It’s Fashion Week in NYC, and we’re getting the inside scoop on the
hottest shows and trends for Fall ‘09 from the style mavens at shopbop.com
Aside from the celebs, models, designers and perfectly put-together looks coming down the runways, one of the most enjoyable parts of fashion week is the people watching. Checking out what everyone is wearing at the show, around the show and especially in the front row is practically the best part of attending the events. We love it and it always makes us want to shop! Alice + Olivia:
A veritable celeb-fest (Nikki and Paris Hilton, Julia Stiles, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, and of course, Stacey Bendet-Eisner herself, to name but a few) replete with mini cupcakes, marionettes, champagne and candy galore, the Alice + Olivia presentation (at their New York flagship store) was a riot of playful decadence that captured the spirit of their fall collection to a (beaded black) tee. Fall’s “Material Girl” look (an ’80s-inspired look typified by leggings paired with party dresses) was a big story here. Diane von Furstenberg:
A quote from DVF in the program for her fall 2009 Nomad collection reads: “Wherever she goes, she belongs…her clothes are her friends.” And while other designers are going austere and understated, she knows we could use something to brighten our outlook about now, and she delivers it in this tactile, eclectic collection of styles both statement-making and versatile. On the runway this translated into velvet pieces for day or evening (we predict this will be an important fabric for fall), lace, lamé, oversized and printed sweaters, bold animal prints, rainbow plaid, deep purples, vibrant pinks, gold, and sweetly offbeat pom-pom details.
