NYC Fashion Week.... favourites so far

There has been a varied selection of shows so far in New York with a few early trends beginning to emerge. Presentations, The Lake & Stars/NAHM, to runway shows Doo.Ri/Rag and Bone, there is always something for everyone. The big guns began to show, literally in wild west DVF runway, over the weekend. Then there were Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham (who was rumoured to be showcasing a shoe line this season, adding to her accessories) and Tommy Hilfiger.

So back to the beginning.

Mr Wu was thrust into the spotlight by Mrs Obama and so far has retained the star status deservedly. His beautiful set inspired by the restoration of Versailles already had my heart beating faster, and I was hoping the clothes would match. They did. Lace trims on jacket sleeves, neat tailoring, ladylike puff skirts and layers of chiffon. All totally wearable and therefore straight onto my wish list. Fellow stylist Angie Smith agrees, her thoughts here and as always a fabulous report by Susie (Style) Bubble here.

Then came the understated Doo-Ri. Floor skimmingly simple and trade mark draping all contained in this slick show. Beautiful.

Other shows that caught my eye were the fluid and bright dresses at Costello Tagliapietra, ice whites and wool at Rag and Bone, shirts dresses in all sorts of guises from NAHM, elegant coloumn dresses from Peter Som and not forgetting a cheeky pair of knickers to finish from The Lake and Stars.
