NYFW Fall '13: DKNY, DVF, Carolina Herrera & Reem Acra
This has got to be my favorite DKNY show as of yet. The DKNY show always makes me realize why I love New York city! Having taken place at their signature venue, Cedar Lake – DKNY started the vibe with a great RnB playlist, which maybe has to do something with their Opening Ceremony collaboration (which I’m very excited about!). The brand has it’s way with ‘Iconic Classics’, and with each collection that comes along, they stick to that part. A color palette that includes blues, reds, pinks, nude camel, black, white, and ‘every shade of grey’, the color had a vast variety of colors. Think neoprene sweaters, colored animal prints, oversized anoraks and varsity jackets.
This season Diane Von Furstenberg went with the theme, ‘Life is a Party’, and that is exactly what I feel whenever I check out a DVF collection or shop a DVF piece. The brand is always up for fluid effortless glamour, with their signature prints. However, this collection in particular referenced Studio 54, with a heavy dip in trends such as flowing dresses, V necklines and leopard prints. DVF is available at Boutique1 stores & Boutique1.com
Starting the day with a Carolina Herrera show at the Lincoln Center calls for some lady like glamour. So, today I wore a Giambattista baby pink dress with a metallic trim and made my way to the first show of the day. Herrera was inspired by a classic musical piece, which gave off a romanticism feel as well as her signature ladylike glamour which started from day with Karlie Kloss and moved on to night. For the fall season, Herrera accompanied most pieces with a fur trim. The Palette ranged from a wide assortment of colors such as plum, berry, blue, white, pink and of course, black and white.
Moving on to another show I was excited for which is headed by a Middle Eastern designer, Reem Acra. For the Fall ’13 season, Acra was heavily inspired by her recent trip to Japan. Fishnet stockings played a large role in the collection, in the most elegant way possible. Black and red were the dominant colors of the collection, which was transfused within a mix of femme fatale and Japanese inspired cocktail dresses and gowns.
