NYFW: My favorites and reviews of Spring 2017 RTW part 2

As the shows continue to roll in, I have a new set of favorites for 2017's Spring RTW.


He had me at snake skin.... Joseph Altuzarra wanted to create something joyous, flirty, and fun given the harsh political climate we are facing.  The python prints used in this collection were inspired by the "Wild at Heart" film in which Nicolas Cage wore a python jacket.  From there were inspirations of Cherries, and lemons.   Here are my fav's.

This jacket is absolutely EVERYTHING!  Its python printed denim with sequin lemons.  I will definitely be on the look out for this jacket.

Diane von Furstenberg

DVF recently created and filled the role of chief creating officer.  It was filled by Jonathan Saunders let me give you a quick bio...  JS formally designed prints for Alexander McQueen and also consulted for Chloe and Pucci (off of this was in the early 2000's).  He showed at LFW for several years and even NFW, but returned to showing in London shortly after.  Before coming to DVF, he was the creative director at Pollini for whom designs for retail chains such as Target and Topshop.  He was succeeded by Nicholas Kirkwood.  So basically... JS kicked in the door waving the 44 (Biggie reference) and changed up the entire look of DVF.  I am not really sure how I feel about it.  I have never had this short of a fav list from this fashion house.  Diane.... What's up boo?

I was drawn to this jacket and pants.  Sure they are beautiful, but they looked mighty familiar....

From a 2014 post using Marc Jacobs fabric from mood.  It had squares on one side, and circles on the other.  IJS.........

This sweater is everything though. This was also the second pair of pants I saw in the collection that had a REALLY large cuff on them.

Jeremy Scott

I mean, we ALL know Jeremy Scott is a bit "different" and has been
been accused of creating outlandish clothing that no one would wear since the late 90's.  This collection did not steer in any alternate directions.  If anything, he is consistent. I found myself staring at certain pieces and even reviewing the line a couple time with fresh eyes to get no only some inspiration, but some understanding as well.  I mean, JS has been around for a LONG time.  There is obviously a market for this type of clothes and I am obviously missing something.

This skirt's image was either printed on pleated fabric or printed with very precise gaps.  Beautiful!!

Muva would definitely wear this jumpsuit.  I don't know where, but......

Carolina Herrera
HOLY DENIM!!! Anyone that knows me, know I LIVE for anything denim.  CH needs no introduction, she never fails.  The entire line from beginning to end were gorgeous, even the skirt she wore!

The placement of the tie is very elegant, and this skirt is stunning!

I'm literally looking for fabric to duplicate this jumpsuit.

I will be back tomorrow, there's so much more to share and more shows coming up!

  1. Have you seen Eloquii's tie front chambray cape top? I have a feeling you'd love it. I ordered it in a size larger than i normally buy and I'm really hoping it fits.
