After countless amounts of shows, hairspray bottles used, models cat-walking down the runway and 2 of our favorite New York designers’ shows, Donna Karan and Nanette Lepore, New York Fashion Week has come to an end. As we jump the Atlantic sea to London today, we're reflecting on what the Big Apple has served us these past 8 days!
On the catwalk, some trends emerged early:
Donna Karan returned to her urban roots for spring, delivering a beautiful collection featuring languid dresses slung with leather belts at the hips, softly constructed coats and jackets that slipped on like a robe, an inviting palette of sea blues and warm, sunbaked browns.
While Nanette Lepore drew inspiration flowing from Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal, Nanette cites with neo-romanticism as her biggest inspiration for her Spring/Summer 2014 collection with deep reds, soft elegant blues and clean chic whites.

“I am a New York woman, embracing the world. Designing clothes that move day to night. This collection is the evolution of the seven pieces.”
Evening paints the body with artisan strokes-- From the simplicity of a jersey body that sculpts the form, to the heights of luxury in velvets, satins and sequins; each an individual force of artistry and seduction.
“These are clothes for women like me- who live and work 24/7 with passion and dress with emotion. I believe the body talked a language all its own. Depending on your DNA, these clothes say something new every time and create a statement all your own.”
Experience this collection at the Donna Karan boutique inside The Shops at Crystals.
