A review of NY FW

A little oppinion on what I've seen on the catwalks these few weeks. It seems like blue is the new red (even though we did had some amazing red pieces) and nude is the new black.Don't you think? Everybody it's crazy about that electric blue and the nude, beige, earthy (autumnly...) colors are every where.There's also the print issue, that is: you either go with bold print or non at all. They're still playing with geometry a lot,a lot of interesting volums, a lot of shapes.

The tights are still hot (which is great in my oppinion!) with their little sister,the high socks. A little surprizing for me is the fact that platforms are not going anywhere in 2010, while some of the predictions were that we'll slowely go back to the kitten heel. Not for the moment, no. Dresses and skirts are still, most of the times, very short (yey!) or very long. But I think the idea is to play with texture, play with very bold colors and mix them with the nudes and the black, don't be afraid of original shapes,don't be afraid of volume and hights.

I especially liked Betsey Johnson and Lacoste. You might wonder: what do they have in common? I'll tell you what: the models smiled! Yes people, real models actually smiling on the catwalk. Don't know about you, but that is so refreshing for me when I see it! It's lovely to look at someone in fabulous clothes smiling,not looking angry like hell :))

I also loved the Naeem Khan collection. It was fabulous! The materials were so rich, so luxurious, it was like a night at the palace :D

So what else did you see as highlights on the trends? What collection did you enjoy better?
Below are a few of my favs :)
