NYFW Roundup Pt. 5

Leanne Marshall

Beautiful! Project Runway season 5 winner shows her newest collection. Love the details and “intellectual” approach that she was recognized for. Color palate is really pretty with a nice pop-art edge to it. I hate the styling tho, that hair is driving me insane.


Like many, I’ve been following DKNY’s PR girl on twitter (really entertaining btw) so I’ve been reading about all the franticness going on behind the scenes. Love the patterns, very cute preppy styles.

Diane Von Furstenberg

I usually love DVF’s collections, but the standouts in this one come off a little cheap-looking no?

Herve Leger

The word of the day is “bandages”! Super pretty, impeccably made, interesting dresses. No separates in this collection, but I don’t think it needs it.

Project Runway Season 6 winner shows her collection

Okay. First, I hate bird feathers in clothing. Especially when it looks like a walking taxidermy’d animal. That being said, I don’t like this collection at all. The whole thing is SO costume-y – if there’s an eskimo princess archetype she definitely found it.  There are some interesting shapes going on with her signature heavy knits – but as a whole I find it rather offensive. Sorry bitch!

3.1 Phillip Lim

Phillip Lim is always about the jackets for me, definitely some stand-out pieces here. How hot are the shoes? Weird urban bondage theme going on with the gloves too. Hearts.

Peter Som

First of all, is Tao Okamoto walking every fucking show??

Second, I think this is one of my favorite collections so far. The textures and colors really pop and are just gorgeous.


Doo-ri Chung presents her next collection filled with some strong looks, but overall didn’t really sing like a collection should.


Everyone’s losing their shit over this collection! Cute wrap dresses, cable-knits, and I die for the big braided scarves. I have such a huge scarf fetish.

Is that menswear I see?

Yigal Azrouel

His clothing has a really casual hot-ness that I love. I want all the Jackets!

Duckie Brown

I don’t know if I distracted by the hot models, but I always love Duckie Brown’s clothes. The jackets are all so fun, with plaid being used in a non-punk way, very structured and masculine. Love!

Rag & Bone

I loooooooooooove this collection! Really strong looking clothes, interesting layers, everything I heart ❤

Past Project Runway edition!

Christian Siriano

Overall very nice IMO – gentle color story, lots of separates, and of course lots of ruffles. The first look is pretty hot.

Daniel Vosovic

I always love his work – lots of softly structured looks with an air of modern sophistication. Interesting note: apparently it was hard to find all the Asian models used in this presentation.
