"What happened in Bryant Park was magic"-Judy Licht, Lifestyle Correspondent
This week of wonder is winding down to a close, with just a couple more days to go. On Day 6 of New York Fashion Week 2010, we got a double dose of subtle luxury with straightforward and minimalist designs from both Max Azria and The Row. Elie Tahari premiered a wardrobe for the urban sophisticate, filled with black, white and neutral tones done in elegant-yet-fresh fashions. Narciso Rodriguez played with color blocking and draping, while Rodarte just piled on the floral prints in a layered fleshy-toned palette. Sophie Theallet's much anticipated collection since winning the CFDA award painted a boho picture of prairie prints and a gypsy vibe.
My pick for Look du Jour comes (surprisingly) from the Upper East Side's favorite furrier - Dennis Basso. I just love the way this full length fox fur coat manages to look hip 30-something girl-about-town, rather than dusty and dated, 70-something rich-lady - thanks to the pairing of skinny black pants and bitchin' knee high boots (did I just say bitchin'?) And even MORE of a shocker, is that I had to include a 2nd Look du Jour from Dennis Basso - this uber chic dress. I figured if it was from the same collection, I didn't count...
