I was truly inspired by the jewel tones in some of today’s picks. The two brands that stood out to me most in this category were Phelan (above) and Tadashi Shoji (below). Phelan’s collection this season had beautiful brassy and matalic tones that made the models look like they were wearing brushedΒ metal creations. I didn’t notice the pairings with sneakers until I took a closer look at the images before I posted.


Tadashi Shoji’s creations this season played with more traditional silhouettes and cuts. What wasn’t shown in these images are the full body imitation tattoo body sleeves (I’m not too sure what to call them to be honest with you). You can kind of see the effect to some extent on the top right image. The colors on the top two looks were phenomenal and contrasted beautifully with the patterns and designs. The two full length gowns also caught my eye with the way they swept the floor and transitioned beautifully from knee lenth to floor.

Altuzarra’s gowns had beautiful flowing layers on layers and looked as if they were jeweled bandanas stitched together. Instead of the usual strappy heels, it looks like the models wore pointed boots.


Finally, I stumbled on the more unique collections out of NYFW. Tracy Reese didnt just do her own take on menswear, she ran with it. The model sported socks with knee garters and boots, a combination that’s rare even in the menswear world. Her collection was reminiscent of mid century menswear style and also the loose, drapy day dresses of the Edwardian era and the 20s.
