Review: New York Fashion Week SS13Sunday, 9 September 2012
Being the darling of New York, Alexander Wang has a lot to live up to every season. His SS13 collection did not disappoint - although with many of his collections my eyes are drawn to the shoes. I need to get myself a pair of these sandals, that band at the top of the leg adds a little something extra. I expect to see many a knock of next Spring/Summer. He always does leather with the upmost craftsmanship - I loved this cut out dress.
Although not usually a collection I would go out of my way to look through this season Herve Leger by Max Azria really displayed why they a firm red carpet favourite. The last blue dress has to be my pick of the whole collection - the intricate pattern and leather detail made it a little something more than just a dress. I think any woman could find a dress to suit her from this collection - now if I just had a spare grand lying around.
It is always nice to see a truly wearable collection - so often designers make pieces which are only really for the catwalk or the extremely brave. Rebecca Taylor's denim waistcoats and embellished dresses would be a perfect outfit for Spring/Summer - with an almost whimsical vibe I expect this collection will be a firm favourite among many bloggers. It seems the bejewelled collar isn't going anywhere for now.
