Shine and colour on the runways

Designers at New York Fashion Week have foraged enough texture and nature-inspired embellishment (think leaves and bark) to keep the party going through fall.

Jill Stuart:

The oversized owl print that opened her show steered her in a more adult, sophisticated direction than the black-and-white rock princess that was her signature for several seasons. She gravitated toward navy, teal, orange and the shade of a fine red wine.

Prabal Gurung:

Model Karlie Kloss opened the show in a draped red party dress with one shoulder purposely placed down the arm. Her tied mini-gloves emphasised a rebellious spirit.

Rebecca Taylor:

She chose a palette of deep blue, magenta and wine for her flirty flower-print fabrics. The New Zealand-born designer used shearling, cashmere and alpaca to showcase her flouncy feminine look.

Alexander Wang:

His collection was full of the fur, leather and shine, but no look was obnoxiously ostentatious. There were mink-trimmed peacoats, gathered-at-the-ankle flight pants, oversized polar fleece vests and zippers on everything.

Vivienne Tam:

Tam opened with dark coloured pieces in tweed and wool. Turtleneck sweaters in navy blue and dark gray looked thick and inviting.

Marc Jacobs:

There were a lot of rubber trousers, cellophane shirts and fake fur. Plus a healthy dose of polka dots.
