Sunday at NYFW was all about the ladies. Riffing off the SS12 sportswear trend, Kate Lanphear-favorite Katie Gallagher set the bar high by infusing her signature sportswear with dramatic details, like blood red separates that matched the bloody vials guarding her presentation platform. More girl power – and yet another super sartorial star encounter (hint: her initials are A.D.R.) – right this way.
Gwen Stefani might have been MIA for her L.A.M.B. presentation at Lincoln Center, but her stylish spirit definitely infiltrated the room through her brand’s charming spring offerings. I’m lusting after the tough-collared babydoll dress above.
In between shows, I spotted Anna Dello Russo, who we’re very obviously obsessed with. She was surprisingly open – excited, even – to get her photo snapped. Like Gallagher, another rising star in the female fashion designer arena is Jen Kao, who turned out a captivating collection of delicate pieces with whimsical details in sherbet hues. I couldn’t take my eyes off the checkered crochet numbers. Photos: Style.com
Finally, I couldn’t end this NYFWeekend recap without a shout-out to Kanon Vodka and their ingenious pop-up bar at Milk Studios this season. Complete with custom drinks inspired by collections from the likes of Jeremy Scott and the aforementioned Gallagher, fashion’s favorite organic booze kept us all fueled and festive.
