Standouts: Marc Jacobs for modern clothes with little vintage inspiration; Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein for floaty shapes and standout white clothes; Ralph Lauren for romantic dresses, a French sailor look, shirting fabrics in solids and stripes; Michael Kors' ruffles, and Donna Karan's Empire and flyaway back jersey dresses, which looked new.
Standouts: Calvin Klein, "an incredibly important show for New York and really pivotal for Francisco Costa. It was beautifully designed and had a lightness. It was so sophisticated, it rivals a European collection." He also praised the draping at Doo.Ri; beautiful color palette at Vera Wang; J. Mendel's couture-inspired collection; Ralph Lauren's blue-and-white striped shirting and "real American sensibility," and Donna Karan for "one of the prettiest collections she's done in years."
Other strong collections: Marc Jacobs' flyaway jacket and Diane von Furstenberg's trapeze silhouette, which seemed "fresh. The soigné look is going to be fabulous for the accessory business," she said.
