Streets and heels covered in slush aside, the fall RTW collections were awesome. I’m feeling cozy and comfortable just dreaming about all the oversized chunky knits spotted on the runways this week.
Tess Giberson- A great selection of puffer coats (smart winter gear), open knits, some digital prints, mini skirts and oversized sweaters.
Rag & Bone- loose cropped pants, hues of maroon, oversized blazers and a few spontaneous appearances of bright shades like red and orange.
Nicole Miller- bold. Enter a whirlwind of fur, dark hues and an appeal to a warrior, independent and strong woman who just goes with it.
Jason Wu- Let’s just say that owning a coat from the collection would be incentive enough to leave your apartment in a snow storm. Yeah, I think that covers it.
Dion Lee- Cozy meets sexy. Does that make sense? There were some skin-baring cutout dresses juxtaposed with some chunky oversized knits. It works.
Peter Som– a feisty leopard print is always welcomed. Any time of year. Bright florals, leather and cool blues with serious peplum…yes, please.
Tibi– again, some serious oversized coats (’tis the season!), lots of black and white, and some scattered blue pastels. Lots of easy to wear separates that can definitely be of great use in our wardrobes…
Altuzarra- a few structured looks, such as coats and dresses made an appearance, unlike the abundance of loose-fitting collections seen on the runways. There were also some nice color contrasts with grays and brights that really worked.
Creatures of Comfort– the name says it all. Loose knits, blazers and pants. Basically, everything you would need to bundle up on a cozy and snowy afternoon. With a hot chocolate
wine in hand.
Charlotte Ronson- dark, sexy, romantic pieces. Everything was easy to wear and pair. The collection boasted a few long lace dresses that we can definitely use for a boho kind of day.
M Missoni- rich, bold, marbled textures with some brights and tartan were found throughout the collection. Beanies and arm warmers were on the scene too–some very much appreciated accessories when combatting the polar vortex.
