Fashion Week, New YorkTop 5 Looks from Herve Leger FW 12

Herve Leger = body-conscious bandage dresses. There’s no two ways about it. But for Fall/Winter 2012, designer Max Azria took it one step further and brought a seriously sexy, warrior-equestrian vibe to his lady.

The horizontal bandaging was sleeker this season, spliced into thinner strips that criss-crossed across the ribs and torso like skeletal armor. The highlight of the show were his made-to-measure leather bondage harnesses that fit so closely over the body you couldn’t tell where the dress and harness began. The harnesses went over the shoulder and cinched around the waist. I spied strict instructions back-stage for model fitters informing them, “DO NOT ADJUST BUCKLES” under any circumstances.

While there were some silhouette variations with A-Line and a wide sweeping, pleated finale gown, Leger kept most of his designs figure-hugging enough to please any starlet.  He kept to a popular color palette for Fall, with lots of maroon, taupe, and black, adding some metallic chain prints and threads of glimmer. Long, brushed ponytails and gladiator sandals finished the look. What are your thoughts–would you buy a bandage dress + a harness?

Fashion, Fashion Week, New YorkJill Stuart SS12: Sorbet Hues and Palm Spring Cuteness

How cute is Jill Stuart this season?  Her collection was completely light and fresh, with a sorbet color palette and Palm Spring inspired cuteness. Her Spring collection kept to her girly aesthetic, with playful details like scalloped skirt hemlines, round Peter pan collared blouses, and 3/4 sleeve length macintoshes adding to the fun. A pastel-infused color palette was kicked up a notch, with meyer lemon yellow, coral pinks, and muted electric blues, thrown in with darling palm tree, bird, and petal prints patterns. Mixed in with tailored short suits were silky tops and airy, 70′s inspired silhouettes with v necks, lower waistlines, and skirts full of movement as they swished down the runway.  Overall, the collection was a great mix of light separates and dresses that wouldn’t look out of place in resortwear. It was a seriously beautiful collection and I can’t wait to add some of these cheerful and fun pieces into my closet. What do you think of collection? What are your favorite looks?
