So Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week is over and because of an insanely busy week, I’m a little late on my recap but better late than never right? I just wanted to take a few minutes to share a few of the collections that really caught my eye along with highlights of neon green/yellow, the color that will apparently be the color of the Spring/Summer season this coming year.
High-waist pants made their presence known in the Alexander Wang collection. Perfect for a big city girl, there was lots of black yet all of that black was pleasantly offset by the use of plenty of bold color. Daring hues of lime green and cobalt blue were not only hard to miss but also hard to not fall in love with.
J. Mendel was all about the flowy sheer fabrics. His collection provided a mix of whimsical, high fashion, and plain ol’ pretty. There was quite a bit of neon green and white floating down the runway. I’m all on board. The looks were absolutely picture perfect for spring.
Diane Von Furstenberg
This latest collection from Diane Von Furstenburg was filled with plenty of delicate grays but like classic DVF, the collection was also replete with bold colors and florals. Oh, and honey the silhouettes... She gets me. She really, really gets me. Diane knows how to treat a lady. The Spring/Summer line gracefully accentuated the models lovely lady parts while several pieces made the statement that the crop top still in full effect. I loved the playful shorts and skirts but the sweet, sugary icing on the cake was a yellow, almost lime green dress that almost made my heart skip a beat.
Ohhhh Ma gosh, Badgley Mischka's runway looks absolutely stole my heart. This collection was my absolute favorite. I love when fashion embraces a woman’s femininity and fashion house Badgley Mischka has always been on the same page. The collection dazzled in wonderful elegance. I couldn't help but be drawn in as chic look after chic look strutted it’s way down the runway. Some of the dresses featured a tiered, tulle element, which I can’t say I was too fond of but overall, I would probably wear about 80% of the looks if given the opportunity. Hey Badgley… uhh call me.
