    Lacoste Fall 2015

    Cult-favorite Wes Anderson film The Royal Tenenbaums came to life on the runway yesterday via Felipe Oliviera Baptista’s latest Lacoste collection. No wonder, since the beloved flick was a key inspiration for Baptista this season. ‘ There was Richie Tenenbaum, in his usual khaki suit paired with a polo and a coordinating headband. Margot Tenenbaum’s go-to fur jacket was represented

    Hervé Léger By Max Azria Fall 2015

    Gaudí not gaudy, chéris. While sticking to the brand’s tried-and-true body-con forms, Lubov Azria found some divine inspiration in the surrealist artist’s La Sagrada Família cathedral in Barcelona. The lines and patterns of each dress mimicked details in the famed structure that will leave Léger fans swooning. One highlight was a grey number with thoughtfully-placed seams

    Tibi Fall 2015

    Inuit chic? Yes, that’s what Tibi designer Amy Smilovic was going for for Fall, with a crisp, clean-lined take on coziness inspired by the Arctic, done in lots of nudes and arctic whites, dark neutrals (navy, chocolate, merlot), cut with icy hues like seafoam and lavender. Rich knits and tasteful bits of furriness softly accented the

    Alexander Wang Fall 2015

    Completely noir and heavy on the attitude, Alexander Wang‘s latest collection was pretty goth-y, with tons of ball-chain trim, very boxy silhouettes, and a touch of red and black plaid. To differentiate things in an all-black collection, Wang toyed with texture (a velvet tux jacket, for example, or a great, curvy-seamed satin jacket and mini combo), and

    Misha Nonoo Fall 2015

    As a welcome reprieve from the thumping techno beats or throwback ‘70s tunes found on  most catwalks, Misha Nonoo hired Decoda, a live string ensemble, to serenade her audience. Often influenced by art, this season Nonoo looked to Tracy Emin’s The Last Great Adventure Is You, an exhibit focusing on the intricacies of a woman’s life. The artist’s work in

    BCBGMAXAZRIA Fall 2015

    What to wear when the temp drops into single digits? BCBGMAXAZRIA has you covered. Over-the-knee boots, neck warmers, quilted coats with fur touches, tunics—with this well-styled array, if nothing else, you’ll be shivering in style.

    Suno Fall 2015

    Care for a bit of madness? At Suno, designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty used Bertha Mason, the more than slightly insane Charlotte Brontë character, as their starting point. The message was conveyed through busy prints and a range of silhouettes, both of which the label has plenty of experience in executing deftly. However, this time the patterns fluctuated

    Tanya Taylor Fall 2015

    Fashion and fishing might not be the most obvious of pairings, but Tanya Taylor found inspiration for her latest collection from fishing lure. Unexpected? Yes. Kitschy? Absolutely not. The designer offered a slew of young swingy shapes in a wash of pinks and orange and blues. A bright plaid pattern adorned a sweet dress, anchored

    Sally LaPointe Fall 2015

    When a designer does something right, why mess with the equation? Sally LaPointe knows her way around a proper pant, a fur top, and swingy skirts, she stuck to that foolproof combination this season. Movement was a big story here: skirts swished with fringe and pants featured waist ties that floated along. For accessories, mile-high

    Nicole Miller Fall 2015

    A mix of colorful fur, mystical prints, and plenty of dark glamour was Nicole Miller’s latest equation for Fall. While she may have sourced her initial inspiration from mythic arts and dark force paintings, the collection had that modern day cool factor, thanks to the ripped tights and metallic heels that accompanied each look. She

    Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2015

    While the sky-high Louboutins may have put the mods on the Cushnie et Ochs runway (the casting included Crystal Renn and Devon Windsor) into another stratosphere, a view of the world from a far-up vantage point is exactly where Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs found their inspiration. They viewed various images of the world from

    Zimmermann Fall 2015

    Zimmermann’s palette of rich hues certainly warmed up a  very frigid second day of NYFW. Drawing inspiration from interior designs of the ‘60s, and incorporating silhouettes that nodded at the ‘70s, designers Nicky and Simone Zimmermann showcased their fall/winter collection, which felt effortlessly cool. “It was really pretty crazy back here, and you have no

    Kate Spade New York Fall 2015

    Kate Spade New York’s Deborah Lloyd is a master of whimsy and color. Roald Dahl’s fantastical children’s novels like Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox were the cheeky inspiration for this season. Foxes snuck their way onto a dress and a clutch. Plus, fox fur mittens? Super chic.

    Marissa Webb Fall 2015

    “Everyone always wants to hear about a new inspiration, but I’m doing my same themes of menswear inspired pieces mixed with feminine pieces,” said Marissa Webb backstage before her show for her eponymous collection. There’s nothing wrong with sticking to a very specific DNA; look where that’s taken Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani. That being

    Frame Denim Fall 2015

    Frame Denim’s name might allude to collections that are purely denim-driven. But three years after its inception, the label now involves ready-to-wear for the first time. The inspiration for this range was the ’70s, most notably the American take on the key styles of the era, based on how Europeans were dressing at the time. This translated to

    Valentino Couture Spring 2015

    There’s something about Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli‘s clothes for Valentino that make us want to run through some ancient romantic castle and pretend we’re in a fairy tale. As it turns out, that romantic notion was exactly what they were going for, quite literally, with poetry sewn onto some of the gowns. They
