If you didn’t already know, it’s the first week of fashion month! Every September, designers kick off the start of a month long display of both ready to wear and couture looks. Day one of #NYFW was brilliant! Collections from BCBG Max Azria, Desigual, Marissa Webb, and Tadashi (among many others) led the way with their looks for Spring 2014. Here’s a quick recap of my favorite outfits from #NYFW Day 1:
BCBG Max Azria
The Spring 2014 collection was definitely “Bon Chic.” From easy, breezy nautical looks in pastel hues to graphic florals that pop against a black backdrop, it’s safe to say Azria knows exactly what he’s doing. My top three favorite looks from the runway include:
This floral printed blouse and graphic asymmetrical skirt.
This sear sucker-esque cut-out top and breezy pants.
This pale blue jacket and snake print skirt.
I guess I’m more of a nautical fan than I originally thought. Here are some more looks from Azria’s Spring 2014 collection:
This was the first time I’ve ever experienced a collection from this designer, but I was instantly drawn to the
This colorful collared A-line dress.
This graphic black and top and skirt.
This beautiful jacket featuring a colorful abstract print, red lining and multi-colored buttons.
A few more looks to love from Desigual 2014 are:
Webb’s Spring 2014 collection was truly stunning thanks to the luxurious materials the designer used to create effortless sihlouettes. A warm color palette and a few edgier pieces featuring leather details are definitely my style. My favorites from her collection include:
This delicate lace top paired with a tweed and leather asymmetrical skirt.
This powerful. long sleeved red dress.
This refined, feminine floral number juxtaposed with a menswear inspired white collar shirt and tie.
There is plenty more to love from Webb, including:
Tadashi Shoji knows that eveningwear is a hot commodity, and his Spring 2014 collection did not dissapoint. It’s easy to see that Shoji was inspired by the 1920’s era (an ode to Gatsby maybe?) due to the loose fit, pastel color palette and embellishments seen throughout the collection. My favorite evening dresses were:
This lavendar printed dress.
This sequin and fringe sparkler.
This structured pink dress featuring fan-like appliques.
More eveningwear looks to love include:
