It’s a cold day in the city but the icy weather isn’t going to stop New York Fashion Week. The fashion industry braved the flurries and made day three a success. Below, the designers who warmed us with delight this Saturday.
Mara Hoffman – Prints have crossed over to the dark side; in a good way. Mara Hoffman is known for weaving spirituality into her designs and Fall 2012 doesn’t veer far from her usual. The overall feel was mystical with the use of bold prints balanced by sharp tones of red, black and white. A very wearable collection for the high-fashion loving Bohemian.
Hervé Léger by Max Azria – Harnesses and strapped-up boots evoke thoughts of a dominatrix; but the models strutting the Hervé Léger catwalk transformed the items of bondage into sexy, sultry accessories to add edge to form-fitting dresses. The nude pieces, paired with cognac leather accessories were subtle in their approach – a contrast from the black leather paired with the white, black and patterned pieces.
Miguel Adrover – If you have yet to be moved this fashion week, take a look at Miguel Adrover’s Fall 2012 Collection and read into the not-so-subliminal messaging. Throw in a little bit of controversy while you’re at it and you will see fashion at it’s best. Re-worked fabrics, clothing and items such as rugs and sheets formed a collection that left viewers enchanted and dare I say…thinking? Hats off to Adrover for pushing the envelope and creating looks that are globally street-worthy.
