What it made us think of: A day at the museum, from what you'd wear there to the paintings and sculptures themselves walking down the runway.
What we liked: painted prints, polka dots, frills,
What we didn't: Nothing.
Who: Christian Siriano
What it made us think of: What Christian Siriano would have made had he been attempting to play it safe on Project Runway. He would have probably still won, but not with the same flourish.
What we liked: Ruffles, ruffles and ruffles; sophisticated leather; stunning coats; metallics
What we didn't: The sheer, color-block pieces; the lack of fun prints; too much editing and toning down over all
Who: Elie Tahari
What it made us think of: Timelessness with a little sparkle and a subtle use of trends
What we liked: shoulder details, skirts, unfinished looking edges, metallics, knitwear
What we didn't: Nothing really
Who: Derek Lam
What it made us think of: The modern cowgirl out to rediscover the Wild West.
What we liked: knitwear, structured coats, that black long sleeve dress--it's eternal!
What we didn't: I'm not crazy about fringe and some of the more literal western references.
