Lacoste

The setting of the Lacoste's show was like in the forest or woods. Models rocked thick headbands and straw-brimmed hats for a total African safari look. Wind machines blew and background colors changed. The second set showed off more color with off the shoulder one-piece hot pants on girls, and the third and final set was more of an 80s look, with black and white patterns and color blocking.




Verrier

With butterfly and fish appliqués, stones, ribbons and crystals, Verrier mixed beauty, whimsy and a great imagination.




Alexander Wang

Models paraded down the elaborately lit runway to the hypnotic beats of Missy Elliot and Jay-Z, as the audience held sight of Wang's signature separates, minis, and pastel jackets.




Catherine Holstein

Catherine palette included cream-colored pieces, gorgeous blues and an amazing yellow lacy jumpsuit. Holstein showed bubble skirts and longer tiered skirts, but the talk of the show was the embellished tiling ("sparked by video game pixilation," Holstein said) in a variety of different colors.




Elise Overland


Elise Overland showed a collection that was true to her style, with bold silvers and bright whites paired with cropped jackets and scarves that draped the head. John Lennon-esque 60s glasses in pink and blue framed faces of the models. Cropped pants and sequined tops were not to be missed.




Karen Walker

Karen Walker put a twist on tradition, blazers were blatantly oversized, button-ups were pleated at the hems, and shorts were full, even pajama-esque. There was no spring floral, instead spider web and wicker prints; even a leopard print was abstract, cartoonish, and apricot or mint colored.

Models strutted with oversized dresses, white Keds with a black cap-toe messily painted on, and Walker's eyewear collection, an array of colored and clear lenses and frames in bold shapes - but the collection would have been stronger had there been a clearer direction.




Charlotte Ronson

Charlotte showed a lot of denim looks paired with girly, flowery pieces, and the majority of the outfits were paired with sheer mid-calf socks and her famous wedge shoes.




Andy & Debb

Korean designers Seokwon Andy Kim and Wonjeong Debbie Yoon were inspired by sweetness this season. Milky pastels dominated with cherry, banana, kiwi, mint, chocolate and vanilla comprising the collection. Bubble hems, organza frosting-like folds and pleats, creamy colors, beaded sprinkles and fluff and puff enhanced the dessert.




Abaeté

Laura Poretzky continues to fuse femininity and prep in a delightful way. Inspired by the dichotomy of a women's logic - the things you do for reason and the things you do from the heart - Poretzky delivered the perfect impulsive jaunt. Colors were derived from the flowing spirit of summers spent in the South of France with tranquil blues, pink sunsets and yellow sunrise. Bows served to convey a sense of innocence, best seen in a sexy one shoulder swim suit.



Obedient Sons and Daughters

Christina and Swaim Hutson put out a collection where organic knits, stripes, and floral prints dominated the runway. A pair of suits had jacket's appliquéd with what looked like children's writing: "I may be, but I'm not really sure."




Vena Cava

Lisa Mayock & Sophie Buhai of Vena Cava brought the 70s occult phenom of Egyptomania to the forefront with their sexy collection of separates, cocktail dresses and eveningwear. Mayock called it "a little bit of Egypt, a little bit of sportswear." Egyptian inspired prints and beaded collars added an edge to the chic cocktail dresses and gowns. The collection was heavy on hardware, like gunmetal lace t-shirts and appliquéd cocktail dresses.
