Spring 2011 Fashion Week: New York pt. 2

I am not going to begin to try to cover all the collections from New York; I'll just highlight a few looks from three of my favorite spring shows.

The Mulleavy sisters are some of the most creative designers in the biz, taking dark or ugly inspirations (decay, Frankenstein, scars) and turning them into art on the runway.  This season they were inspired by 70s suburbia in California. The collection was more tailored and wearable than their previous ones, therefore highly covetable by moi.  I am loving their wood grain prints--who would have thought that would turn out so beautifully?

Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler are another immensely talented young pair.  They manage to make every collection look young and fresh, creating covetable fashion-forward seperates.  This season, they put a spin on classic "ladies who lunch" pieces, rendering them in neon tweeds and lace.  You really need to see the detail photos to appreciate their work with the textiles, as each piece has amazing texture. Proenza always has great accessories too--their bags and jewelry are to die for here. 

Marc Jacobs usually plays with ugly pretty clothes in a mishmash of styles, but this one was just full on glamour.  Marc has transitioned from the serious 50s inspired clothes of his fall collection to fun 70s garb for the spring.  The frocks are long, flowy and saturated in color.  The playful styling is half the appeal of the collection--the frizzed out hair, oversized flowers, and colored wooden heels look like so much fun.
