There were so many wonderful collections at NY Fashion Week that I’m ready for it to be spring again! I’ll have to go back and look at some Fall ’09 collections to get myself back in the present. With this post, I bring you my favorites from the Spring 2010 RTW collections. I loved practically everything, but have narrowed it down to just the few that I don’t think I can live without.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
At Marc by Marc Jacobs the runway was filled with a bevy of bright prints and wonderful color combinations with an ’80s punch. There was not a dull look to be found. Paired with nearly every bright look was a large, bright bow. It’s taking Blair Waldorf to the next level.
The looks at Proenza Schouler were very sporty-chic, but definitely more chic than sporty. The colors were rich and the tailoring beautiful. Some of the looks reminded me of something Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon would wear.
Beautiful but edgy is the best way to describe Naeem Khan’s Spring 2010 collection. Rich, bold colors and beautiful gowns made up the collection. There was such variety, it was hard to choose one photo. I’m not saying that is a bad thing, at all. There wasn’t too much variety to where you couldn’t see the general idea they were going for, but there was enough to keep things interesting. Did I mention all the looks were just beautiful?
Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte will never cease to amaze me. I mentioned Kim Gorden earlier when I talked about Proenza Schouler, and just before writing this, found out she’s a Rodarte fan. Awesome. The collection is very tattered, post-apocalyptic grunge. The fake tattoos lend a tribal feel and the dark makeup brings the whole thing together. They’ve collaborated with Nicholas Kirkwood again for the fabulously edgy, studded shoes. Rodarte continues to be one of my faves.
