SPRING 2010 SEEMS TO BE rushing in, with all the fanfare and excitement surrounding the New York Fashion Week’s expositions.  There were so many stories, so many different fashion statements, it was hard to ferret out individual trends and directives. But one thing was sure:  This was an assertive Spring showing, with major design expressions enlivening the runways and giving a boost to the entire fashion industry.

 

Caroline Herrera offered a lovely horizontally striped suit, very au naturel, with satiny grey and shimmery gold playing against each other.  A big bow graced the suits neckline, in a somewhat Asian effect.  The model carried a same-colored little clutch bag

 

THE CHARM OF A LITTLE CLUTCH BAG IS UNBEATABLE.  HERE ARE SOME TO CONSIDER:

 

 

 

  • Evening clutch bag in faux patent leather goes from office to dinner with ease!  Choice of colors.

 

 

Donna Karan worked with lots of nature colors and moody neutrals, lots of grays and whites, and gossamer fabrics that clung to the body while showing it off.  Not everything worked, however, despite the thunderous applause from fashion editors.  Her skinny washed linen dress exemplified the designer’s lived-in move, and frankly looked just that.  Maybe Salvation Army lived-in. 

   –Karan likes jewelry and used it well.  A big white plastic chain bracelet looked stunning with a long white evening dress.  A little choker filled in a bare neckline. 

 

                                                     Disc Choker

 

COLOR POPPED AT Zac Posen, where models walked down the runway showing off plenty of leg and lots of hues and prints.  One long dress in soft rose featured a bejeweled floral print top to bottom.  A short little swing-y dress in two-tone blue was sweet, if a bit saccharin.  A large blue disc choker gave it pizzazz.

 

J. Mendel is a designer who likes shine, plenty of structured and well-cut satin gowns and dresses in soft ivory, yellow and rose.  With them he paired cute little clutch bags and large statement necklaces, like one flashy, medium length necklace of shiny silver disc clusters. Very dramatic. 

 

There were lots of bows from Tuleh at the neckline and at the waist of very sweet dresses and shorts. A handsome minimalist look from Rachel Roy featured a wrap around grey skirt with long sleeved grey knit top.  Simple, stunning. 

 

BIG GLASSES HIT THE RUNWAYS again, this time from Rebecca Taylor. They were more than big, actually.  They were super black, as well.  Carmen Marc Valvo used Grecian draping, satiny fabrics, and tight, body skimming lines to emphasize a rich, feminine evening dress done in very light golden tan.  He accessorized it with a surprise:  A single gold bangle bracelet. Classic.

 

                                                   Two-Tone Blue

 

BLUE WAS A DOMINANT statement at Thakoon – two-tone blue, to be exact – revving up a little short-skirted dress with blue and pink apron.  More blue was seen at Zero + Maria Cornejo.  Here, the designers put forth a three piece outfit of unusual style:  A navy blue halter top, a medium blue print skirt with navy diagonal, and a long, swingy over-jacket of navy blue. 

 

BLUE WAS THE FALL COLOR OF THE YEAR AT PANTONE; IT ALSO LED THE COLOR WHEEL IN NEW YORK FOR SPRING.  HERE, SOME BLUE ITEMS TO ENJOY:

 

 

 

 

  • Lapis heart pendant in bright blue with darker spotting.  Must see!

 

 

Wrapping up the expositions were a number of clothing/accessory designs worthy of noting: 

    — From Vivienne Tam, a long blue diaphanous gown with brown macramé belt. 

    — From Toni Maticevski, a skirt and tank top combination with wild frou-frou floral decoration, accessorized with below-the-waist-length skinny black chains.

    –From Victoria Bartlett, more diaphanous material, this in a tan dress with spaghetti straps, accessorized by a squared-off white and orange bangle bunch.

    –From Rosa Cha, a two piece polka dot bathing suit, shown with a little yellow clutch; a very, very big and wide white and gold bracelet; and an orange terrycloth head wrap.
