J. MENDEL S/S 2010

J. Mendel is always one of the best shows with a who’s who of the fashion crowd in attendance. Thankfully, Gilles Mendel opted for a presentation this season because his clothes are always best appreciated up close. They’re tremendously labored over with almost couture-like precision, and this season was especially noteworthy because the designer – best known for fur and long gowns – went out of his comfort zone.

DONNA KARAN S/S 2010

Donna Karan has a reputation for being reliable. Not necessarily a negative thing, the design showed a fantastic collection of wearable separates and fluid dresses for Spring 2010.  Inspired by the power of the elements, the models looked permanently windswept and effortlessly chic. The designer managed to capture the movement of the clothing while not abandoning her roots in tailoring.

THE VMA AFTERPARTY

Lady Gaga arrived at the Interscope Records VMA afterparty at Avenue in a full wedding dress. The VMA winner for "Best New Artist" and dear friend of the Fashion Spot took off the veil that covered her face and threw it to fans as she joined her friend and long time supporter, Perez Hilton.  She was joined by her old schoolmate Nicky Hilton plus Diddy, Akon, Keri Hilson, Kim Kardashian, Polow Da Don and Soulja Boy Tell'em, who got cozy with Teyana Taylor.

THAKOON S/S 2010

This past season has been quite the whirlwind for designer Thakoon Panichgul. His wares have graced the frame of First Lady Michelle Obama, he had a cameo in the cult fashion film The September Issue, and every Upper East Side socialite is clamoring to get his latest designs.  His Spring collection was the optimal mix of innovative design and classic Thakoon wearability. Appeasing print dresses were shown alongside Japanese inspired kimono cuts and skin-tight pants were paired with collarless structured jackets.

CARLOS MIELE S/S 2010

A hint of Carnivale swept New York with Carlos Miele’s Spring 2010 collection. While the designer integrated darker colors and separates with his colorful chiffon numbers, notes of his native Brazil were all over this season’s showing. Noting that black is the color selling most these days, the designer worked to make his label more customer (and retailer) friendly.

MARC JACOBS S/S 2010

An air of performance was in the air for Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2010 collection. The models - who were the biggest and best as usual - looked as if they had just finished a performance; hair swept back and faces covered in powder. "If last season was a trip back in time to the eighties," said the designer, "this was a trip to the theater, the ballet, the opera."

ERIN FETHERSTON S/S 2010

Inspired by a childhood trip to Japan, Erin Fetherston’s Spring 2010 collection is filled with cherry blossoms, images of free roaming deer and the childhood interpretations of a foreign land.  Fetherston is known for her fantastic creations meant for those who want to live in another world while still looking good in this one. She recaptures her trip to Japan and visions of cherry blossoms falling from the sky, using these images gracefully by sprinkling them onto luxurious fabrications and draping them into grown up cocktail dresses.

DEREK LAM S/S 2010

Stars, stripes and red white and blue colors were the strong theme of Derek Lam’s Spring 2010 runway, but this patriotic American designer showed some serious style. Little printed shorts in floral prints mixed with tailored blouses in stripes offered a chic twist to this patriotic wardrobe. Lots of textures and contrasting colors were shown together looking perfectly and unexpectedly suited.

KAREN WALKER S/S 2010

After last season’s departure from the label’s signature girly aesthetic, Karen Walker’s girlish charm is back with a nautical seaside collection. Inspired by the sixties television show The Prisoner, Walker took the Edwardian beachfront to a modern and saleable place. Don’t think that it is all trenches and cardigans, though.

VPL S/S 2010

Victoria Bartlett notes anatomy as her inspiration for her Spring collection at VPL. Pairing sheer draped tunics and shirts with sequined appliqué and inky-black outerwear.  While this collection was textbook VPL with its bandage dresses and gauzy organza, the designer took a risk by integrating a print into the season for the first time since the label’s inception in 2003. Sticking with her inspiration, the print in question was in reality a blown up image of a skull.

RAG & BONE S/S 2010

David Neville and Marcus Wainwright went back to their roots this season by showing a collection that is quintessentially Rag & Bone. Despite the recent expansion of their brand, the two designers took the opportunity to show the wearable military-inspired separates they are known for. Most designers have been showing very light and airy pieces, but perhaps the designers kept the actual weather patterns in mind and showed layers and darker colors more suitable to the cooler weather.

Y3 S/S 2010

Yohji Yamamoto went football fanatical for this season’s Y3 collection. Following the last model down the runway, a net appeared along with soccer star Zinedine Zidane for a shot at a goal. As the perfect dessert to the World Cup-inspired collection, this production was set to demonstrate the designer’s real inspiration: the movement of a net after a goal.

THUY S/S 2010

DIANE VON FURSTENBURG S/S 2010

One can’t help but think Diane Von Furstenburg must lead a fabulously fantastical life after seeing one of her shows. Her models made their way down the runway with loosely flowing crimped hair, painted laurel headpieces in their hair, and sometimes they were even smiling! Von Furstenberg’s collection was a boho meets Greek mythology continuation of her Fall/Winter line with most every look featuring a loose drape, vibrant print, and multiple bursts of bold accessories.

ALEXANDER WANG S/S 2010

Wunderkind Alexander Wang’s show is always one of the hottest tickets in town, and seeing his collection this year, it’s little surprise why. The designer played with layering, mix-and-matched patterns, contrasting textures, and corset-like detailing for a high-fashion meets hipster take on classic, preppy sportswear.

LELA ROSE S/S 2010

Gorgeous colors, asymmetrical shoulders, and ruffles fit for a Park Avenue Princess...Lela Rose displayed a poetic collection inspired by paintings from Alex Katz for her Spring 2010 runway debut. Rose is known for her flirty cocktail dresses, and we would all be disappointed if she didn’t come up with new supplies for our spring wardrobe. However, she did take her collection one step further this season by offering more casual options than we’ve seen before.

VENEXIANA S/S 2010

I’ve never understood how it is that designers who sell well and create interesting, exciting collection can’t afford to show at the tents, and yet somehow smaller houses that don’t have loyal followings can.  I was left once again pondering this after leaving the Venexiana show, which consisted mostly of generic looking gowns many of which, with their abundance of ruffles, lace, and over-sized bows, looked straight out of the eighties.

GEORGES CHAKRA S/S 2010

The Georges Chakra show was a bit all over the place this season with a rainbow of colors and a parade of hard-to-pull-off silhouettes.  The bow details, sequin embellishments, and contrasting trims, and sheer overlay details made most of the looks un-wearable, and those that were wearable had an almost prom dress-like feel to them.
