New York kicked off Fashion Month, but I promise you I won't bombard you with show pictures. If you want to see them all, the online world is your oyster then--visit Vogue, Style, WWD, etc. In all honesty I haven't looked at any of the shows yet, I will eventually scroll through some of my favorites [The Row, Elizabeth and James, Calvin, Steven Alan, J.Lindeburg, Jil Sander Navy, M.Patmos.. to name a few] but after doing extensive research as an intern, the fun of scrolling through show images has been lost on me. Plus, as much as I love autumn/winter fashions, I need to focus on building up my wardrobe with pieces I can wear during the spring/summer; other than oversized men's shirts and shorts! I will say I have looked through the J.Crew show, and per usual [sans the Spring Collection- I only liked some aspects of that] I love it. I always love their autumn collections though. The rich colors, the tie-silk-like prints, the mix of casual-wear into less casual outfits [something I love more than I should], baseball caps for all occasions [I love a good baseball cap! It's my inner Delia Brown showing. Also you get a gold star if you get the reference!]. It's all very Dries-esque, which I didn't realize until I read Scott's post over on The Sartorialist. To which, I naturally couldn't believe that I missed the connection until then. Dries has been one of my favorite designers from the beginning and I have always admired his ability to mix patterns, textures, prints, colors... it all. You'll hear me drone on about Dries once that show takes place, so I will spare you until then. So instead I will leave you with the above pictures of my favorite looks from the J.Crew show [which is you click on they will enlarge], as well as the bellow close-ups taken by Scott.
The first image I will say is my absolute favorite of the entire collection. That coat, I fell in love with the second I saw the picture over on Style. It is exquisite! The embroidery, the details, the contrast of colors... I already feel like I need it in my wardrobe. Then that shirt- I love a good fine tie-silk print, and this is no exception. It too is exquisite and is in great contrast with the coat. I would love a beautiful tie-silk printed button-up in my wardrobe, and this one is perfect. We'll see what happens come autumn I suppose...
