New York Fashion Week is winding down and the tribe will soon begin to make its way through Europe. Before we depart from style coverage, however, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite looks from fashion week. Below is a sampling of the the most playful collections and our favorite collections.
Fashion must not always be serious. Who can resist fashionable irony, sartorial suggestion or an inside joke from your favorite garmento? We loved Ostwald Helgason's motifs that seem inspired by Jeff Koons' balloon sculpture. (Ya think?) Alexander Wang poked fun of the black box parental warning labels currently used on video games and music. Jeremy Scott's colorful collection was irresistible and the his "Earth Sucks" tee is destined to be a editorial showcase.
Once in a while you go to a fashion show and you fall in love. We aren't talking about the love you have for a cute puppy on the street. A great fashion show can be as intoxicating as the perfect first kiss. Prabal Gurung was one of those instances where grace meets fashion forward. We loved the elegance of the collection that was given a twist of modern personalty by way of pastels and acid bright colors. Against many odds Victoria Beckham has made a name for herself among fashion elite. This season she even gained more respect as she turned in her expected body-con focus into a collection that is both crisp and polished. This season Milly caught us off guard. We were expecting a procession of her lady-like Madison Avenue shift dresses but instead got a refreshing dose of goth care of lots of fishnetting.
