme was the M.O. at Lela Rose for Spring. B&W was the predominant color scheme, punctuated with baby blues, muted yellows, cloudy greys and vivacious magenta tones playing supporting roles. Every piece was cut with a ladylike appeal. An all-white flouncy mid-calf dress bared the shoulders and accentuated the waist. A matching pencil skirt and blouse were scattered with blue

    Rag & Bone Spring 2015

    As editors settled into the riser-style seating avec tipples to sip and popcorn to much, the pounding music for Rag & Bone began. Out walked a mostly monochromatic lineup of white and black garments, interspersed with some army-print garb and a scattering of florals. Going along with the army theme were a number of anorak

    Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2015

    Maria Cornejo did her usual minimalistic thing, to great effect. She wanted this collection to exude positivity and serenity while the world at large battles darker times; deep, non? Crisp whites, stark black and whites paired with cool greys, rich oceanic blues, and the occasional pop of turquoise and blush pink. The outcome? Very tranquil. B&W

    Versus by Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2015

    A match made in heaven: Anthony Vaccarello does a provocative, barely-there mini like the best of them. When he’s working the Versace vibe, complete with dangerously short hemlines, Grecian motifs, and Medusa medallions, he truly shines. So did the front row, which included Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Naomi Campbell. These unabashedly saucy, impressively short little LBDs are just the

    Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2015

    Serving up Spring as a mix of demure, sexy, and youthful, all with a smile, was the equation this season for Diane von Furstenberg. With her new creative director Michael Herz taking center stage, the DvF brand has been given a whole new perspective, and it’s as happy as can be. It was a major

    Tim Coppens Spring 2015

    Public School isn’t the only menswear designer edging into the womenswear market. Tim Coppens offered up an expanded selection of pieces for the cool girls alongside his usual spate of looks for hommes. And the result was a smash hit. So much so that we overheard the Barneys team discussing how large of an order they

    Nanette Lepore Spring 2015

    Nanette Lepore is clearly in a cheery mood for Spring. Look one proved this point, thanks to a sweet yellow frock featuring big pockets and a collar erred the line between saccharine and slightly sensual, with a deep neckline. That bright hue was peppered throughout, appearing on a silk paisley short and leather platform heels with

    Vivienne Tam Spring 2015

    Eastern chic! Vivienne Tam’s pulled inspiration from the Ming and Qing dynasties for her Spring looks. Her modern spinoff included all mesh everything, finished off with bright blue, red and yellow embroidery detailing. Standouts included striking tops and floor length dresses. The wide-ranging collection offered looks casual enough for cocktail party as well as the tapis rouge ready statement

    DKNY Spring 2015

    She’s gone graphic. At DKNY this season, short dresses were layered with calf-length skirts and paired with platform sneakers. The sum of those parts oozed street cred. While recent seasons have fixated on the ’90s in many respects, the kooky, clash-y hues and bright patterns at play this time around felt a little more vintage

    Thakoon Spring 2015

    As if sensing that the crowd was due for a vacation, Thakoon took us on a welcome trip to Rio for Spring, inspired by the 1959 film Black Orpheus. Reflecting the season’s emerging tropical trend for Spring, there were plenty of palm fronds to digest, but not in the expected white and green color palette. Instead,

    Edun Spring 2015

    No, those prints on Danielle Sherman’s runway were not of the leopard variety—they were actually inspired by Côte d’Ivoire kponyungo masks that ward off evil spirits. And those fabulous medallion necklaces? A collaboration with Nigerian Tuareg jeweler, Moussa Albaka. As for the kimono-like pants and tops, we’ll be living in them come spring. Et vous?

    Yigal Azrouël Spring 2015

    “For me, the palm tree is a woman; it represents the strong woman who knows how to carry herself and who is beautiful, no mater what,” Yigal Azrouël told us about his latest collection. As you might guess, there were plenty of palm trees and accompanying motifs in the designer’s Spring 2015 showing. But his

    Hood By Air Spring 2015

    Around 40 minutes after the scheduled showtime, the Hood By Air choir took to their microphones, and the spectacle began. But before we get to the clothes, half the fun of Shayne Oliver‘s fashion week event is his audience. A vast majority were decked out in T-shirts and pants, stamped with the HBA initials and solidified

    LIE SANGBONG Spring 2015

    For his spring show, Lie Sang Bong devised a collection of more than just ornately constructed garments. Dubbed Dream Road, this collection was created in response to the maritime disaster in South Korea last April. “It’s about hope,” said Lie, who was deeply affected by the disaster in his native country. The clothes displayed positivity

    Alexander Wang Spring 2015

    Forget simply outfitting his models in sneakers on the runway: Alexander Wang took the casual kicks conceit that’s ruled the runways as of late from head to toe, whipping up streamlined looks inspired by iconic sportif wear. To wit: a cluster of green leather collared all-white looks that looked tennis court bound (with a little

    Altuzarra Spring 2015

    What do you get when you mix Rosemary’s Baby, Moroccan blankets, Renaissance architecture, and deflated 18th-century dresses? Subtle, sexy brilliance on Altuzarra’s Spring runway. Expect to crave some gingham, based on the first few looks, and the B&W stripes that followed didn’t disappoint, either. The aforementioned blankets took shape in a couple silhouettes (a coat, some dresses,

    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
