"Although less in-tents than Bryant Par, Lincoln Center will be a wonderful home for the inspiring and clothes minded"
- Kenneth Cole
Day 7 of Fashion Week brought us plenty of color, with a bold combination of orange and blue at Tory Burch. Candy colored tights shouted from under school girl skirts, topped off with cheeky berets at Milly. Marchesa delivered a dose of gorgeous glamour with elaborate draping and perfectly tailored gowns in shades of white, red, cerulean, red and everything in between. Michael Kors made me want to buy the entire runway, which was filled with louche chunky knits in camels and grays: a welcome return to the lux classics he does best after a strange attempt at the avant-guard in his spring collection.
My pick for today's Look du Jour comes from another of my favorite collections of the day: 3.1 Philip Lim. Lim rarely disappoints, and this season was no different. Streamlined shapes met graphic prints and rich fabrics with just the right embellishments peppered throughout. His jackets and outerwear were to die for, and sure to be on everyone's must have list come fall. I chose the look below which showcases one of the most recent trends of the season - patterned pants. These are a fresh and modern take on a classic silhouette and 70's vibe, done in giant checks muted colors.
