we've been glued to the runway shows for the next season and several of them have already come and gone. so far, we can't say we're stupefied by their genius...in fact, we've tossed superlatives out the window. yes, we've liked a few pieces here and there but as far as love goes, that's another matter entirely. it seems everyone's playing it safe and keeping it simple...but then again, it's too early to tell. so far, we've seen nicole miller play with color:
and temper it with gray in some cases:
striking in that 'thank heavens it's not neon' way. no offense, neon.
then we've seen yigal azrouel show two pieces that had us saying "HOTTT DAYUMMM":
...and then lots of layering - simple pieces underneath, eye-catchers up top:
still pretty sombre with the gray. it's starting to look like gray's going to be a spring '09 staple. we like what he did with white...he starts with a simple canvas and piles on the layers. duly noted.
and some floor length dresses that we're strangely drawn to for reasons we're not sure of just yet:
have you been following fashion week? any favorites so far? we'd love to swap opinions with you! we'll be back with more coverage soon!
