New York Fashion Week 2010

Tuesday, 16 February 2010
I'm more into affordable and reusable (vintage) couture nowadays but I appreciate fashion trends.  After viewing almost 800 catwalk looks from today's walk down the runway for NYC's Fashion Week, it appears 2010's looks will be black and grey, punctuated by five-inch wedge boots.

First two photos by Reuters, third and following photos by Associated Press.



Derek Lam added a cowboy-esque hat to some of his outfits.  And several designers including Elie Tahari presented wraps with a built-in hood (which I love).  


Red, red lips also popped up on Donna Karan's catwalk and while the look is feminine, I have a hard time pulling it off in real life.

Fur and hats were all over Carolina Ferrera's collection.  Is fur taboo or not?  I don't mind vintage fur since it is "recylced" but this is clearly not old or faux.  Again...love the hats.



One of my favorite pieces on the runway today was by G-Star.  This blue jacket would look cute for work or brunch.  ADORE.

I am kind of loving vintage right now too. But who am I to turn down a peek at runway shows?

I agree with the blue jacket. I'm not sure about the fingerless gloves though... I suppose I'm just not that cool.

Even though I could never afford couture, I am partial to Elie Saab, but he only does Paris fashion week. My favorite was his Autumn/Winter 09-10 collection, all those white outfits were really pretty!

I liked the Marc Jacobs and Vera wang shows. Also liked Jason Wu, Victoria Beckham and Alexander Wang.

Will be waiting for 90% off sales.

Tina Lane - Agreed. Fingerless gloves, while useful for texting, are not that cute. Teri - I also love Elie Saab. CC - Marc Jacobs!!! 90% sales...if ONLY...
