A safe Spring with a lemon finish. The Lacoste collection was classic sports wear at it's best. Lacoste has mastered the art of wearable sportswear for the masses. We enjoyed the black and white and shades of blue. The yellow sunburst was a spectacular finale. We love Lacoste Spring/Summer 2010.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We have to say that Julie Haus Spring 2010 definitely has great potential. The Circus there was quite a variety in fabrics and designs, and we assume that the “shoes” were to bring attention to the clothing, because it definitely turned our eyes upward! It was a tumultuous sea of emotions.
We are big fans of lace—truly we are. HOWEVER, the “Burlesque-inspired” came off as 80’s Madonna-inspired. This is the ultimate proof that history is repeating itself— Fashion Week is no exception. The Burlesque is being ruminated entirely too much to not have evolved into something great. We encourage innovation.
On the other hand, we love the idea of a Dark Spring. The Wheeler Trouser really complemented the tank. The jumpers and rompers caught our attention. In this portion, there was so much variety that it definitely brought a “wow” factor. When we saw the Hannah Romper, we couldn’t help but smile. It was something different. Everything thereafter had something to it. Within the Charlie Chaplin “Circus” spectrum, there was variety.
We left Julie Haus wanting more, and not because we didn’t get enough; we wanted more because we couldn’t get enough of what we saw. nyfw

The Rebecca Taylor girl for spring explores urban femininity. She works, lives and plays in the city. Towering printed sandals and architectural structured stretch dresses are softened with femme corset-inspired bustiers and flippy, fun, pull on printed skirts. Spring 2010 encompasses playful use of colors, prints and textures. The palette is intense with shades of big apple reds, shocking pinks, electric blues, and retro jades contrasted with desert tans and soft, peachy oranges. Sharper than seasons past, strong shoulders and a new, waisted silhouette enhance the look our girl wantonly craves. NYFW

I'm really excited about the Tracy Reese show as I am every #nyfw. She really knows how to make a woman look beautiful. The collection is a study of juxtapositions: the contrast between architectural and relaxed silhouettes, hard and soft, sheer and opaque. I'm sure it will be yet another fabulous collection.
