Drawing inspiration from Senegalese textiles, Finnish Marikmekko prints, and Japanese kimonos, Diane von Furstenburg was all about conveying exuberance, optimism, and new beginnings in her Spring collection. The color combinations were beyond uplifting and fresh: bright pastels mixed with muted grays and rusts; high octane reds, blues and greens mixed with aubergine and stark whites. It’s no wonder the show ended with Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good” . . .

Leave it to Olivier Theyskens, the master of downtown casual chic, to create a new denim silhouette for Spring: faded high waisted jeans with the waistbands dropping below the hips and slouchy the rest of the way down! Pair it with a belt, a t shirt, and a pair of heels – and you’ll be full of swagger next season. Perfection!

“Andy Warhol’s superstars go to Coney Island, with a nod to candy kids” is how the brilliant Chris Benz described his Spring Collection. He so masterfully mixed slouchy pants, embellished blazers and symmetrical skirts with trippy floral and geometric prints, pops of neon, and sneakers by Alejandro Ingelmo. And the super teased hair and orange-red lips topped it all off. LOVE!!
