Today was the day! Alexander Wang presented the collection he designed in collaboration with H&M tonight at the Fort Washington Avenue Armory. After waiting for what seemed like forever, Wang finally offered up his much-hyped collection for our very eyes to feast on. Peel those peepers back and take note: Strappy scuba dresses, thick gray pullover sweatshirts, mesh-paneled leggings, cropped bra-tops, leather joggers, and parkas—all replete with bold WANG branding, will be ours come November 6, 2014. Missed the show? Watch it here.

Knots, dots, and latex reigned supreme at the Marc by Marc Jacobs spring 2015 show. An excitement of fabrics and textures including fetish gear, bandeau tops, and occult geometry on shirt-dresses. MBMJ’s BMX ninja girls rocked twisted topknots, inspired by Björk (video below). This girl-gang makes me want to rave my little heart out in pink satin and rubber pants.

Bearing bare skin at New York Fashion Week is almost unheard of. However, Marc Jacobs is unceasingly ahead of the curve. His spring 2015 show featured the buff faces of several very gorgeous models, that and some seriously shaggy wigs. François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS, was on hand backstage executing Marc’s vision for his latest collection. “The look for the show features no makeup – we only applied moisturizer. With Marc we always take it to the extreme, we’ve done bold looks in the past, but this season we wanted to make a statement by not applying anything.” It was a statement indeed.
Dare to go bare? Below are the three products used by François Nars, who kept the look super simple by using NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream Stick Concealer on the models’ faces, and Rosebud Salve on the lips. This is a look anyone can do!

There was no actual prize for “winning” New York Fashion Week this season, but if there were, it would surely be awarded to Josep Font, creative director of Delpozo. The luxury prêt-à-couture fashion brand delivered an outstanding collection of fairytale gowns, fantastical creations, and sculptural shapes. Referencing the art of Josef Albers, the Madrid-based designer revisited sportswear, adding extreme proportions and voluminous structure. Delpozo’s chiffon separates dazzled with crackled vinyl pieces while embroidered tulle dresses floated with the delicacy of angels breath.

Unusual, but true, Alexander Wang was inspired by sneakers for his spring 2015 women’s wear collection. “They’re such an infatuation of my generation. But I wanted to reinterpret and manipulate the ideas and mix them with the cutting of Madame Grès and Fortuny.” Do we have Balenciaga to thank for Wang’s improvement on his namesake line? As the creative director of the couture house, his second home has become Paris, no doubt acquiring brand new sleek styles. But beyond his gorgeous spring colors, Wang delivered sci-fi and sport-tech vibes, including intricate designs and velcro cut-out shoes.
