THE RECENT NEW YORK FALL COLLECTIONS were awash with formal and casual styles, alike, all handsomely embellished by the most imaginative and exciting fashion accessories, from hats to jewelry.  This was quite an exposition!  Check out some of these brilliant designers:

 

OSCAR DE LA RENTA:  For those in love with DressUp, Oscar de la Renta came through loud and clear.  Here were vivid, rich, intense colors:  scarlet reds and emerald greens, offset by soft, dusty tannish-grey neutrals that were very fresh and creative.  The designer put forth a wonderful orange-red skirt with an exciting pendant-brooch on the jacket, a big, furry hat, and little red gloves.  Smashing! 

 

A hot green satin evening dress was complemented by a huge square-cut emerald ring outlined in diamonds.  A skinny straight lined sleeveless sheath dress was given real excitement with a bright multi-colored  bead necklace and stacked, colorful cuff bracelets, all with a tinge of Africana. Very sophisticated and accessory-smart!

 

MICHAEL KORS:  This standup New York designer took off on a casual design train with hints of the last frontier.  Fluffy furs and knee-high boots with cozy wrap caps and big scarves, all in very neutral colors, were fun and adventurous-looking.  Kors was into belts like crazy – lots of belts, from skinny little dropped waist belts to belts that wrap around the bodice several times in a very hot, new look.

 

TORY BURCH:  Here’s a designer who keeps getting bigger each season! This year, Tory was strong on WWII aviation looks, unexpectedly matched to glittery gemstone-rich evening bags and sparkly rhinestone cuff bracelets.  What a fascinating combination, all in black and gray. 

   –This newest move toward combining the most diverse styles (i.e., very formal, plus very sportif) does come through in a fascinating way when done by a master!

 

YOU CAN ENJOY THE HIGH FASHION PRESTIGE OF PRODUCT COMBINATIONS BY ADDING YOUR IMAGINATION TO THESE GREAT VALUE

PRODUCTS:

 

 

 

 

 

  • Agate semi-precious necklace and earrings.  Society-smart!

 

 

                                           Hang-Out Wear

MARC BY MARC JACOBS:  The designer that everybody in the Big Apple literally adores showed a parade of military and outdoorsy work clothes, none very Manhattan-like, but possibly meant to lure society ladies into a more functional way of life!  There were touches of romanticism in Jacobs’ line, too, and pretty floral prints, along with a sort of ruffled-up looking grouping of just plain hang-out wear. 

     Jacobs worked with sage green nicely, and added in a sweet amount of African-print detailing.  Belts were skinny.  Socks were short.  Sunglasses were big, black, and bold.  Daring! 

 

NANETTE LEPORE: Give high grades to this design house for its rich, rich fabrics this year.  Here you could find beaded dresses and moleskin jackets, velveteen pants and copper-toned lace blouses and skirts.  Purple was a signet color, along with orange.  Belts were medium-width with conservative but interesting buckles.  Very classy!

 

                                       It’s a Dynamite Wrap!

 

A QUICK WRAP ON extra accessories sizzling across Broadway for Fall has to include jungle fare – things like that big leopard-print handbag at Mulberry.  Or, oceanography, like a blue-green scarf wrap at Chris Benz. Or, a big, tribal-designed circle choker at Christian Cota.  Or, a British Nationals effect, as in a jaunty pull down hat at Alex Chung for Madewell.  Or, just a wonderful and nifty French beret at Kate Spade.  What great stuff!

 

For those who like plaids, Sang A’s new Scottish Highlands bag was a great show choice.  It’s a tote and handle bag, carries plenty, and has enough brightness to warm any winter day. 

   –Scarves were likewise in big demand here, elegant, embellished, glitter scarves as well as casual, soft, and cozy ones. 

   –Here, too, was an interesting new combination: a long skinny patterned scarf wrapped around the neck several times, and worn with a beaded necklace. At the very chic Provo. Good looking and terrific not just for wear but for retail display.  Wow!

 

And, as a nod to the masculine gender, look at those kookie bow ties seen at the Expo! Seen at Wuyork and suitable for men and women, the designs included sassy and sleek purple satin bow ties as a brand new twist on a very traditional style. 

 

GETTING READY FOR FALL ALSO MEANS GETTING READY FOR SPRING, BECAUSE MANY OF THESE VIBRANT TRENDS ARE BREAKING ON THE ACCESSORIES SCENE NOW.  JUST LOOK AT THESE EXAMPLES:
