Tonight, I’m headed to Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 show in NYC! It’s the perfect way to end a great Fashion Week. If you don’t have any plans tonight (and even if you do), check out the live stream above. The pre-show starts at 7:45 p.m. EST and the main event is at 8. Then check back later for our review – or post your own in the comments below. Enjoy the show!
Leave it to Rachel Zoe to make sequined sweatpants look sophisticated. Her casual California cool never comes without an air of elegance. We saw the usual suspects (jumpsuits and maxi dresses) as well as some welcome newcomers (long denim skirts and polished laser cut jackets).
To most women, J. Mendel has always been all about eveningwear (and of course, luxuriant, amazing, high-end furs). But as it goes for any good woman, there comes a time to exit your comfort zone and take on new and uncharted territory. Spring 2014 is J. Mendel’s moment to transition.
New York Fashion Week Roundup 2: Vera Wang, Naeem Khan, Dennis Basso, Timo Weiland, and Mathieu Mirano
For Spring 2014, Vera Wang tackled active wear, and considering she’s Vera Wang, wedding dress designer extraordinaire, it’s less active and more silk gauze. The show started off with a lot of black, and even though it was sheer and soft, the opening numbers felt too somber. Fortunately the tide quickly turned back to the light, airy romanticism we associate with Vera.
It sounds simple: solid black and white separates to take you from day to night. I mean, how many times have you heard those words? But add two others – “Narciso Rodriguez” to the pot and you’ve got something revolutionary. It is almost unfair how good Narciso is at execution. From Spring 2014’s brocade shift dresses to the semi-sheer maxi-skirts, cut to reveal just the right about of leg: Narciso doesn’t just still have it, he has it and plenty more where it came from.
Happily, Oscar enjoys us that way, as well. Last season’s sassy leather leggings and flowing capes gave way to something a little more old-fashioned – and decidedly sassier. Welcome to the 1950s, reimagined. Spring 2014 welcomes nipped-in waists, full and femme skirts, and accessories to send the message home – delicate kidskin gloves and embroidered pearl pumps. The lady is back, and she is not a vamp!
