Bold & Bright for Fall 2010 from NYFW - @Splendicity

Fall and winter accessories tend to be softer colors like neutrals or bold, but still seasonal, black or white.  The majority of the designers from New York Fashion Week are using neutral palettes for their Fall & Winter 2010 runway shows, but some designers have gone with a bolder choice of color instead.

Michael Kors Delivers the Ultimate (Luxe) Winter Wardrobe For Fall 2010 - @Coutorture

“Fall 2010 is all about texture, texture, texture,” Michael Kors told us backstage before his fashion show this morning. Texture which soon appeared on the runwway (mostly in a palette of camel and gray) in the form of giant furs, crushed cashmere, ribbed knitwear, tweeds, and mohair.

If you’re having a hard time remembering just how much you shop and where exactly all your money is going, no worries—there’s an app for that! The mobile application Foursquare is a genius idea that allows users to unlock “badges” by “checking in” and telling all their friends where they’re eating, shopping and partying.

On the Runway, Pairing the Glitzy and the Humble - @Wsjlifestyle

Sequins and shearling. Red dresses and hiking boots. Crystal beads and cotton shirts. Designers turned to glamorous looks on Wednesday, but in keeping with the cautious mood of the fashion industry during New York Fashion Week, they toned down the glitz at every turn.

Would You Wear Super-Smoky Eyes Like Leighton? - @StyleWatchMag

We may have come to love Leighton Meester as fresh-faced, headband-loved Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, but this year, she’s channeled her inner rockstar for a successful singing career — and some serious makeup in the process.

This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending designer Abigail Lorick’s New York Fashion Week presentation for Fall 2010. You may have seen past Lorick collections which gained noteriety as Eleanor Waldorf’s label on Gossip Girl.

Housed in downstairs in the Union Ballroom, the descent down the stairs led to a dimly lit room where editors and press gathered to view Lorick’s confections inspired by angels in cocoons. The key to this collection is layering, layering and more layering. The pairing of lighter sheer fabrics layered underneath heavier fabrics (raw silk) gave a youthful feel to the dresses and separates making up the collection. The palette was definitely neutral, but still dramatic - taupes, black, and gold metallics accented with flashes of gray and green played throughout.

Overall the collection was very well executed with a youthful, creative and uptown energy. The styling consisted of eclectic accessories which added an additional layer of interest. Think modern day flapper chic - long brightly colored gloves in orange, green, and black. Ginormous feather headpieces, bows and hats graced the model’s wild untamed hair. Ankle booties and wedge platform sandals were worn over glittery metallic semi-sheer tights, and black opaque tights giving gravity to the whimsical designs. Statement necklaces appeared as beaded collars and layered strands of baubles, pearls and gold chains. Embellishment was added with accessories to the otherwise very clean cut silhouettes of the clothing. Hemlines were thigh high and exuded the charming youthful appeal.
