NYFW F'W 2013 (Days 1 and 2)

NYFW has begun and designers are showing off their Fall/ Winter 2013 collections. Leather and fur will still be trends this upcoming season but you can expect to see a lot of other textures and fabrics such as suede and even satin.

My favorite collections so far have been Kate Spade (I loved her bright, girly and chic clothing!), Balmain, Jason Wu, and Charlotte Ronson!

Check out my favorites from those collections as well as looks from Cushnie et Ochs:

Kate Spade

Kate Spade used tons of bright colors to design her F'W 2013 collection. You can find leather gloves in red and pink (how fun is that??), and satchels and clutches in bright colors, animal prints, and metallics. Although her collection is girly and chic, a few looks have an androgynous feel to them as witnessed by the collared button down and the cropped printed pants with the leather jacket. Kate Spade has an amazing F'W collection, her use of color will definitely set her collection apart from the rest. 


Balmain has been at the forefront of the fashion world for years and this collection definitely was not a disappointment. Sheer blouses, cropped pants, belted jackets, and mesh tights all came together to form a collection that had the perfect amount of edginess and chicness which will probably endear this collection to many people as it has something for everyone.

Jason Wu

Ahh Jason Wu, since I first started following his career, he has yet to disappoint me with one of his collections. This collection had it all,from funky prints, peek-a-boo blouses, and flowy dresses to structured blazers and jackets. Mr. Wu did not stick to the common F'W color palette of black, brown, and gray. Like Kate Spade, he also used color, including red and a beautiful royal blue. This collection showcases his talent and gives insight into why he's a favorite of FLOTUS, Michelle Obama.

Charlotte Ronson

Charlotte Ronson's collection had me in complete awe! From the first look (which gave me a toned down Freddy Krueger feel) to the mesh shirt and prim leather skirt in the second, to the structured blazer and cropped pants in the combo there was literally something for everyone! If you value comfort over chicness, you can turn to her fashionable yet comfortable sweaters, daring fashionistas will love her leather minidresses, and even the most modest girl can find a piece they'll love in her very ladylike A-line dresses.

Cushnie et Ochs

Cushnie et Ochs delivered an amazing collection! The use of different shapes, some dresses/skirts were very fitted and structured while some were loose and simply flowed with the model that was showcasing them. Daring splits, bold prints, and sexy cutouts made every single piece of this collection a must have in ANY fashionista's closet!
