NYFW Trends: Dress Like An Urban Warrior For Fall 2012

Fall 2012 is showing at NYFW, which means out with the breezy dresses, the delicate prints, the bright shoes and… in with the gloom (which we’re all for). If there’s one look that landed on every major runway, it’s probably what fashion glossies like to call the “urban warrior,” a modern, usually-but-not-always minimal tough girl look for the big city.

See Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler and more ahead. More »

NYFW:The Major Fall Color Trends For 2012

“Dark and moody” go the unsurprising fall color trends at NYFW: covering the runways were muted shades of midnight, plum, and the reigning combination of black and blue. …But just when you thought it was all very bleak and Fall-appropriate… bright, fuck-off, electric reds came down the runway.

Fashion Week's Biggest Trends: The 3 Kinds Of Prints That Will Rule Spring

Spring is the time for prints: florals, usually, and this past fashion week saw some weirdo forays into Hawaiian. However, three of the biggest trends to emerge for prints weren’t actually about flowers: we saw geometric patterns, plenty of ombre and animals. …I don’t mean leopard spots or tiger stripes, but prints of animals: birds, butterflies, even a few zebras.

Shopping Guide: Energize Your Wardrobe With Neon

Resort 2011 broadcast a lot of neon: the glowing accessories trend logged major runway time at Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler and more.

Designers Like Karl Lagerfeld & Donatella Versace Pose With Their Musical Muses

W Magazine did a story on the relationship between designers and their musical muses.
