Don't you just love Live Streaming? I managed to watch two shows yesterday, Derek Lam and DKNY and loved them both. I get a bit worried that I love everything I see, then I remind myself of the Rodarte show in February and realise that actually I don't!
Derek Lam, was love, love, love for its simplicity with a twist. A classic white trench came down the Runway and as the model turned we were treated to a rather unexpected peplum at the back, which went on to feature on the back of some of the tops and tunics in the collection. An array of gorgeous white dresses (perhaps I will finally get one next summer) intermingled with a sprinkling of neutrals and some sheer maxi dresses of which the leopard print was my favourite, naturally.
DKNY saw lots of tailoring with camel, white and black with red accessories which worked really well. The famous "Body" first introuduced to the fashion world by Donna Karen, took on a new dimension with its one shouldered and ruffle detail and I was amazed to see a red top teamed with salmon pink capri pants after my post about SJP the other day, but this really worked! Ruffles, scarves and bow belts featured heavily throughout a collection that consisted mainly of block colours with just a few garments featuring a delicate ditzy print.
