Alexander Wang Fall 2014 Collection

Alexander Wang Fall 2014 Collection: Survival of the Chicest

It’s not easy being Alexander Wang. Between responsibilities helming both the house of Balenciaga and his own eponymous line, the 30-year-old is currently shouldering more than most take on in a lifetime. No matter to him, it seems. He carries it all with natural grace and insoluble ease (and a big happy smile; every time I see him he’s smiling!).

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014: Petals, Princess Gowns…and Fishnets?

When you think of Monique Lhuillier, you think of show-stopping gowns, and in that respect, her Fall 2014 collection more than delivered. I love color for autumn, but unlike most designers, Monique typically offers color every season – and more often than that, bridal white. So in a way, the use of mostly grays and blacks this time around is even more intriguing.

Prabal Gurung Fall 2014 Collection

Prabal Gurung Fall 2014 Collection: A Shape in Drape

Flasher in leopard G-string aside (the man, also wearing a gold crown and red tube socks, artfully dodged the security using models as his shield), Prabal Gurung showed a highly wearable and softly pretty collection for the Fall 2014 season.

Rag & Bone Fall 2014 Collection: You’d Better Work

Calling all sexy outdoorswomen, hot bowling enthusiasts (and leggings enthusiasts, for that matter), vixen-cum-tomboys, and models with definitive senses of style: Rag & Bone’s Fall 2014 collection just hit the runway, and it was made just for you.

Jason Wu Fall 2014 Collection

Jason Wu Fall 2014 Collection: You Don’t Know Wu

Who you calling ingenue? Jason Wu is proving himself to be the new master of edgy sophistication. Opening with a dark, mature, introspectively and attractively moody tone right out of the gate, his Fall 2014 collection presents a supremely modern interpretation of the femme fatale.

Peter Som Fall 2014 Collection

Peter Som Fall 2014 Collection: Blurred Lines

Fashion Month is already off to a fantastically promising start! After the show for his Fall 2014 collection, Peter told me he had a certain girl in mind this season, a certain girl who has been inspiring designers for decades now: the inimitable Jane Birkin in her heyday of the seventies.

Florence Welch x Valentino

Florence Welch x Valentino: A Night at the Museum

Florence Welch stepped out for last night’s Museum of Natural History gala in NYC wearing a museum-worthy Valentino gown. The singer is often seen in designs from the Italian fashion house, and it’s no wonder why. Her luxe boho aesthetic fits in perfectly with Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, one inspired appropriately enough by opera.

Trend Alert: Jeweled Leg Wear

The Spring 2014 runways were coated with jewels – at least the leg wear was! The sparkle came in all shapes and sizes from Simone Rocha’s pearl-embellished knee-highs to Tom Ford’s full-body crystallization. Admittedly, these are looks that require a grand forum, so I’ve picked out some pieces that are less editorial and more everyday.
