Alexander Wang does what he does best: sporty sexiness. After last season's play on shapes and proportions, he's returned to the form. This collection is luxe snearkerhead. The sleek grey knits, and those amazing black pants are the perfect foundations for the tech-y textures and pops of neon.
Prabal Gurung's runway was full of beautiful pieces, but it was these moody, deconstructed, collage knits that caught my eye. The cropped racer back gowns were the epitome of ease and drama. I mean, can we talk about that smoke monster skirt?! It's fantastic.
Dion Lee does sexy boss bitch really well.
I don't think I could pull of the hats, but I could live in Tibi's collection next Spring. This was all wearable, classic ease.
Do we expect anything else from Altuzarra? He continues to make a strong case for pencil skirts with thigh-high slits being the only skirts that should ever exist. And I don't know that gingham has been this sexy since Mary Anne. The leather lattice work was seen in a few looks, including a vest and a dress; it somehow looks tough and substantial, and yet still delicate and precarious enough that all it would take is a gentle tug at the string for it to fall to the floor. The closing gowns - Altuzarra's "deflated 18th century dresses" - were gorgeous. Marie Antoinette emerging from the water, all sagging opulence.
Jaipei Li was part of the Parsons MFA show. I love the oversized neoprene, particularly the knotted piece in the third look.
Amelie Bahisen was also a part of the Parsons MFA show. The effect of the swirls of saturated colors tempered by these transparent overlays is a powerful one. The tubing necklaces are a perfect touch.
