Highlight of my day
Marc Jacobs delivered a very understated collection, seemingly inspired by the grey dress worn by Maria in The Sound of Music when she meets the children. Very straight forward cuts and shapes with curved hems and texture added using fur. Adding to the trend set by Burberry, grey socks were worn under heels, and accessories included leather and fur trimmed bags. Surprising for Marc Jacobs, but perhaps I’m too used to his Marc by Marc Jacobs collection of bright colours and boyish shapes.
Autumn Winter 2010/11 from Marc by Marc Jacobs had some beautiful bags, almost Gucci style with the tri band straps and patent leather with a gold plague. These bags are the first to really tempt me since the Gucci Autumn Winter 2008/9 bags.Michael Kors delivered more classic style with his 1940s pilot style, but unfortunately it seemed a little too close to Burberry's menswear collection as well as being similar to collections in 2006/7 with the leather belts. Although gorgeous, it's been seen before, and you might find something similar lurking in the back of your wardrobe (or you could piece it together by only adding a few more items to your collection).
By far my favourite, as per usual during New York Fashion Week, has to be Marchesa. Creating perfection yet again with lace, beading, transparent fabrics and silk, Georgina Chapman said she was inspired by Lola Montez, performer and courtesan in the 1800s. With Moulin Rouge style combined with flashes of bright coloured fitted dresses with running corsages around the frame, Marchesa has provided it's usual glamour and goddess beauty.
