Marc Jacobs S/S 2012

September 16th, 2011

As the last show on NY fashion week calendar, Marc Jacobs was given the arduous task of ending things with a bang. No easy feat, given the jaded editors filling the seats of the Armory, but Jacobs managed to move his audience by showing one of his best collections to date. Staged with theatricality worthy of a Broadway Fosse revival, the collection was a thoughtful melange of influences past, present and future. Everything from cashmere sweatshirts, Stephen Jones crafted lamé du-rags and silicone dresses appeared on Jacobs’ runway. In the hands of a lesser designer these quirky touches might seem haphazard, but Marc managed to create a cohesive look. Somewhere between futuristic flapper and urbane fashionista lies the Jacobs girl: this season there are no literal references, and as such each piece took on a life of its own. Clothing with personality is what Marc Jacobs is all about and spring’s offerings are filled with the charm, grace and wit we’ve come to expect from America’s current fashion king.

Preen S/S 2012

September 14th, 2011

Preen never fails to deliver, with each collection Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi expand the horizon of their brand with a fresh round of creativity. Spring finds the duo in a feminine mood, with soft colors and sculpted shapes combining to create a refined yet daring look. Pastels and prints are de rigueur on the runways this season, but no one is doing them like Preen. Their mix of pixels and hand drawn patterns is completely original and after a seemingly endless stream of NYFW shows that felt culled from the ghosts of collections past, it is nice to see designers who value uniqueness over familiarity.

For all the uniqueness there are a few historical allusions – Thornton and Bregazzi were inspired by The Bloomsbury set, an English group of intellectuals that included Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster. Rather than making their literary reference overt, they let the artistic spirit of that group’s dynamic influence things subtly. As we all know, Preen is a thinking woman’s fashion line, as pretty as things get on the runway it is the substance and skillful technique found in each piece that keeps fans coming back for more.

Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 2012

September 13th, 2011

Little Marc is looking very grown up this season. Though the kilted designer never fails to infuse his diffusion line with preppy touches, spring saw Jacobs in a minimalist mood. Save the segment featuring obligatory plaids and prints, the collection focused on strong colors and sharp cuts. Youthful doesn’t have to mean ostentatious and Jacobs’ finest moments were those that involved subtlety; a hint of orange peaking out from a slate macintosh, a ruffle accentuating the waist; simple touches crafted with a deft hand. The addition of these elements (and that killer price point) is what keeps Jacobs at the top of the heap.

Valentino Fall/Winter 2011

March 18th, 2011

The Valentino brand has always understood femininity, but under the direction of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, that means something very different than it did when the legendary Garavani was at the helm. Chiuri and Piccioli favor a light and almost demure look that skews girly with touches of lace and sheer detailing, but never looks immature. This season featured the gauzy dresses the duo have become known for, but expanded the airy look to include structured separates for day, floral printed gowns and a lineup of on trend python accessories. No matter the look, an ethereal feel ran through the entire showing; even the thick fur worn by Patricia Van Der Vliet and the laser cut leather skirt on Daphne Groeneveld seemed to float. When designers can take materials that dense and imbue them with lightness it shows not only talent, but the power of a compelling design signature.

Calvin Klein Fall/Winter 2011

February 18th, 2011

Francisco Costa has mastered the art of minimalism without repetition. Season after season he turns out thoughtful collections for Calvin Klein, subtly updating the brand’s vision of luxe austerity while providing his own take on modern elegance. Fall brings Costa into fresh territory with plays on texture and shape. The restrained color palette might not stray far from the neutral zone, but the array of finishes keeps things compelling. Bonded alpaca, cashmere, jersey, flannel, leather, lambskin; just an assortment of the materials Costa utilizes to great effect. It takes a moment to notice such an understated use of sumptuous textiles, but that is part of the magic. No matter how many hours of blood, sweat and tears were poured into the collection, it always looks effortless. Simplicity is the most difficult thing a designer can accomplish and it is the crux of true luxury. When Lara Stone glides down the runway in Costa’s metallic shift looking like she was born to wear it, you begin to understand the diligence and commitment to artistry that has come to define the Calvin brand.
