Narciso Rodriguez

“This is what I want to see when Narciso shows: beautiful minimalist design, great use of different fabrics and perfect execution. The shoes just make it even more charming.” [*ana*]

“Amazing AMAZING work, once again. Narciso is truly a talent. Incredible deployment of color, fabrics, and proportions, finished off with master class tailoring. Despite their laborious construction each look is effortless and alluring. MUCH needed breath of fresh air in what has been a grim week.” [VogueDisciple93]

“Minimalism at its best. He has captured the simplicity without being boring.” [yesitsdagny]


Proenza Schouler

“I love the armor-inspired last couple looks. Overall, it's an incredibly solid show.” [Moofins]

“The silhouettes here are brilliant. I'm still trying to wrap my head around what sort of fabric the pieces like the amber colored dresses are made out of, those six pieces were the standouts to me. I also loved the pieces with the bold hardware. While the metallic interwoven pieces I actually could have done without. Definitely one of the best collections this week.” [HeatherAnne]

“What makes this collection for me is the fact that it is incredibly wearable. There isn't a single look I see that I couldn't imagine being worn by a well dressed woman on the streets of New York/Paris/Tokyo/Hong Kong. Sometimes in the theatricality of fashion the fact that real people (most of whom don't have a team of personal stylists assisting them) have to actually wear the clothing is lost in the ether. This is very much rooted in reality and I think that the best of NYFW tends to be.” [Luxx]

Michael Kors

“Such a good collection. I've been loving all of his recent work, but I'm really happy that he went in more of a demure direction rather than giving us graphic sportswear, which would have been so obvious for Spring.” [Fiercification]

“Loved it… Michael Kors did a great job of fusing some vintage shapes and ideas with modern sensibilities. The end result: chic perfection. So understated, so sophisticated and very pretty.” [MyNameIs]

“Most of this looks so chic! Not anything groundbreaking, but that isn't what I expect from the brand anyway. But there are so many lovely pieces here and personally, I love the color palette!” [RedandNavy]
