Today was my first day and the tents, and I kicked it off with one of my favorite shows, BCBG. Last season, Max and Lubov Azria showed black and white (which I wore for my fashion week Day 1 look). But for fall, it was all about soft neutrals and rich navy and burgundy. Yes, ladies, oxblood is still in for next year! Long layers gave a bohemian vibe and the beanies looked oh so warm.
Over at Timo Weiland, a similar color palette came down the runway, with the addition of olive green. Next it was on to Tadashi Shoji, who was inspired by Russian opulence. Translation? Lots of luxe velvet and lace with high necklines and long sleeves. I particularly liked the red dresses, which I immediately imagined for Kate Middleton. Finally, I popped into the Candela presentation and loved the edgy contrast of leather and tulle.
I ended the day with a meeting at Vente-Privee and just had to share their innovative shoe wall. Their team spray painted vintage shoes, securing them to the wall with push pins. Can you say genius DIY project? After a delicious dinner at Barbuto it was time to end a wonderful first day of fashion week.
