Prabal Gurung's collection was absolutely eye-popping and provocative. It was kind of Katy Perry gone dominatrix, heavy on the purples, latex, peek-a-boo, and prints that had a Rorschach ink-blot mirrored look.
Alexander Wang used long zippers to reign in his flouncy yet relaxed looks. Try using this move with a zipper-shaped path in your landscape.
Derek Lam balanced structure with flounce, and a lot of gray, yellow and white.
At Marc Jacobs, unexpected textures like croc patterns and futuristic iridescent, translucent fabrics added drama to his ensembles. The effect was much like the way these arcylic chairs, soft pillows, and all this glass work in this room.
My favorite show, Zac Posen, was probably not the most avant-garde, but it showed such a clear understanding of craft, history, a woman's body and hints of restrained Art Deco flair. His silhouettes perfectly balanced structure and flounce, and added just the right amount of detail. I'm sure the celebrity stylists are in a frenzy trying to score his dresses for awards season.
