New York Fashion Week is officially under way, with collections from BCBG Max Azria, Red Valentino, Juicy Couture and J Brand helping to kick things off.
Red Valentino (above) was for the romantic and feminine dressers, and those who love a good fairytale. The collection was reportedly inspired by Hansel and Gretel, which is pretty evident from the embroidery found in the prints of the dresses. We particularly loved the tailoring in the jackets! Oh and we saw quite a few Beyonce-at-the-Superbowl style knee high socks too. Trend alert!
There wasn’t a single flannel/velour tracksuit in sight at Juicy Couture, and instead we saw an entirely wearable collection fit for that cool, casual, and care-free girl about town.
J Brand was a bit dull in terms of colour palette as we mainly saw blacks, greys and a hint of white, but it came alive in terms of texture, styling and variety. We love a good statement belt, and this collection gave us plenty.
A great way to kick off New York Fashion Week and indeed the autumn/winter 2013 season.
