NYFW: FW2011

My top ten favourite collections from New York fashion week. I chose six stand out looks from each collection as shown under the cut below.

Jason Wu

A nice surprise! The details are subtle and feminine which makes the clothes very wearable and eye catching.

Jill Stuart

My unconditional love for owls made this an instant hit. The colours are perfect for autumn and the prints are modern and interesting. I also love the bold block colour dresses towards the end of the collection.

Marchesa

I know it’s more or less the same thing every season but it was too beautiful not to post. I love the symmetry around the necklines and the cut out shapes.

Marc Jacobs

I often find his collections to be overrated, but I really enjoyed this one! It was mostly a dotty affair with black polka dots of various sizes on bold blocks of colour. I’ve always loved polka dots so it automatically was a winner from that point of view. More interesting though, was his use of lace and floral shape patterns.

Oscar de la Renta

I wouldn’t wear much of it personally, but for a slightly older woman I think it would be a perfect fit.

Preen

This collection really caught my eye due to the amazing prints, colours and shapes! I think this collection is one of the more successful using geometrical shapes.

Rag & Bone

So effortless and hip as usual. I get a punk vibe from the more colourful pieces with reds, blue, black, block shapes and plaid.

Ralph Lauren

I’m posting this because it perfectly conveys the brand. It’s nothing new or exciting but it is elegant and glamourous.

Rodarte

I’m glad the Mulleavy sisters are trying new things. If I’m honest I was getting bored of the delicate knits and studded shoes they were creating a few seasons back. This collection still keeps some of the Rodarte characteristics (wrapping and piecing of the material) with the geometric shapes that were present in their spring/summer collection, but the patterns and coats are new additions. The collection has a countryside/farming theme which works well with the 3/4 length skirts and gathered coats/blazers.

Threeasfour

This collection reminds me of spirographs, musical instruments, DNA, muscles and coral which is not a bad thing at all.

    I think most everything looks ugly but I do like the bottom right dress from Oscar de la Renta.
