New York Fashion Week might be winding down, but we are still digesting images of the gorgeous textures of Nanette Lepore’s collection, Anna Sui’s brilliantly blended era’s of the 40s and the 70s, the feathers of Marchesa’s embroidered gowns, Jason Wu’s reinvented suits and Michael Kors’ Fall line which reflects a new maturity with his posh patterns and relaxed styling. Plenty of designer clothes to dream over! Let’s not forget Rodarte’s “strongest collection of their career, capped off by five stunning finale gowns incorporating classic artwork from the “Star Wars” films. The sweeping silk charmeuse looks, made with the blessing of Disney and the films’ creator George Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson, avowed fans of the brand who have been spotted before at Rodarte shows, featured the most beloved characters of the epic story, Luke Skywalker, Yoda, C-3PO and R2-D2. Also translated onto silk, the Death Star and a beautiful landscape of the twin suns of Skywalker’s home planet Tatooine” (Moore). Can I just say, I love!
Autumn is upon us, with flooding sunshine and falling leaves and dropping temperatures. This is a favorite time of year because of the blast of color and treats of harvest, after all, who doesn’t love all shades orange or every apple recipe? As I moved summer lightweights to the back of my closet and woolen garments to the front, I made another adjustment, the shift from sandals to boots! Perhaps more than ever boots are everywhere, from the runway to the street, lace-up to zip-up, ankle height to over-the-knee, suede to shiny and in every hue. For this shoot, I dug up a favorite pair from last year and donned new favorites, but each one is a walkable boot–my main criteria. After all, we need to keep moving with all this brilliance around us! Joined by my kitty we danced about in the foliage for a brilliant afternoon.
