If you ever wanted to blend into your Nana’s basement wall or be all ninja in front of your shady uncle’s station wagon, this may be for you. Rodarte sent models down the runway with woodgrain (‘faux bois‘ if you wanna be all fancy-like) print ensembles for their Spring 2011 collection. Seriously, the only reason I would wear head to toe woodwork was if I wanted to get all stealth in the woods and get up close to nature and stuff. But with my luck, some angry chipmunk or aggressive woodpecker would probably try to peck or bite me, so ….NO, that would actually be a bad idea come to think of it. I have to admit I have a pair of Puma trainers that are wood grain with pink neon laces that I designed through Mongolian BBQ/Puma. Although, I have yet to wear them in the woods, whenever that will be! I’ll be sure to pack my mace.

Betsey Johnson always knows how to make fun clothes. Seriously, after trolling through each show online  at NY Fashion Week , Betsey Johnson was pretty much the only one that I would wear. She marches to her own tune- or shall I say bikes to her own tune (are those training wheels?)… Her collection was inspired by bicyclists, The Love Boat (I’m guessing) and her usual flowered frocks that are pretty timeless. This time some of her frocks came in a suit or playsuit of the same fabric. Matchy-Match! I love it! My favorite is the ‘sherbet’ tutu dress- it looks so yummy! I like how Betsey maintains here signature girly look with timeless silhouettes and colorful fabrics. That’s the way Spring should bloom!

Goodness Gracious! These gowns are to die for … Seriously, Marchesa needs to pack up and move to Paris because that is where they belong- amongst the incredible haute couture houses of our time. Let’s start with the stunning shoulder/neck jewelry on some of the dresses. I love love love the glitz and glamour it lends that only the 1930s did so well ( I also love jewelry built into a dress). Each gown’s hue is so delicate and reminiscent of an elegant ballerina ( we also saw that at Dennis Bosso– definitely the movie  Black Swan is in the air). I’m especially digging the nude and lace gown- some of these gowns remind me of Dior and John Galliano’s couture line over the past couple seasons and also Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture lines from several seasons ago. Identical silhouettes and soft, feminine fabrics- but always flattering on any woman.Anyone who brings on the glamour is A-ok in my book! Yay, Marchesa!!

Jeremy Scott is probably the most “mainstream” avant guard you’ll get at New York’s Fashion Week. I really like him for that and I enjoyed his last collection, as well. Jeremy took those icky, but almost iconic plastic bags and cleverly turned them around into chic tank tops and dresses. I love how he changed up the “thank you” bags. I threw in one for the boysssss- “No sale is ever Final” written in blood…. awesome. Lady Gaga should have thought about this meat dress (photo 4)- at least she could have worn this for more than an hour and no e. coli- Yay!

And the bride for the straightjacket… perfect for THIS reality show. Overall, Yay! for Jeremy!!

New York designer Dennis Basso used  ballerina colors for one of the most simple, yet beautiful collections at New York’s Fashion Week. Not many collections stood out since they were mostly a regurgitation of the 1970s, but this collection did because it was actually pretty. I love the fur accents and pale nudes and creams… maybe the movie Black Swan had an effect? Either way, it was a refreshing break from all the FUG  seventies-wear plaguing New York Fashion Week.
