JBCStyle – NYFW Top Picks – Day 2

It’s day two and New York Fashion Week continues.  It was hard to limit our list to only three favorites but the spots go to:

Jason Wu - Yes, the Jason Wu for Target collection is in stores now and the commercial with the kitty is too cute; but his Fall 2012 RTW collection is here to remind us, the runway is where he shines.  I could look at this collection over and over again.  Not only for the intricate details; but for the cinematic feel of the show that began with giant Forbidden City doors opening into the runway.  Inspired by Chinese military and history and a touch of Hollywood “Shanghai Express” charm, army green and red come together to stand guard for feminine skirts, belted waists, fur sleeves and collars and more fine details.


Doo.Ri - Influence stemmed from Butoh dance as cited in the shows notes.  Known best for her impeccable draping skills, Doo-Ri Chung created a collection of form-fitting silhouettes that demonstrated soft movement.   The whimsical feel of the show was grounded by the use of laser cutting and dark shades of eggplant and brown.


Billy Reid – This Louisiana-raised designer started out in the menswear and accessories categories.  In 2008, Reid added a women’s wear collection to round out the Billy Reid label.  The outerwear pieces for both men and women are what grabbed our attention.  For the guys, a variety of fabrics, leathers and materials displayed Reid’s menswear capabilities.  For the ladies, we noticed the same variety with a touch of cinch-worthy draping.  Check it out below…
