New York Fashion Week : Day 5 Runway Report
Morning dreamers! Hope you’re well, energized and ready to kick some butt today.
Turns out, I’m actually really liking the idea of the Runway Report for each day of Fashion Week. It’s a great way to wrap things up and showcase collections I don’t have quite enough time to fully review.
On that note, we’ve GOT to talk Day 5. Day 5 of New York Fashion Week showcased an extremely eclectic group of designers, each with their very own approach to Spring fashion. From Thom Browne‘s famous theatrics, to Donna Karan and Caroline Herrara‘s sophisticated and regal gowns there was something for everyone, and every scene. Even Tommy Hilfiger got into the mix, in what was a surprising favorite of the day for me. (See that full collection here.) The cool, marching band meets rock-girl vibe with rich burgundy was a really hit on the runway, featuring several covetable items – including some killer jackets.
One other (sad) surprise was Zac Posen‘s Spring 2015 Collection, which was a surprise in its disappointment. It was a beautiful collection no doubt, but felt already done by Posen..and when worn on the same model faces, it seemed even more duplicative. But despite it’s downsides, Posen did feature some brilliant pops of color, rounding out the day to be a rainbow of colors (and textures).
Reem Acra was also a standout collection, and probably a personal best collection. It was modern, clean and totally wearable. Even though the models were extremely narrow, it was nice to see lines that would easily flatter a woman with some extra curves to love. And of course, with every passing Reem Acra look – I once again long for some Prom like function to have an excuse to wear such a pretty gown. (But not prom, no way do I want to endure high school another time around ;P)
Day 6 is set to be another big one, with Spring 2015 collections debuting from Rodarte, Naeem Khan, Jenny Packham, Oscar de la Renta and much much more! Are you holding on? Because there’s still way more to come! For now, browse through yesterday’s runway looks AND be sure to let me know which one is your favorite!
And please, if you too are sharing commentary on NYFW, send me your links! While I basically live in a whirlwind right now, I always take a moment to enjoy other’s perspectives from the runway.
On that note, enjoy your day! And, if you are craving more Spring 2015, visit the Fashion Week Directory.
