fall collections, new york: the row

as one of the strongest design labels to surface on the american fashion scene, the row is a collection of incredibly large influence & the olsen’s have more than exceeded any expectation anyone has had for their design ventures of the past five years. decked in lavish furs & beautiful animal print, a combined presentation of stunning simplicity is well balanced with the collections use of exquisite & exotic design concepts. with a bit of influence from classic formal wear & 90’s trend, the row presents a beautiful collection this fall. a wide range of looks was presented in the form of multi-colored furs as clean lined dress designer were accented with lace & leather. from blazers with leather sleeves to the sky blue fur, the models walked the runway were made up with a dark lip that allowed the chic volume to be cranked to two more notches. i love see what the olsen’s will create next; they’ve remained in privacy & have really mastered the art of style & how to introduce & reinvent beautiful pieces with their own interesting twist. i love the animalistic concepts that are subtly introduced this season.

spring collections: y-3, new york

as an almost violent oppostion of spring trends on the runway, Y-3 produced devastatingly dark designs this season in new york. matched with a dark lip with cameos of red for contrast, the collection seems to weigh on new york fashion week just as heavy as the rain clouds that have sprayed the city these past few days. i can always garner appreciation for rebellion & surely find appreciation in all things dark. but here, considering the fashion blackout projected by the fashion industry for FW10; i dont see any form of variation or creative concepts. it’s almost as if this was intended for FW10 & not SS1. that said, the Y-3 brand has currently adapted darker aesthetics to their advertising campaigns through video & photography. a commend the strong direction & clear concept translation, love the modern cuts & edgy designs. overall, it still represents modern day fashion.
