spotlighting fur pieces, the oscar de la renta provides an expected level of class & sophistication for the fall season. never missing a beat, oscar de la renta presented an elegant color story collectively incorporating red, orange, purple & shades of green ever so gracefully. with the help of anja rubik, jac, sasha pivovarova, arlenis sosa, kasia struss, karen elson, kim noorda & vlada roslyakova; the fall collection was a strong showing for the fall. clientel of de la renta are sure to be pleased, as the collection provides incredibly beautiful additions to their existing wardrobe. oscar continually displays his ability to dress women in such a way; that, beautiful is used for lack of a better word. im completely amazed at his level of consistency in fashion & his dedication to refinement. he is & will always be a design legend. classic beauty is always at the forefront & its that dedication to a certain standard that has set the de la renta name apart from so many other designers in the fashion game. i love that his collections produce a mass amount of looks & pieces. while larger collections seem lacking in quality, look by look, de la renta soars above the competition. i applaud this collection as one of the best this season. oscar is an undisputed great, i throughly enjoyed this collection & my affinity for  beauty & the classics shines through this review. an incredible set, that no one can deny as great.

fall collections, new york: badgley mischka

always showcasing refined womenswear, badgley mischka presented their latest collection for the fall/winter  season in new york. showcasing a red, blue, black & neutral color palette the collection lacked cohesion along the same lines of monique lhuillier. piece by piece, look by look, the collection really presented singular looks without clearly translating a precise fashion story or general vision. that said, badgley mischka understand formal womenswear detailing like no other. a fair collection for a fall season; an impressive model casting including an opening with siri tollerød & a cameo from arlenis sosa. within the collection, runway look 18 is my favorite. basic bitches need not apply, only seeking the baddest of all bitches.
