New York Fashion Week 2008.

February 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Here’s a quick New York Fashion Week Roundup, featuring my favorite designers and some noticeable trends:

Plaid was everywhere, from Yohji Yamamoto at Y-3 (seen below) to Americana conservator, Ralph Lauren. Proenza Schouler’s menswear-inspired ensembles favored monochromatic jewel tones and oversized bow ties, while Karen Walker stuck to her Bohemian Bourgeoisie guns and featured flower-print dresses, chunky-knit striped tights, and lots of colors reminiscent of the ’70s.

It looks like cobalt blue is sticking around for another season, as strains of the shade were noticeable in the majority of collections, including Matthew Williamson. The British designer’s collection was a mishmash of fluorescent hues; fur coats, vests, and scarves; flower-print patterns; and even evocative of traditional Tibetan patterns.
