New York Fall ’12 Fashion Week: My Top 9 (Part Two)!

February 20, 2012 § 1 Comment

I reviewed my favorite collections (from nine through six) earlier, and now I present to you my top five collections from Fall ’12 New York Fashion Week!

Here we go!

5. Alexander Wang

It has been interesting to see how Wang has turned his brand from a downtown secret to a worldwide phenomenon. But this transition has not been easy, as Wang seemed to have lost his street-inspired edge. But his F/W collection reflected a hint of his past aesthetic, with its utilitarian theme and risky fabric use.

4. Theyskens’ Theory

This brand brings it season after season with seriously cool and city-ready pieces that any girl would kill to have in her wardrobe. This season’s collections adds a bit of glam with its glizty tops and metallic threads. It is very contemporary but in no way commercial; buyers will definitely eat this collection up!

3. 3.1 Phillip Lim

Whenever I think of a designer that embodies NYC’s style, my mind goes straight to Phillip Lim. His F/W collection was bold, strong, confident, sexy and very chic – all traits of the typical city girl. The punch of graphic elements were a fun spin on the looks too!

2. Jason Wu

I’ve never been a huge fan of Jason Wu, but his F/W collection definitely changed my view on his usually ultra-feminine collections. This collection took a complete 180, with Oriental and militant influences. With its, the looks were a bit dangerous which made it all the more compelling.

1. Proenza Schouler

The collection takes obvious nonchalant Parisian-cool influence from Ghesquire’s reign at Balenciaga, but makes it Proenza Schouler with its NYC modern edge. This show gave us new silhouettes, new fabrics, architectural construction, cleaner and modern lines and a return to the downtown “It” girl theme they have become praised for. To put it simply, this collection was perfect!
