“Sportswear as American as red, white, and blue is where Michael truly excels. Plaids and ginghams as fresh as Summer showed in sundresses and cropped pants paired with midriff-wrapped shirts. Crisp white shirts topped garden floral skirts and tulle skirts embroidered with daisies, lilacs and garden blossoms.”

3.1 Phillip Lim

3.1 Phillip Lim

“This was Phillip at his best – feminine with an edge and lots of great details his followers will love.  Baroque flourishes taken from an ancanthus leaf motif were swirled on fabrics and curled around the body to create shaped jackets, dresses and tops.  An engineered cane print mixed back to florals spoke to the mixed-prints trend we saw on nearly every runway.  Shades of cream with touches of  gold, peach, and apricot mixed on curvy tops and jackets that appeared over narrow pants, gym-inspired shorts, and A-line skirts and dresses.  Black and pine green served as a nice contrast to the pale palette, while leather details and utility straps kept the darker pieces interesting and cool.”

Carolina Herrera Spring 2015 Carolina Herrera Spring 2015 Carolina Herrera Spring 2015

“Asian influences prevailed throughout Mrs. Herrera’s Spring collection that was made modern with floral photo prints and neoprene techno fabrics.  Kimono influences shone in jackets, necklines and sleeves, updating the ladylike sensibility of the  clothes.  White was the canvas for the pink and violet floral motifs throughout the show.  Dramatic evening dresses were embellished with tiles that had been printed with the floral then and then cut into irregular, geometric pieces and reapplied to create a shattered image. Cleverly cut midriff tops paired with long gowns gave a youthful approach to evening dressing, while flat sandals with an oriental feel lent freshness to both day and evening looks”

Herve Leger

Herve Leger Herve Leger Herve Leger

“Orientalism was executed perfectly at Herve Leger by Lubov Azria.  Sexy, figure-conscious kimono-sleeve bodices topped pencil skirts, while orgami details on necklines gave a subtle nod to the Asian influence.  Mixed patterns and prints on the signature bandage knit lent an exoticism to the collection.  The blush-with-black trend continued here (often with geometric Cubist cutouts), but it’s the intensity of the color, the madcap macrame, and nomadic details that made this collection a triumph.”

“Oscar de la Renta always shows Spring is about prettiness, and this season he went to what he knows best: feminine elegance with flowers, lace, and touches of gingham toppers over trousers and sheer gingham skirts.  Abundant lace in black and white mixes floated down the runway in full, midi-skirts and dresses paired with flat sandals.  Colorful floral embroideries detailed pretty tulle and organza dresses that will thrill fans of every age. And for night, Pale pink lace, a bejeweled aqua gown, and dramatic combinations of black and white will keep Spring and Summer galas thoroughly glamorous.”

“Color was the name of the game on the runway at Lela Rose.  Brilliant fuchsia and canary yellow punctuated the graphic play of black and white, eventually giving way to a sea of blues.  A palette of blush and cream softened the mood, while ornate beading and shimmering organza lent lightness and textural interest.  Polka dots and garden roses were the prominent prints, showing up on everything from kimono jackets and flowing midi-skirts, to day dresses all Lela devotees will love to give a twirl this Spring.”

Don’t get us wrong, classic is key, but lately we’re loving deep hues (like eggplant, forest and navy) as a stand-in for black: they’re equally chic and slimming, but offer a hint of the unexpected. We’d add a statement necklace to the plunging V of this silky dress from Ali Ro.

Smile for the Camera: MICHAEL KORS’S mini Janey bag may have been inspired by analog camera cases, but it’s built for the digital generation. “I love the shape and structure of those old camera bags, but given that our phone is now our camera, this is the bag to make you edit,” he explains. consider this an opportunity to streamline your arsenal to include just the essentials.  “it’s also a rugged add-on to fall’s romantic and powdery fashion palette,” Kors says of the style, referencing its range-ready French calf leather, thick whipstitch detailing, and stirrup-like buckle.  The only dilemma? Deciding whether to wear that long strap over your shoulder or across the body.  Either way, it’s reason enough to strike a pose.

Makeup How-To: Bronze Smokey EyeBronzes, coppers, and light browns make for a sultry date-night look and work on any eye color.

