New York Fashion Week: day six

Another day of lots of big names: Badgley Mischka, Hervé Leger by Max Azria, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and Vera Wang. I find most of these collections fantastic, but I liked some shows of less known designers too. I’m going to write about six (!!!) shows today. To compare, first day of Fashion Week I reviewed only TWO shows. How am I going to keep you updated with London, Milan and Paris fashion week in the next few weeks?!
Badgley Mischka
This collection is inspired by the Britisch aristocrats in the 1988 film White Mischief. Lots of pastels and a very sophisticated feeling throughout the show. I found this show so nice to watch. I just loved the whole setting!

Dennis Basso
I never heard of this brand before, but I’m surprised! You can see lots of shiny dresses, impressive evening gowns, ruffles and nice prints. I have to say I don’t like some of those cut-out dresses and I’m not a fan of fur for spring/summer, but over all I’m positive.

Vera WangWow! Vera Wang doesn’t only design gorgeous bridal gowns, she created a fierce powerwomen collection for spring/summer 2011, inspired by the Kill Bill movies. It is my favourite show of this sixth day of Fashion week. I find it really feminine though there are lots of masculine elements in this collection. I loved the use of black and greys, drapery and tulle and the fact that it’s so different from those gorgeous bridal gowns. Vera Wang is gifted.

Marc by Marc Jacobs
Remember this article? This brand is one of my personal favourites. Unfortunately the nearest Marc by Marc Jacobs store is in Paris.

While watching the show, I really wished it were spring again. I would love to see people wearing these clothes. Lots of bright colours, flower prints, sexy shorts and cute dresses. I found it really hard to select only six looks out of this show, so I decided to select six women looks and six men looks.

Hervé Leger by Max AzriaHervé Leger is probably my favourite label for women. Maybe it’s just because I’m a man and I love to see women in sexy dresses, well Hervé Leger’s dresses ARE sexy. This whole bondage dress concept is so great. I mean, you immediately recognise a Hervé Leger dress, but these dresses are never the same. There’s always something different.

Anyway, Max Azria keeps surprising me with his Hervé designs. Okay, the idea stays the same: bondage dresses, lace, lingerie. But it still works! So yesterday I liked it again… of course.

Elie TahariJust as Dennis Basso, Elie Tahari is a complete new name to me. And just as Dennis Basso, Elie Tahari surprised me. The women part of this collection to me seems to represent today’s working woman (and maybe mother). It’s modern, chic, fashionable and, I think, above all wearable. The men part is just as modern, chic, fashionable and wearable as the women part, but is much more casual. Women could go to office in a look from this collection, men don’t.
Over all, this show is my biggest surprise yet.
