NY Fashion Week Round Up - Fall 2016

This past weekend was brutally cold. I locked myself indoors to ensure that I didn't get any frostbite. Luckily, I did not get any cabin fever because I had New York Fashion Week to keep me preoccupied. The internet and Vogue Runway turned up the heat with gorgeous silhouettes and luscious colors/prints - getting everyone excited for Fall 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. You can see previous Fall posts here and here. I love a good round up and thought I'd share my favorites from this past week. Which designers caught your eye?

This Valentine's Day, Zac Posen gave America the greatest gift of all, he launched an e-commerce site for both the main line and ZAC Zac line. If his Fall 2016 runway collection is any indication of what a powerhouse he is, than consider my wallet to be completely empty come the Fall. Woodland romance was all the rage this season - a new riff on flora and fauna. He created looks suitable for both city and country life. A nice balance of silhouettes for every hour, from weekend brunches to evening affairs. I'll take one of each please. 


Designer Daniel Wingate sported a very sporty color palette for his Fall 2016 runway collection - primary red, blue, yellow and bright green. This season he sprinkled archival styles into the mix be it a slouchy tennis sweater or logo knit top. Similar to Posen, Wingate provided versatile pieces that can be worn to a number of different occasions - the brand refers to this as "desk-to-dinner." A handful of looks were monochromatic, one color requires a lot less thought and less hassle of mixing and matching. I want these top 6 looks in my Fall wardrobe immediately, don't you?

Sensory overload may be your first reaction when viewing Sonia Rykeil's sister line Sonia by Sonia Rykiel. However, you will be mastering these styling hacks of mashed-up layers of ruffles, rhinestones, stripes and leopard, come this Fall. It's all about mixing and matching soft and hard silhouettes. Julie de Libran and her team mixed chiffon blouses under sweatshirts or paired oversized satin bombers over leather mini skirts. These were the offbeat moods of the moment and reflect exactly how girls are dressing now. A new take on french whimsy has us all beaming with excitement.

Glitz and glamour was all the rage for Jenny Packham's Fall 2016 collection. Each outfit sent down the runway was destined for a night out on the town. Her signature jewel tones were left at the door, and in waltzed in clashing shades of jade, blush, lemon and poppy. Her best kept secret, was peaking from underneath each piece - Mary Jane flats. Comfortable shoes are still very important to most women, and Packham made the case very prominent. Beautiful satin and velvet flats were paired with everything from hand-beaded chiffon gowns to lace mini dresses.
