It can be overwhelming to sift through the looks, so weâ€™ve created a list of our favorites(and their runners up) from each day of New York Fashion Week’s Spring ’13 shows.
The master at short suits and structured jackets, this season was no different. Rasta-prints were followed by hot pink dresses that are suited for the Barbie girl in everyÂ one of us, Jenni Kayne kicked off the week flawlessly.
The jock-hit-the-runway vibe resonates well with all the tomboys out thereÂ (shoutout!). The line became nostalgic for us with the athletic cuts, and confirmedÂ that now is, in fact, the time to channel our inner Sporty Spice. Letâ€™s not forget theÂ neon PVC jackets.
Runners Up |Â Suno,Â Rag & Bone
Cutouts, leathers, neutrals and the pseudo-boot sandal that has been aching to beÂ designed mark the highlights of Wangâ€™s show, and it really should go without sayingÂ that the finale left us glowing. Can we also talk about A$AP Rocky in the front row?Â Toast to the Gods.
Runners Up | Altuzarra,Â Prabal Gurung
Tantalizing textures owned this show. The cropped trapeze trench was positivelyÂ sixties, and the A/W color palette was an interesting juxtaposition with the S/SÂ silhouettes. This collection offers multiple super easy transitional pieces.
Runners Up | Timo Weiland,Â Thakoon
3.1 Phillip Lim
Our 80s rocker & 90s grunge girl hearts couldnâ€™t handle this show. FloralsÂ channeling acid washes tailored to fit a perfectly cropped motorcycle silhouetteÂ layered with sheer plaid-paneled prints in neutrals. The Man Repeller said itÂ best, â€œthese ideas are always precisely in tune with the vibe of fashion week atÂ largeâ€“essentially just cut up, reconfigured and ultimately tailored to suit his eye
Runners Up | Chris Benz, Marc Jacobs
The Mulleavy ladies did it again with crystal jewels that offset the masculinity ofÂ the leather fringe and grommet leggings perfectly. If you have ever wondered whatÂ Cinderella would wear on a motorcycle, itâ€™s Rodarteâ€™s S/S 13 collection. This line isÂ fit for the hipster princess in all of us.
Runners Up | J. Crew,Â ICB
Leathers, cutouts, neons and prints ruled this line, per usual. We loved the printsÂ created through the addition of grommets, because, letâ€™s be honest, studs are soÂ 2009.
Runners Up | Jeremy Scott,Â Elizabeth & James
Flower Power to the max, and we really cannot deny a crazy, colorful batch of printsÂ thrown together. The structured, collarbone-baring jackets over textured racer backÂ tanks was intriguing to say the least.
Runners Up |Â Cynthia Rowley,Â Calvin Klein CollectionÂ