Smokey Eyes Tutorial Smokey Eyes Tutorial

Step 1 and 2. Bronze shadow works for every eye color. Press a medium bronze shadow from lash line to crease and softly blend the edges. Then, apply the same color underneath the lash line in a thick swipe.

Step 3 and 4. Eyeshadows stay longer when applied with a damp brush. Dampen an eyeliner brush to apply a brown shadow liner and blend upward. Then, use the same brown shadow underneath the lash line in a thin swipe.

Step 5 and 6. Make your eyes pop. Darken the lash line more with a black shadow liner and blend upward using the same damp brush. Be sure to do the same on the underneath lash line.

Step 7. Lightly add a shimmery shadow. Dab a copper shadow, a few shades lighter than the bronze one, across the lid to soften the look and add dimension.

Step 8. Very lightly trace your eye and blend in matte shadow. Outline the existing shadow with a matte brown one starting from the inner corner going all the way around the entire eye. This creates more depth and really plays up the smokiness of the look.

Step 9. Highlight the inner corner of your eye. Apply Make Up For Ever 7K Metal Gold Kohl Pencil ($17; makeupforever.com) just inside the matte brown shadow on the inner corner of the eye for contrast.

Step 10. Apply two coats of your favorite black mascara.

What to Pack New York Fashion Week : Master the city’s uptown polish

Burgandy

THE HOT COLOR: Burgandy
Burgundy was the most prolific hue on the FW14 runways and, as a more sensual alternative to purist shades, it’s a wonder it hasn’t been in the spotlight sooner. For the most flattering color combination, pair with camel or blue, or simply wear head to toe, runway-style.

Free People & Anthropologie – August Edition

Free People August Issue

Free People & Anthropologie August Lookbooks

We thought we’d highlight some of the best images from both the Free People and Anthropologie August Lookbooks in order to celebrate two diverse approaches to Fall Fashion.

Free People: Transport yourself to a land of cashmere, milk, and honey. Cozy sweaters, fall-ready boots and the perfect jacket have reinvigorated our love for this time of year.
Anthropology: Is there anything more hypnotic than windmill sails and petals far and wide? Maybe, just maybe, the answer is Anthropologie’s  latest prints and accessories.

Free People:

This month, Free People took a grand step into the editorial world with their first ever magazine formatted catalog, The August Issue. This ‘magalog’ features top model, Joan Smalls and content by industry leader, Kristen Tice Studeman. The issue features style tips, fall fashion trends and model interviews. The pages are rich with cozy sweaters, fall-ready boots, flawless jackets, rich jewels, and intricate embellishments reinvigorating our love for this time of year. From editorial shoots to interviews with some of their favorite artists and icons, it captures and embodies the spirit of FP!

The August Catalog is a mixture of exquisite and inspiring imagery, styling ideas, inside information, and above all, the fall fashion we’re most excited to wear.

Reining in the season and lure is cover model, Joan Smalls, to One-to-Watch, French actress and former model, Rebecca Dayan. Favorite fall trends take you on a journey from the cozy layering of Soft Focus to the rich jewel tones and intricate embellishments of Modern Marrakesh. Martha Hunt brings a modern western vibe to Lone Rider and extreme beauty Sasha Luss closes the magazine with a fashion-forward take on grunge dressing in Autumn Daze.

“No matter where we are in life, I think we all feel it – we feel that burn deep within, that wildfire that is impossible to put out.  We get caught up in our daily routines and it flickers, it fades, but then? Out of nowhere, the slightest breeze feeds it new life and it grows, it spreads, it takes over our consciousness.  It manifests itself in different ways for everyone – for some, it pours out of the soul in the form of a painting, in watercolors splashed across canvas.  For others, it comes out as words, sentences that burn up the pages of a journal.  And for others still, it comes as a need to wander, to run – to chase after that glowing ember on the horizon.  Don’t give up the chase, for it’s this never-ending hunt that drives us through the most memorable moments of our lives.  Feed your inner wildfire, let it burn and light your way.” ~ Free People

ANTHROPOLOGIE

Anthropologie

Anthropologie’s August 2014 Lookbook is stunning. Saturated in romance and serenity and vibrating with a wonderful fall palette. Like the gentle passing of a Summer love, into something deeper, richer and reflective. “When you think of Holland, we’re guessing spring-y images of tulip fields fill your head. Here’s a little secret, though: the Netherlands is just as lovely—if not lovelier—bathed in fall’s soft light. Go behind the scenes on our August catalog shoot as we tour the canal-dotted city of Amsterdam, stroll through stalks of edible allium flowers and of course, gaze at a windmill or two.”

