NYFW: Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-to-Wear (Day 2)

The Yigal Azrouel was a breath of spring with effortless pieces that were way more complex than they initially appeared. Stand out pieces included the printed double-breast cape dress, leather moto jacket with chiffon sleeves embroidered with ferns, and the lace top paired with white trousers.

The Idan Cohen collection boasted beautiful formalwear with a mermaid spin. The nod to the scallop shell seen throughout the runway was intricate and original and the bodice details of each piece are dying to shine on the red carpet.

The Katie Gallagher “Chinatown” collection might conjure up images of crane printed satin and mandarin collars, but instead she focused on how Chinatown makes her “feel”. The collection itself boasted a lot of black and white wearable pieces with perfectly placed pops of red.

Custo Barcelona always puts up a solid show, and the style always lends itself better to Spring/Summer. The intricate pieces of the collection showed an attention-to-detail that commands some serious respect.

If I could use one word to describe the Sally LaPointe runway, it would be… luxe! The richness of the fabrics, the perfect slouch of the knits, and the pops of pony hair don’t exactly feel like “Spring” but it definitely reminds us of those final cool nights before the heat sets in.

Oh Betsey, how I love thee! I always look forward to what Betsey Johnson brings to Fashion week… Her over-the-top runway feels more like a party than a fashion show. While her Spring/Summer runway was nothing short of the what you would expect, she also took the time to pay some serious respect. The overall runway was an ode to her 50 years in the fashion industry, starting with the current tutu trend and working her way backwards with a nod to 90s grunge, 80s pinstripes, and the swingin’ 60s. The last looks of the showed what the 50s meant to her: inspired by dance costumes she wore as a child. Why her dance costumes? Because before her show she arranged for a car to pick up her 94-year old dance teacher, Ann Pimm– the woman who brought her to New York. The woman she dedicated her show to… It felt like her runway was saying, “Look at all I’ve been able to do because of you.” Betsey walked out at the end with roses for Pimm and donned in an American Flag shirt she designed in 2001 after 9/11. Because her show fell on on 9/11 this year, she said she was going to “wear it for the firemen.” What a stand-up gal!

Giulietta launched a runway that was equal parts sporty and futuristic. Key pieces included the bandaged jumpsuit with printed bottoms, the red banded dress with flutter sleeves, and the green and black dress with blouson sleeves.

Pamela Roland continued to do what she does best: beautiful formal dresses with perfectly wearable pieces weaved throughout. The bright neons made an exceptional punch.

Oh the Givenchy! There is always a sense of solemness at the Givenchy runway– feels kind of like sitting in a beautiful church… You just feel so struck with awe you can’t help but pay respect. The start of the collection was reminiscent of vintage lingerie ads which evolved into exquisite formalwear paired with amazing bejeweled “face wear”. Stunning!

Nicole Miller found inspiration from the streets of New York and interpreted (quite literally sometimes) on the runway.

The Zimmerman runway looked exquisite with detailing reminiscent of the 1800s… but with a touch of naughty.

The Ulla Johnson runway was beautifully bohemian with pieces that looked like art, but still seemed easy to wear.
