NYFW SS12 - Roundup #1

image

In case you didn’t know, it’s Super Bowl week ladies - that’s right. Fashion Week is upon us. And it’s pretty damn hard to work all day long when I’m trying to catch up with the shows. The picture above of Nicki Minaj, Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington at Carolina Herrera this morning represents what an anthropological wonder fashion week truly is. (For more on that see this Times article.) 

Before the heavy hitters…hit in the next few days (Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc, the J Crew show), here’s a throwdown of what I’ve liked. It’s not quite a review (expect that in the next few days). Nevertheless, here’s what’s inspired me so far: 

Is this our best virtual friend walking in Rebecca Minkoff today???  Yes. Yes it is the Man Repeller, walking in a show. Marking a HUGE moment that emphasizes the influence of bloggers right now.

Tracy Reese - This may be the one collection so far worth checking out the entire thing. Super impressed.

Jenny Packham - always does me right. Sweet and simple and uber feminine.

Donna Karan: Tribal to the max. Urban Outfitters is gonna copy the shit out of this.

image

Carolina Herrera: I would do ungodly things for that green collar. 

image

Zac Posen: His first show in a few seasons with inspiration driven straight out of the 1940s. Every silhouette in this collection is incredible - so feminine and glamorous. Easily my favorite so far.

Like I previously stated…

not much of a review. I guess I’m just feeling lazy. Well, no, if we’re being honest…nothing TERRIBLY awesome here…I’m holding my breath for my upcoming favorites and the weeks to come in Paris and such. Ah, fashion week.