 Anthropologie Embroidered Mesh Tee Anthropologie Vegan Leather Bomber

Embroidered Mesh Tee
It’s no secret: In addition to appearing infinitely delicate, the appeal of a sheer top is its layering prowess. We’d wear Meadow Rue’s mesh tee over a soft, neutral hue, like blush or beige.
Vegan Leather Bomber
Equal parts sophisticated and utilitarian, Hei Hei designs come to you well traveled, yet still fresh. As cooler weather approaches, we’re reaching for a jacket that is as stylish as it is practical. We love this vegan leather bomber with a snap collar detail and openwork detail.

Anthropologie Remy Maxi Skirt Anthropologie Lorna Silk Maxi Dress Anthropologie Andaz Maxi Dress

Andaz Maxi Dress
Sure, plaid is ace for its laidback, early autumn appeal, but we love it even more when it takes on an unexpected shape, like this silky, ankle-skimming dress from HD in Paris.
Remy Maxi Skirt
With a bold ikat pattern and an easy, slip-on silhouette, this slinky skirt from San Francisco-based tastemakers Weston Wear pairs perfectly with a floppy hat and a hammock.
Lorna Silk Maxi Dress
There’s a story behind each print in designer Roopa Pemmaraju’s namesake fashion line: they are created by, and named for, renowned indigenous Australian artists and manufactured using environmentally friendly, fair-trade practices. For Roopa, creating her line, including this flowing, high-neck silk georgette maxi, is a celebration of cultural exchange, creative collaboration and sustainability.

Anthropologie Garden Days Skirt

Garden Days Skirt
The name “Maeve” references a purple flower, a Greek goddess and a famously beautiful Irish warrior queen. In light of these inspirations, it’s no surprise that the Maeve brand is both feminine and playful, a representation beauty and strength at once. Scattered with oversized blooms, this sunny skirt is short and sweet.
Anthropologie Patchwork Chevron Midi Dress Anthropologie Stripe Cardigan

Patchwork Chevron Midi Dress
Designer Tanvi Kedia describes the “hippie deluxe” aesthetic of her collection as the confluence of folklore, fantasy and non-conformist glamour, and this dress is no exception. We’d add bejeweled sandals for brunch, then switch to strappy heels for dinner.

Eclipsed Stripe Cardigan
When it comes to basics, we can’t get enough of easy, thoughtful pieces that go beyond the call of casual duty. This transitional cardi is a cut above your standard long sleeve layer. A hint of striped lining and an extended length make this piece a wardrobe go-to.

Anthropologie Meridian Dress

Meridian Midi Dress
Vertical stripes can do wonderful things for a figure. If you’re not convinced, Maeve’s column dress, complete with a cutout back, proves the point.

ANTHROPOLOGIE BEDDING
Anthropologie Bedding

Enmore Embroidered Duvet
Textural embroidery and tasseled corners give this screen-printed bedding a sophisticated look. Layered over crisp cotton sheets, it creates the perfect finishing touch.

Anthropologie Ponsonby

Ponsonby Quilt
Our hothouse quilts are a labor of love – after all, each one takes takes 72 hours, 60 hands, 13 different processes and countless colors to create. Case in point: this vibrant patchwork bedding.

Anthropology Meadow Dusk

Meadow Dusk Duvet
This duvet’s petal-soft hues and cooling jewel tones create a languid balance of color that anchors a room. We’re layering ours with embroidered sheets and shimmered pillows for a femme look.

Anthropology Kantha

Stitched Kantha Coverlet
Traditional kantha embroidery is created from a running stitch rendered by skilled Indian artisans. In fact, it’s considered to be a form of artistic expression – a personal diary of sorts – told by a single set of hands. Practiced for centuries, this time-honored technique finds its way into our living spaces with pieces like this silk coverlet.
