Victoria Beckham S/S11

The collection, presented in an Upper East Side townhouse, is never groundbreaking, but Beckham's hands are all over it. Her past collections were often criticized for being reinterpretations of newly resurfaced designer Roland Mouret, but this season, a more relaxed silhouette took the spotlight in a number of unique and charming fabrics.

Siki Im S/S 2011

For his Spring/Summer 2011, Siki Im looks to feelings of isolation and detachment juxtaposed against an urban terrain where integration into mainstream culture causes friction and the possibility of new realities and identities. Many of the deconstructed pieces in this collection are reassembled as innovative, fashion-forward reflections on the young male’s quest for individuality while maintaining his group identity.

Michael Angel S/S 2011

What did work in this collection was Angel’s experimentation with texture. Latex layered over printed sarong skirts and men's midriff-baring collared tops nicely highlighted how a variety of textures and shapes can give a dramatic effect on the runway. However, the redundancy of Angel’s masculine shirts flattened what could have been an effective marriage of the masculine and the feminine.

Rebecca Minkoff S/S 2011

Posen had three muses for his collection: a sportswear-clad brunette, a blonde who adores ruffles and probably cats, and a glamour-puss redhead. The various inspirations translated into a collection that mixed frilly party frocks, cartoonish tees, and colorful printed looks with staple black trousers, fitted cropped jackets, and flattering denim skirts.

Altuzarra S/S 2011

This season, stripes of python and leather were worked into a palette of white and navy geometric cut duchesse satin. Joseph Altuzarra's neo-goth aesthetic did not completely disappear, but it was injected with retro futurism (and more satin than we have seen on the runways in a long time).

Textural gowns and cocktail looks were finished with intricate crystal embellishments so striking they reminded me of why one could easily spend hours at the brand’s boutique or showroom - the pieces are so subtly intricate, you’re likely to find something new to appreciate every time you look at them.

While Fashion’s Night Out may have been conceived as a fun event to boost the fashion industry, this year seemed to be even more of circus than last year. Dressed in cocktail dresses and high-high heels, most of the women could barely walk in their over-done ensembles - let alone shop.
