Trend Alert: Caped Crusaders

This fall we’re falling for a trend that has us feeling almost superhuman. This season let’s leave the emblazoned letters to the superheroes, but try their capes on for size. These elegant alternatives to jackets and coats are the perfect solution for those who prefer a little mobility in their outerwear. Not only are capes sophisticated and stylish, they’re also supremely comfortable. They also look perfect paired with a mini-dress or with tucked in jeans and killer boots for the ultimate in fall style. cfe2aa69e41081f36ea93ef6f328afae

NYFW: Oscar de la Renta

Oscar did it again. We’re blown away by his Spring 2014 Collection! Each piece that graced the runway reminded you of the warm spring air and hot summer nights that seem so far away now. In my opinion Oscar always chooses the perfect colors; this collection featured gorgeous shades of blue, pink, coral, white and black. There was also a play on patterns from textured crochet lace, to metallic floral embroidery. This collection is perfect for the classy and chic woman who enjoys modern style and sexy silhouettes. We cannot wait to see which celebrities rock these looks on the red carpet.

It’s all in the details: Donna Karan

Each season we love seeing what designers put on the runway. Even though the garments take priority, the styling is essential. The wrong hairstyle, makeup or accessories can compromise even the best outfits. We were so inspired by the way Donna Karan accessorized each of her pieces. Her clothes are spectacular on their own so it left us in anticipation waiting to see how they would be styled.  The chic accessories included natural and dark leather trim, gold buckles and metal accents that tied each look together. _D7Q0011.450x675 _D7Q0014.450x675 _D7Q0017.450x675 _D7Q0025.450x675 _D7Q0039.450x675 _D7Q0050.450x675 _D7Q0058.450x675 _D7Q0110.450x675 _D7Q0145.450x675 _D7Q0209.450x675 _D7Q0223.450x675

Rhinestones on the Runway

Many designers use rhinestones to enhance pieces within their collection. Some designers add a few stones here and there while others create works of art. Judith Leiber is one designer who has made a name for herself for her innovative use of crystals and rhinestones. Her initial bag created due to a shipping error which left many of her bags damaged. Rather than throwing the bags away, Judith began decorating them with a variety of small crystals. Ms. Leiber’s creative instincts may have inspired some of the runway looks we see today. Here are some of our favorite rhinestone-enhanced looks from the runway.

Chains on the Runway

Many runway shows are very intimidating. There’s a fierce model walking down with a well calculated soundtrack matching each step. We often overlook the details of each piece. While examining some of the recent runway looks, we came across M&J-like trims that resemble the most coveted pieces.

Designers have been using various mediums such as fur, lace, beads, fabric  and appliques to incorporate these patterns. Below are some of our favorite floral runway pieces that give us the urge to create some of our very own pieces.
