A good start

A week of fashion kicked off Friday in NYC . At least the weather was decent this weekend (for Feb). Here's some stuff from my fave collections so far I'd like to be rocking (or inpired by) this fall:

VPL: This label always impresses me with their innovative designs. The hairy shrug thing was completely left field for them but I love it nonetheless. I'm a sucker for spandex & asymmetry so I'm dying seeing it together in all it's wackiness. That necklace piece is radical beyond words.

Yigal Azrouƫl: Yigal's fall collection had a dark romantic vibe about it: very Misshapes. From elegant simplicity (left) to perfectly layered cold-weather looks, he had something for every affair.

Vena Cava: The prints and zipper details are what stood out to me in this collection (that first dress is so wearable and perfect). I enjoyed the holographic sequins although I wish something more was done with it.

ThreeAsFour: It sounds like the presentation was strange (models pruning bonsai trees to Icelandic music) but I expect that from these guys. The angular looks were inspired by crystals, and these sheer leggings are already on my DIY to-do list.

Pretty much all of those are AMAZING. Especially the first and last...I'm a sucker fore asymmetry and sheer fabrics.
