Spring Already!

Spring is in the air … at least in New York, I guess. While it feels about fifty light years away, designers have already turned their gaze to next year and fairer temperatures. Fashion Week has passed us now, but I’ve really enjoyed checking out all of the shows online as well as via the podcasts.

I am absolutely nuts about Oscar de la Renta. He designs the most amazing collections, and nobody cuts a dress the way he does. He can dress a woman from cradle to the grave. His clothes are timeless and ageless. And I am going nuts over the runway set — how much more fun can you get?
I really love the Asian influence of Tibi’s spring collection. While there was a lot of hip-heavy designs, the color and fabrics of these above are my favorites. Especially the gorgeous tassels, too!
And Monique L’Huillier will always have a soft spot in my heart. I wore one of her dresses to my wedding, and I am just in love with what she creates. The seagrass runway is to die for; don’t the colors just look amazing against that neutral background?
