Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti -

LIP SMACKERS Alberta Ferretti’s Philosophy collection was sugary and fun. With lip motifs shown throughout in iridescent printed chiffon and appliqué shapes, the garments had pop and femininity. Sheer trims at hems, contrast plackets and chiffon set with colored panels were eye-catching details, and this season's key racer-back tops brought attention to the shoulders. Boyish athletic pieces like silk running shorts ...

Mulberry -

WORLD OF WHIMSY Teen angst is usually expressed in a dark manner, but Mulberry creative director Emma Hill put her own bittersweet spin on her Junior-friendly Spring collection, citing Sofia Coppola's lovely yet haunting film "The Virgin Suicides", about beautiful suburban sisters in 1970s, as this season's source of inspiration. A touch of fantasy permeated the collection, as models strutted around ...

Marc by Marc Jacobs -

PRINTS ON PARADE Always playful and perfectly on trend, Marc Jacobs played directly to his younger audience in his little sister line. This Spring's girl was a mix between global roamer and vintage sweetheart, with a little bit of 80s flair thrown in. Graphic appeal was high, with this season's important African-inspired prints mixing — somehow effortlessly — with 1940s polka ...

Vera Wang -

QUIET ELEGANCE Vera Wang’s always intelligent collection delivered easy pieces in luxe fabrics. Focusing more on separates than usual, Wang presented wearable looks with finesse. A languid black silk jumpsuit topped by a navy vest created a long and lean silhouette, seemingly without even touching the body – the anti-body-con. Layers of black and white tulle formed a nebulous shape for ...

Toni Maticevski -

BEAUTIFUL DISASTER Before it arrived on the runway, Toni Maticevski’s collection seemed like it must have been rode hard, put away wet, run over by a few trucks, and salvaged out of a dumpster filled with paint, ink, and dirt.  However, under the masterful eye of the couture-obsessed Australian designer, these worn and weathered materials came together in an artistic yet ...

Zero + Maria Cornejo -

NEO MINIMAL  Three seasons ago designer Maria Cornejo began introducing a few men's looks into her  women's collection. S/S 10 was the strongest statement yet, with beautiful pieces that put fabric and shape at the forefront. The restrained palette of black and navy let the fabrics and silhouettes speak for themselves. Lustrous cotton sateen shirts played nicely with cropped, loose-fitting ...

Marc by Marc Jacobs -

TEENAGE ANGST  For Marc by Marc Jacobs, the designer seemed to pay homage to the recently departed master of teenage angst movies, John Hughes. The collection was an early 80s smorgasbord of print and pattern, as well as primary colors and "highlighter hues." Many of the woven shirts and knits featured "Cosby prints," hinting at the comedian's quirky sweaters from his ...
