NY Fashion Week Round Up - Spring 2016

One of the best birthday presents is the gift of New York Fashion Week and the new runway collections from all my favorite designers. The internet and have been all a buzz with gorgeous silhouettes and prints - getting everyone excited for Spring 2016. Each season, I always try to capture the specific collections that really catch my eye and the collections that stand out among the crowd with different and innovative ideas. I love a good round up and thought I'd share my favorites from this past week. Which designers caught your eye?


"It all stemmed from the idea of colorful hot air balloons over the Savannah." said Whitney Pozgay during her Spring 2016 presentation. The end result was incredibly playful and a collection full of pieces that every girl is dying to get her hands on (myself included). There was something for everyone, whether in voluminous shapes and/or African inspired prints, hand-painted stripes or raffia-fringed skirts.

Step aside J.Crew there is a new powerhouse brand in town and it goes by the name of Banana Republic. With a new creative director in play, the effervescent Marissa Webb, the brand has an amazing new direction with revamped patterns and textures for both womenswear and menswear. This season, Webb packed a powerful punch with her elective palette of fun patterns and separates. For a brand that was very dated, it suddenly has become chic and cool again.

Frame Denim was surprisingly anything but denim this Spring season, in fact, there weren't many bottoms at all. Cofounder Jens Grede said, "The new pant is no pant. Or is it the Emperor's New Pants?" The collection aesthetic was Americana meets the 70s French riviera. New washes, new cuts, new styles of denim infused with shirts, trousers in suede and leather and even swimwear. Maybe the emperor has a few clothes in his closet after all.

This season my eyes were on Jil Sander Navy. References to Henri Matisse's bright colors and patterns had me wanting every piece and adding it to my Spring wardrobe. The label kicked up the cool factor to all of its basic silhouettes by enhancing skirts and shirts with peplums and sleeves with ruffles and puffs.
