The sixth day of New York Fashion Week saw some of the stars’ favourite designers hitting the runway, including Rodarte, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Tibi and Herve Leger.
Marc Jacobs, who showed his Forties-chic mainline collection the day before yesterday, kept the spirit of the Seventies alive for autumn/winter with his range of midi-length skirts and A-line skirts in autumnal earth tones. His retro-inspired accessories were typically drool-worthy and included felt fedoras (check out Alexa Chung rocking a similar one in NYC) and animal-printed handbags.
Like DVF, the Mulleavy sisters at Rodarte were inspired by the American prairies. With A-listers including Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst seated in the front row, they paraded ankle-grazing coats and gowns decorated with wheat-field prints to elegant effect, and even included a sparkly sequinned skirt inspired by the Kansas based film, The Wizard of Oz.
Meanwhile, Max Azria updated the celebrity-favourite bandage dress for Herve Leger's autumn/winter line with a smattering of sequins and even lengthened the hemlines, turning them into more elegant maxi-dresses. We love!
Finally Tibi, whose frocks are constantly seen on Olivia Palermo and the cast of Gossip Girl, unveiled a perfectly-pretty line-up of gold and red party frocks. That solves next season’s Christmas party dress dilemma!
Today we can’t wait to check out Michael Kors new instalment of jet-set chic clothes, Milly by Michelle Smith (also a reoccurring favourite on Gossip Girl) and Elie Tahari.
