Bold shoulders were the buzz at Jonathan Saunders. His signature color-blocking works well with these cocoon coats and bustier dresses. Aren't the shoes fabulous? The complete collection makes me feel like a pretty Jetson. Saunders continues to be fashion forward, not fashion victim.Lela Rose was yet another runway filled with black, blue and mustard hues. I smell a trend in New York. Pretty clothing for the office abounded, and that really seems like the safest bet for designers with the economy in the tank. Even her cocktail dresses were pretty yet easy to wear over and over.
Reem Acra makes fabulous gowns. The only misstep in this presentation is an over-abundance of heavy jewelry. A big necklace works with a simple gown, but I have no idea why the stylist put necklaces on dresses with interesting necklines. That aside, expect to see some of these gowns on the red carpet very soon. Maybe even Sunday soon.
