#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Reed Krakoff Was A Perfect White Suit

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Reed Krakoff Was A Perfect White Suit

Reed Krakoff has only been showing for a few seasons now, but the Coach creative director is already refining his easy, effortless spin on wearable minimalism. Aside from some creative use of cellophane, his collection was all about neat lines, solids and a bit of bright colorblocking. However, this white suit is louche and effortless in all the right ways, which is to say it may be draped softly but it still cuts a clean line. One of those fantastic Boxer bags is the only embellishment it needs. More »

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rachel Comey Spring 2012 Was This Awesome Printed Dress

I’ll probably never be cool enough to wear a dress like this, but a girl can dream: behold the awesome, abstract shoreline print that came down the runway at Rachel Comey’s great show.

Since launching her eponymous line in 2010, Mandy Coon has already developed a reputation for dark, moody clothes to glower in the ranks beside goth favorites like Rick Owens and Ann Demuelemeester. For Spring 2012, however, she added bolts of bright, saturated color, like the season’s already-becoming-ubiquitous cobalt. Here, she takes her talents to a truly killer party dress. More »

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 Is Tough/Pretty

Last Friday, Rebecca Taylor showed a watery collection featuring dewy skin and slicked-back hair. Yes, there were sequins and metallics, but the whole thing was so soft and muted… a few of the final looks even had an echo of Rodarte’s wheatfields in lovely cloud prints. I know “wearable” sounds like faint praise but as I watched this look come down the runway, all I could think was, “How can I go home and do this immediately?” More »

#1 Crush: Our Favorite Look At Pamella Roland Spring 2012

Pamella Roland makes gorgeous, elegant dresses that are perfect for wearing to charity balls. Many are also suitable for slightly more quotidian types of fancy parties, if you’re the sort of person who likes to get really dolled up. Today’s Spring 2012 show contained a wide variety of lengths and colors, but I’m a sucker for a classic silhouette with a dramatic back, and this all-white stunner was just that. More »
