NYFW Day 5, Part 1.

Blogging about NYFW has become a little bit more difficult to do since I've been hopping around from desktop to laptop to other laptop etc, due to this. Tragic, I know. I'm not completely done with the shows from yesterday but I wanted to publish the first few I have done already. But before I get to that, I must give Helmut Lang the attention Michael and Nicole Colovos deserve. I cannot believe I forgot to mention them in my weekend recap seeing as Helmut is one of my favorite Ready to Wear designers, if not my favorite one. The collection was as chic and edgy as ever with of course, lots o'maroon. Peak the collection for yourself here. Pretty cool stuff, huh? I want it all. And now that that's out of the way, below is part one of my recap of Monday's shows, beginning with Preen.
Since I started off my street style post from Sunday with some awesome tuxedo pants, I found it appropriate to start off with Preen, whose collection also featured a variety of really cool tuxedo pants - color blocked and all. I also love the use of navy and black together (duh) and some more good ol' peplum. Gosh, that sounded really repetitive.
Next is Carolina Herrera who showed the fashion world that despite how long she's been in the game, she's still got it. She was right on trend with a furry armed sweater, a maxi skirt that could be palazzo pants, and that darling little sequins and sheer dress.
The last collection to be featured in this recap is The Row. That navy and black textured suit is to die for. Notice how the pants are paneled and the back is some sort of silky satin.. so dope. And the outfit on the right, is it a surprise that I'm obsessed with it? I love balloon sleeves and the Olsens -- you guys are the bomb dot com.
So sorry to have to cut this short, responsibility is calling (ugh), but check back soon for more. Oh, and happy Valentine's day! I love you guys.
