Not afraid of mixing and matching bold colors with sweet prints and quirky layers, Chris Benz is truly our very own “Prints Charming.” Floral prints and afghan shawls with paillettes were vintage inspired, sweaters tied at the waist had a 90′s grunge feel to them, and the incorporation of lurex and denim felt fresh and new. Everything was personalized to Chris’ liking, from Chris Benz x The Cambridge Satchel Company bags to the jewelry by The Woods and from the headwear by Triviál New York to the backdrop from Anthropologie. It was perfection.
What better compliments an über-soft, frothy and feminine collection, at Honor, than multi-faceted crystals tucked into a nest of braids?! Yes, please!
It was all about a crisp pallet of black and white, with hints of pink, baby blue, and yellow, for Tibi this season. Amy Smilovic wonderfully incorporated washed denim, sheer mesh, leather, linen, and a single, trippy kaleidoscope print into a collection of mid-length dresses, cropped tops, blouses, skirts and slouchy suits. So chic, stylish and incredible wearable!
What do you get when you combine the wardrobes of Brooke Astor and Courtney Love? Unraveled elegance, according to Peter Som. Jeweled collars, floral printed shoes, retro bustiers, gold brocade pants, pastel silk sateen blouses, and watercolor board shorts (part of a new collaboration with Earnest Sewn) seemed to come across as more socialite than rock star. Regardless, it was a collection that was hip enough for any girl – updown or downtown.
Max and Lubov Azria had their spring showing yesterday morning and we honestly couldn’t think of a better collection to help kick off New York Fashion Week. Weightless, baroque printed and lingerie-like dresses juxtaposed beautifully with leather harnesses were inspired by the femme fatale muses and Helmut Newton’s black and white photography. I was especially smitten with the muted palettes with pops of coral . . . stunning.
We love a good collaboration, especially when two brands seems to meld together so harmoniously. Nicole Hanriot, of swimwear brand Beach Riot, has teamed up with Dallas Wand and Cydney Morris of Stone Cold Fox to create a sultry collection of Brazilian-inspired swimwear. Vintage palm prints and unique silhouettes in solid black and ivory make the mix-and-match possibilities endless.
