ManiaMania Solstice

The latest collection from designers Melanie Kamsler and Tamila Purvis, of ManiaMania, embraces spiritual and religious symbolism with wiccan and gothic-inspired shapes that include pyramids, crosses and moon symbols. I’d like to think that any of these gorgeous jewels will give me special powers . . .

Delpozo Fall 2014

For the past two seasons, we’ve been besotted with Delpozo. It’s the closest thing to couture we get here in New York. So you can imagine our anticipation was high this week, waiting to see what Josep Font had up his sleeve for his fall. Taking inspiration from the geometric, colorful work of Italian artist Duilio Barnabe and the futuristic society of the novel Logan’s Run, he presented a collection rich with textures and shapes. Sculpted coats, pleated gowns, mohair sweaters, and collared organza dresses stood apart with precise tailoring, unique silhouettes, and intricate beading and embroidery. Simply magical, as usual.

Coach Fall 2014

Coach‘s vibe just turned edgy at the hands of their newest creative director Stuart Vevers. At the label’s first show at New York Fashion Week, outerwear, that included Buffalo check blanket coats, firemen coats, leather jackets, oversized houndstooth coats, was the star. The accessories, like pebbled-leather cross-body bags, hybrid sneaker-boots, and suede shearling hiker boots, made for an amazing supporting cast. Utilitarian, classic and oh so chic. We love what we’re seeing!
