In a show marking the end of his exclusive distribution agreement with Saks, Zac Posen‘s Z Spoke line made an effervescent runway debut. The colors were bright, the styling was quirky and we can’t wait to see the price point.
Earth tones, sheer fabrics and lots of length were on display at Nicole Miller‘s spring/summer 2011 show. he collection, comprised heavily of floor-length pieces, made use of grays, greens and tans in gauzy materials.
We should preface this write-up by confessing that we have a seriously unhealthy obsession with Alexander Wang. Fashion’s current golden boy could walk a garbage bag down the runway, and we’d immediately add it to our list of seasonal must-haves. Thankfully for us, Wang did not walk garbage bags down the runway on Saturday. Instead, it was a collection of light, white, and confectionary-colored creations that featured his signature deconstructed layers and body-skimming silhouettes.
Current fashion world darling Prabal Gurung did not disappoint at his spring/summer 2011 show. Subtle asymmetry was on display, whether it be in colorblocked pieces or the zig-zagging ruffle flourish on a stunning white dress.
While the name Rag & Bone may denote minimalism, their spring/summer 2011 collection is anything but.
Leather seems to be the word on the street — er, runway — again at Cushnie et Ochs this season. Leather shorts, leather pants, leather blazers and even a winged leather dress grace the line’s spring/summer 2011 collection.
Peter Som has been showing a mix bold patterns and bright color for the last three seasons, so it’s comes as no surprise that now the practice is experiencing a moment, Som still does it best. His collection for Spring Summer 2011 is a very girly, very short and very colorful answer to the muted minimalism we’ve seen from Richard Chai, Rachel Comey and BCBG.
Max Azria’s BCBG collection for spring/summer 2011 is pretty. It is. Soft, muted tones of gray, beige, greige and the like pervade, as do gauzy, feminine fabrics.
Cool classics, girly silhouettes and quietly sexy looks abounded on the runway of Rachel Comey’s Spring 2011 collection. Moving slightly away from her oft-eccentric aesthetic, Comey presented a warm weather collection overflowing with understated elegance and subtle refinement –- without being the least bit boring.
What do you get when you cross the classic prep of American fashion and the Parisienne chic of French lines? Organic by John Patrick.
Vena Cava knows cool. A little bit boho, a little bit artsy — each season leaves us lusting for more. While we are excited for fall to kick into high gear (sweaters!), Vena Cava’s spring/summer 2011 collection has us daydreaming about flirty skirts and gauzy fabrics. The five best looks, after the jump.
We love fashion, but we know not everybody has the time to scroll through every look on the runway. Consider this your Cliff Notes to the shows. First up: Richard Chai.
