Collections from NY

I've been slowly sorting through the American collections. It's quite an undertaking as there are many you must look (that I personally like and others I don't care for) at and many that I want to look at. I picked a few stand outs that I like and some reoccurring trends I saw. I didn't get to everyone, but I found some lovely and inspiring things in the collections.

Derek Lam
Love his use of leather. I'm not typically a leather girl, but I would wear this in a heartbeat.

I love a cool wedge masquerading as a boot.

3.1 Phillip Lim
This just epitomizes the brand's style: cool and confident...

Periwinkle. I love this color, especially with a sparkly gold top beneath it.

A luxurious leather jacket...

I love this outfit for someone my age, but the pieces separately could work for anyone.

Cool color scheme and those socks are so cool.

Really sweet collection this time. They went from ripped tights to flowery ones!

Peter Som
I'm seeing the grunge movement possibly making a return. It looks good so far...

Ralph Lauren
More grunge at RL... Unexpected, but I would like more than anything to rock an evening gown with a comfy long-sleeve  under...

Zac Posen
I always love what Zac does. Everything is mini and fun! I loved these really sheer orange-y tights. 

Erin Featherston
More orange. I feel like most people aren't willing to wear orange, but I feel like this dress makes it exciting (especially with tan footwear).

All white? Yeah! This jacket would look good with so many things.

This dress screams EDITORIAL! I feel like we'll be seeing a lot of this dress in the future...
That's a color I'd love to see more of!

Calvin Klein
I am no minimalist. I adore CK, but I have too much baggage for minimalism. I loved these shoes. I couldn't take my eyes off of the models' feet.

L'wren Scott
L'wren, a red-carpet favorite. She wrapped up some trends for next season in this ensemble: leather and capes. I love this cape. It's feminine and tough, all at once.

Vera Wang
Who wouldn't want to be a Vera Wang girl? Clad in her great evening wear (dresses, pants, and this gorgeous blazer) and her jewelry!

Vera's got so many strengths as a designer, but her jewelry is just killer!

J. Mendel
Couldn't find a close up of the boots... They look amazing. That dress and muff would work for a night out in NYC in a pinch...

This was a hard post to compile, but so fun to look through the collection with purpose! Looking forward to Paris. I'll probably skip much of Milan except for the big names.

Hope you found something you liked, and if not I hope you share something you do love....
