What it made us think of: Vera Wang
What we liked: Flowing, relaxed pieces that look both elegant and casual. Of course, this is Vera's aesthetic, and she did it very well this season. (Also, tutu skirts, cool necklaces, ruffled/rouched jackets)
What we didn't: Droopy jumpsuits, an out of context stone (somewhat Flinstone) dress.
Who: Peter Som
What it made us think of: Texture--must touch these clothes--and happiness (this designer is celebrating his new-found financial stability
What we liked: The bright colors, mixed patterns, flirty clothes and touchable textures
What we didn't: Some looks encouraged pants-less-ness. We just can't get behind that.
Who: Jason Wu
What it made us think of: Classic pieces gone lux
What we liked: Luscious materials, bold prints, expert tailoring
What we didn't: A mirrored runway seems like an invitation to look up girls skirts, but it did look kind of cool.
Who: Rebecca Taylor
What it made us think of: Tea Party attire with an edge
What we liked: Girly shapes mixed with structured pieces, polka dots, tiny florals, pleated shorts
What we didn't:Shorts that gave models camel toe, an intentional nip slip in such a ladylike show
Who: Jill Stuart
What it made us think of: Rocker chic
What we liked: Shoulders, studs, shiny things
What we didn't: Super tight, super short "dresses" that will have a hard time finding bodies to flatter in the real world (even among actresses).
