Almost as quickly as it arrived, New York Fashion Week has been and gone, and the fashion pack has bundled up their outerwear and headed to London for a fresh set of shows. On that note, it is time to take a look back at what went down during the final four days and discuss which shows we loved, who sat front row, and more. Read on!
It is safe to say that Marc Jacobs rarely disappoints, but his fall 2012 show was a fashion wonderland, to say the least. Inspired by a huge array of sources, including fashion insiders like Anna Piaggi, the show featured a wild and wonderful mash-up of multicolored fur, pilgrim shoes, paisley pieces, and oversized Jamirquai-esque hats.
Although Rodarte is never light on fantasy elements, the fall 2012 collection felt a little more accessible, a little more wearable than seasons past. This season, the Mulleavy sisters were inspired by the history of Australia, and hints of that were everywhere—some dresses featured traditional Aboriginal dot art, while other dresses evoked thoughts of Australia’s first settlers. Another bonus for viewers: Star Wars director George Lucas, who wedged himself between Dakota Fanning and Natalie Portman.
We always look forward to seeing what Proenza Schouler’s designer duo Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough have come up with, and this season it was an East-meets-West collection. This meant boxy silhouettes with hints of waxed leather, colors like turquoise green and lacquer red, and pheasant embellishments.
