THE HITS:

Narciso Rodriguez

“Now THIS is a collection! How truly fantastic. You get the feeling that these looks belong together, there isn’t anything I would eliminate. There is such a strong sense of focus, plus the color palette is amazing! I have no words—this is great!” [TianCouture]

“Yeah, this [is] wonderful. Beautiful colors as always, but also the various fabric combinations are delightful. And those elongating silhouettes are super chic! The last few seasons were only mediocre efforts for his standards, but this is great!” [Psylocke]

“I love how sexy this is. It doesn’t show much at all, but it knows exactly what to show. Say what you want about Narciso, but he certainly knows how to make a woman feel sensual and comfortable.” [StoneSkipper]

Michael Kors

“The classic fabrics mixed with fur, pops of gold, the slim ladylike silhouettes, the minimal gowns, the Annie Hall references – I love, love, love this. He’s had a good thing going on for several seasons now, and has the one redeeming collection of NYFW this time around for me, stay the course Kors.” [HeatherAnne]

“I guess what I really like about this is how timeless his work feels; you could literally swap this and his previous F/W show and they wouldn’t feel out of season, which means most of this will still look chic two to three years from now. As others have said, there are some experimental pieces here and there, but mostly it is luxury at its best.” [dodencebt]

“Warm, luxurious, chic, beautiful accessories, extremely wearable. I love everything.” [Morphe]

Marc Jacobs

“After that hideously under-designed Spring collection we finally get some real clothes. Honestly I am a sucker for themed shows and this ‘evil witch’ thing is right up my alley… Also those skunk furs were to die for if you ask me.” [dodencebt]

“I felt like I was watching the early 2000s Galliano for Dior show and I liked it.” [christian zh]

“Marc’s fall collections are usually quite impressive but there was an atmosphere to this one that lent it far more of a punch than anything he’s done in years. Simple tailoring, some great coats, beautiful dresses at the end and a dark vibe throughout that really impressed.” [Fiercification]
