New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 Hits and Misses: Part 1 (Forum Buzz)

New York Fashion Week is well underway and forum members are busy sharing their no-holds-barred commentary. They gushed about their favorites, of course, and when it came to their least liked? Styling missteps (rather than bad design) were the main culprit. Here are the collections that left the deepest impressions thus far.

The Hits: Jason Wu, Tess Giberson, Rag & Bone. Images via IMAXtree.

THE HITS:

Jason Wu

“I have to say I am very enamored by this collection. While it may not be fully realized in terms of inspiration and creativity, it is sophisticated, elegant and very well made. I love the fact that some of the outfits are completely androgynous – which seems to be a new territory for Wu.” [dodencebt]

“Possibly one of his best? I'm really a sucker for big outerwear over elegant day or eveningwear. Love the colors.” [Mr-Dale]

“The colors are absolutely sensational. I love how even the lighter colors are rich and lush. It's a bit overboard on the velvet (reminding me a lot of Ralph Lauren), but there are a lot of sophisticated looks here.” [Moofins]

Tess Giberson

“Oh my goodness, yes!! This is so urban and cool in a rather relaxed and unique way that we haven't seen. She's on a roll lately.” [HeatherAnne]

“There are so many pieces in this collection that are begging to be worn. Puffy coats aside, love it!” [Moofins]

“I'm so happy!! LOVE THIS. I have to own one of the tree-print items. The knits, too, are sumptuous!” [Not Plain Jane]


Rag & Bone

“Those kind of satin bomber-like jackets… have to be my favorite thing about this. It's a major step up from last season and it's true to what they do well, which is that cool, urban, wearable look.” [LagerfeldBoy]

“The shoes and bags are sooo to die for! I love this collection, even the leggings are growing on me.” [gossiping]

“I really like the splotchy prints, the Donegal tweeds, and the thin layering pieces – the sheer leggings and undershirts.” [Not Plain Jane]
