On my third day of NYFW, I began my day bright and early with a Mathieu Mirano Fall 2013 presentation. And though I have to admit, I’m not a morning person (<<understatement), I was really happy I made the effort to see this collection. Classic with a modern twist, Mirano’s third collection had me making wishlists as I was happily snapping away. Fox-fur coat with a sliver of unexpected mesh, luxe-looking sparkly pencil skirt, geometric patterns galore – it all felt fresh and exciting, without being forced. This young designer is definitely one to watch.
My second stop of the day was DL1961’s Fall 2013 show, where the good old jeans were transformed into drool-worthy objects of desire. Granted, my favourite pairs weren’t your regular skinnies, but still. Who knew that denim could be so haute? From quilted details and leather trims, to fun pops of colour, I loved it all. And knowing how comfy those babies are, I had no doubt that I’d be investing in another pair sooner rather than later.
I ended my day with one of my most highly-anticipated shows of the week – Reem Acra Fall 2013. I was really looking forward to seeing the Reem Acra extravagance in person, and I wasn’t disappointed. The sexy collection was inspired by Acra’s recent trip to Japan, and featured a classic palette of black, white, and red. And while the chic workwear pieces were both glam and versatile, the ones that got my heart thumping were Acra’s signature evening gowns – some delicately beaded and flowing, other sculpted and embellished. Katherine Heigl, who took in the show from the front row, was seen clapping cheerfully as the designer took her bow.
