NYFW SS 14 Recap II

Fashion Week really waits for no one. I am already two days behind, so basically this is old news, but I know you're just dying to know what I thought about the second day of shows. Right? Roooiight. So here it is, well the first five shows anyway. There is still A LOT more to come.


There was a lot of metallic silver at Zimmerman this season, and I must say, I'm not the biggest fan of it. I like the top and skirt combo because of it's shape and the fluidity, but that's about it in that department. I absolutely loved the bathing suits. I would totally wear the one pictured above even though everyone would think I'm a freak and repeatedly tell me "I would" while I answer "I did." Zimmerman also showcased a lot of crop tops which I looOoOoOovEe. How awesome is the wrap around and tie detail? The back must look so sick. Jumpsuits seem to be a big thing on the runways so far, which is great since I am a huge advocate for them, and more slinky silhouettes for the win.

If you haven't noticed yet, I have been, and still am, really into high-waisted bikinis and this one from Peter Som is so cute. I don't think I'll ever be over boxy silhouettes like the one this vest is pulling off. And the same goes for cut-outs. And slits! And sheer! Wooop wooop!


I had no idea who Lyn Devon was when I first clicked to view the collection, but I am so glad I did. The entire collection is really clean-cut and sophisticated. Even though her designs are more on the mature side, their crispiness is refreshing -- kind of like the air in Paris. Thirty to fifty year old me needs the above looks to be waiting for me in my closet. That's appropriate, right?

I don't know if I am particularly keen on Jason Wu's collection because I just spent a whole afternoon trying on his clothes, or because it really just rocks, but I'm going to go with both. I love that he paired a jacket and sweater with such sexy sequins skirts. I'm a huge fan of this sort of juxtapositioning. I love how complete this collection is with very feminine, lingerie-inspired dresses and masculine suiting.

Last collection for today's recap is Rebecca Minkoff's. I don't know how else to describe it but as Frida Kahlo taking on the sports trend. You see what I'm saying? I'm glad that designer's are digging further into sporty silhouettes. Check back for more soon!
