New York Fashion Week: J. Mendel Spring 2001

Sighhhh… When the inspiration is prima ballerina ( Earlier this summer, Gilles designed the costumes for the New York City Ballet’s production of Call Me Ben; then he shot his Resort lookbook in the dance studio) you know the collection will be light, ethereal, and down right feminine.  The collection was made up of pale silk chiffon and jersey with a bright pop of orange found in the Christian Louboutin shoes and lipstick.  A few of my favorite looks below:

New York Fashion Week: Ralph Lauren Spring 2011

Ralph Lauren once again drew inspiration from out West and presented a beautiful collection in cool whites, blues, pinks, and tans.  Statement blouses and jackets were seen throughout the collection ( along with amazing silver belts and blanket bags).  He remains one of my favorite designers for his classic and timeless design. A few of my favorite looks below:

Above: All of these slightly more casual looks are perfect for day.  From left to right:

1.  I would wear this outfit in its entirety.  The jacket is a must.

2.  I a loving the breezy movement of the top and pants paired with a heavier belt and blazer.

3.  This dress is perfect with a tough belt and broken in brown biker boots.

4.  I can’t get enough of his billowing pieces and this white dress with suede belt is a perfect example.

Above:  I own many dresses from his previous collections and still wear them all.  His timeless cuts and fabrics make them wonderful investment pieces.  The hand beading on looks one and two is amazing.  The skirt paired with the flannel shirt and suede belt is a fantastic combination.  The soft pink dress is totally me ( in cut, color, and fabric). LOVE IT!
