NYFW 2012 Roundup: Casual

A.L.C. 

This collection is how I would love to dress every day. That is, until they brought out the paisley. That’s a print that needs to die, permanently.

Calla

The Calla collection is so dainty and pretty! I die for that shearling motorcycle jacket.

J. Crew

There was so much variety in this collection and every piece was amazing. I’m not the preppiest of people yet I would wear almost every look.

Jenni Kayne

Relaxed, cool and trendy, this collection just works for me so well.

Steven Alan

The menswear, the cut of the skirts just everything is so great about this collection.

The Lake and Stars

Though most of this collection is swimwear, it is still one of my favorites so far. I love the dark red, black and white color palette and I would wear every piece.

Inspired Buy: Jeremy Scott

Jeremy Scott’s nostalgic 90’s collection has gone viral. While his pieces are incredible and fantastical, they’re neither attainable nor affordable. So I took to the internet  (Etsy) for some Scott-inspired alternatives:


Bart Simpson Print Backless Sundress via No Slow Jams


Rainbow Furry Skirt via Trippy Creations


Rainbow Brite Boned Corset via Tayo Clothing


Rainbow Heart Vintage Levis via Kaleidoscope Eyes Vintage


Holographic Flare Disco Pants in Silver, Pink & Black via Dancing Tree Creations

Helmut Lang Fall 2012

The Colovos are speaking my language. This Helmut Lang collection is everything I hope for when fall fashion week begins. The leather, the hair, the knits, the asymmetric styling, the scarves & the white and red dyed fabric are all perfection. Plus, thigh high boots always win my heart.

Jeremy Scott Fall 2012

Ok, who let Jeremy Scott drop acid with Lisa Frank? Also, thank you mister Scott, for bringing my 90’s club kid premonitions to life through your insane collections. I can’t get over this one. I’m so stoked to see my smiley face and rainbow pony folders turned into clothing. Also allow me to segue into the handmade Alien Earrings  I sell that go oh so perfectly along with this fashion.

Custo Barcelona Fall 2012

My saving Grace. Custo Dalmau‘s collection is what I’ve been waiting for. On Facebook I’ve been making a list of all the trends that have been prominent–no, more than prominent–they’ve saturated the runways this season. But Custo Barcelona takes me on an entirely new adventure. The tribal vibe with a sexy and daring twist  just works for me. Not to mention those boots! Dead. Dalmau, I salute you.

Oscar De La Renta Fall 2012


image from: Style

Oscar de la Renta just barely gets a blog post dedicated to his collection. His pieces featured  granny knits, questionable colored fur, a lighter color palette and spring-esque patterns. But he won me over with the dress to the far right. I’m obsessed.  (Can you tell I have a thing for black & blue ball gowns?)

CreepInterlude

More future shop inspiration.

Steven Alan Fall 2012


image from: Style

Does it make me a hipster for loving the Steven Alan collection? While it may no be the most original thing on the runway, I love the menswear on women, the large midi skirts and the preppy prints.

Tadashi Shoji Fall 2012

Japanese native, Tadashi Shoji, is a wizard with lace. His collection was delicate, edgy and classic. This new designer is making a wonderful splash into the industry.
