Fashion Week Diary: NYC Spring 2010, Day 8

ISAAC MIZRAHI: It’s hard not to love Isaac Mizrahi if you’ve ever watched him on TV and it’s even harder not to love his Spring 2010 collection. There was a slightly masculine feel about some of the pieces, from the hats to the cropped blazers to the tuxedo ruffles, but mixed with overtly feminine pieces like sequins, watercolor prints and ruffled skirts, he never really tipped the balance. We also loved the patent Oxford booties also.

NAEEM KHAN: Naeem Khan’s Spring 2010 collection stood out for two reasons: his a-maz-ing dresses and expert styling. His signature evening gowns were embellished with beads and sequins and then paired with oversized, chunky necklaces and skintight, thigh boots. He also provided us with younger pieces, including separates like a bright pink, pouf skirt (above) and jeweled tops. The theme for the collection, according to the designer, was “punk Raj” and from the looks of it, things went his way.

PHI: Designer Andreas Melbostad’s Spring 2010 collection for Phi was powerful, in one word. Everything he sent down the runway was hard and tough. There was a mix of sharp blazers, sheer tees, stud detail, biker jackets, chain mail, buckles, corset skirts, and skinny pants (complete with on-trend cut outs). Add to this a collection of heavy boots to top it all off and you have yourself a strong, durable collection that consisted mostly of blacks and whites.

(L-R) CALVIN KLEIN, RALPH LAUREN, L’WREN SCOTT, TOMMY HILFIGER:  Calvin Klein kept things distinctly minimal, as always, with a series of soft silhouettes like the white bubble dress (above) and other gorgeous cotton pieces, from loose pants to slinky dresses. At Ralph Lauren there was a clear prairie theme with denim overalls, cotton floral dresses and neck kerchiefs taking center stage. As the collection progressed, he moved into more feminine fabrics while still working the theme. L’Wren Scott’s Spring 2010 collection had a very retro, 50s vibe, with a lot of polka dot chiffon and tea dresses, before moving into a more 70s vibe with suits and wide-brimmed bohemian hats. The Tommy Hilfiger collection was easy and breezy, with nautical stripes, loose-fit tees and cotton shorts. Every silhouette had a definite relaxed vibe about it, as did the models.

    i love the isaac mizrahi collection – always a fan of feminine/masculine contrast! and phi was awesome too, love how she did the bandagey pants, corsets and studs but without too much black.
