NYC S/S08- So Far

Colours: Navy, and a muted-gold/mustard yellow

Patterns- not so much, but those that did show seemed like linear graphic abstracts or hundreds of erratic brushstrokes

Biggest trend: Volume, Volume, Volume!! Almost all designers added extra padding or the illusion of some....could be seen mostly in the many versions of the bunched and gathered bubble hem or a boxed-out hip/exaggerated pear-shape.

Favorite Show-so far- Proenza Schouler- Sure this is apredictable pick but in a sea of what often seems to be subdued minimalism PS just stands out! Militaristic, rock references. Lots of Layering. Lovely, wearable texturization in the metallic dresses and skirts (seemed to be ref F/W07 Prada but in a classical and subdued way). Concentration on legs and the waist. All this while still managing to keep up that refined elegance that the boys have come to be known for.

Favorite accessories-so far- jewellery at Vera Wang (pictured above), the shoes at Alexander Wang (multi-coloured, lace-up, saddle-shoe-inspired booty)
