nyfw: highlights and lowlights

new york fashion week sees all the big names,
ralph lauren, calvin klein, oscar de la renta...
and now, the one that i was truly psyched about, a new name on the nyc block.
the olsens' first fashion parade.

backstage, the sisters said,
"we wanted to do something low-key and straight to the point."
and that's exactly what it was.

with their signature classic colour pallette, luxe fabrics and understated yet edgy cuts,
there were so surprises.
but i liked it.

PD loves...

this boldly cut collarless, belted wrap coat, with leggings and glad sandals.
casual luxe, acheived flawlessly.

the natural look. i love the sheer top on the left.
reminds me a little of chloe s/s10.

this matte denim-blue python fabric.
very unique and so subtle.

overall, the twins didn't fail to deliver - stunning clothes in the styles their known for.
and how beautiful is that bouquet of flowers in the background?
i also love the brown leather rope-belt that was used throughout.

more key moments of the week, for me, include:

the glamourous, sexy and safari-chic looks at michael kors

as always, the dresses at marchesa. all of them. i love georgina chapman.

where were you when you found out?
memorable for all - the tragic death of sartorial legend, alexander mcqueen,
resulting in the cancelling of his show.

some hot street style - hows that for accessorising?

and, of course, what no fashion week can be without - a splash of anna wintour. in fur.

so, there we have it -
stunning moments,
exciting moments,
and extremely sad moments.
and now comes london fashion week... phew...
