Thom Browne

September 10, 2013

As usual, Thom Browne pushed the boundaries of ready-to-wear with his surrealist Spring/Summer collection.

Proenza Schouler

February 17, 2012

Proenza Schouler, always a NYFW highlight, revamped downtown style by combining traditional Eastern (think Samurai) and futuristic elements. The presentation began with oversized leather jackets and ended with the sort of pretty dresses that have won Proenza such a loyal following.

Michael Kors

February 16, 2012

Michael Kors deftly combines houndstooth with metallics, with feathers and furs in abundance. It will make for quite a hunt!

Thom Browne

February 14, 2012

Ever one to march to the beat of his own drum, Thom Browne’s models began the show in wooden coffins. What emerged, however, was a collection of cocoon silhouettes, strong shoulders, full skirts, tartan and harlequin prints, and button-front black dresses.

Theyskens’ Theory

February 14, 2012

Sheer tops and skirts, leather, and pleated trousers dominated Theyskens’ collection for Theory. The palette was strictly black, grey and navy-glammed up with a little bit of ochre and fool’s gold sparkle. Looks like we can keep our ankle-length sheer skirts in rotation for another season.

3.1 Phillip Lim

February 14, 2012

Phillip Lim stuck to what he knows best with monochrome blazers, unfussy and creased trousers. There were no big surprise pieces, but as we’ve come to rely on Lim’s minimalist-chic to repopulate our workwear each season, we’re glad he hasn’t changed his signature style.


February 13, 2012

Lacoste looked to the ski slopes for their F/W 2012 collection, showing red leggings, zip-front dresses and zip-sleeves that created capes when undone. For the show’s close, Lacoste moved to apres-ski (circa the 1930s) with lattice skirt-suits and matching hats.

Tommy Hilfiger

February 13, 2012

Tommy Hilfiger takes his womenswear in the same direction as his mens show with military-inspired coats and leather jackets. Bridle-printed skirts and dresses, and tartan riding hats add an equestrian element.

Cushnie et Ochs

February 13, 2012

With The Skin I Live In as its inspiration, Cushnie et Ochs did body-con up and down the runway. Even the nude pumps came with zippers.

Fashion Week Front Row: Moncler

February 13, 2012

The latest spectacle by Moncler included male-model ice skating. What a life!

Patrik Ervell

February 13, 2012

With flawless casting, Patrik Ervell offered his second collection of women’s, on top of his elevated prep for men. This one saw luxurious quilted leather, a noirish silhouette.

Fashion Week Front Row: Y3

February 13, 2012

We are in the front row at Y-3, delivering a psychedelic image of fall.

Siki Im

February 13, 2012

Siki Im was inspired to protest bullying, by way of sexy, ripped, but nonetheless alternative male icons. The silhouettes were bulky, but tailored.

Prabal Gurung

February 12, 2012

Prabal Gurung’s F/W collection had three distinct phases—heavy black fur coats and belted neoprene LBDs turned into a wave of blue dresses and suits with swirling Georgia O’Keeffe prints only to be swept away by sheer, white ruffled sleeves and gold lamé gowns.

Tommy Hilfiger Mens

February 11, 2012

The new Tommy is trim and sleek. Peacoats, military inspirations, motorcycle and luxe varsity jackets, the works. Just don’t call it prep.


February 11, 2012

Parkchoonmoo did beautiful cocoons for fall. Thie show was in large part a vision in white, with nude accents and fur, to elaborate on the skin analogies.

Rag & Bone

February 11, 2012

Rag & Bone showed a very grown-up collection, with Victorian paisley embroidery and fur collars. There was no shortage of luxurious, dessicated elegance.

BCBG MaxAzria

February 9, 2012

BCBG MaxAzria did sporty Bauhaus, with belted color-blocked belted trenches and jersey trousers. They didn’t forget Bauhaus luxury, either, with leather and fur sleeves.

Richard Chai

February 9, 2012

This season Richard Chai was inspired by Bruce Davidson’s subway photography. The results were durable fabrics, protective outerwear, cropped pants and an oversized Filson duffel.

Rachel Comey

February 9, 2012
