New York Fashion Week has Begun

Off to difficult start with the shocking, tragic death of one of its own dearly beloved, Alexander McQueen, record snow, ice and flight cancellations, the Show did, indeed go on. Marcio Madeira Photos

With draping, layers and muted fall colors, the design duo put together a collection that, as Lubov Azria says, “is for the customer” this season. Many of the pieces can start out in warmer fall months and layer as the weather cools. How practical. I would like to have seen some of the color they are known for sprinkled here and there, and I am not a fan of white stockings.

If this designer was known for practicality then he just took that term one step further. An entire wardrobe could easily be constructed from this 62 piece collection. There is everything there from work and play to cocktails and furs. The breadth of this collection is astounding. My particular gush is his use of over the knee runched boots. Textures (feathers, tulle, leather, silk moires, velvets, wools, chiffons, sequins), colors (ice pinks, ivory, caramels, yellows, brushed nickels, chocolates), and styles of every description together with the location of his glossy salon style show venue made this an excellent opener.
