Best of the Big Apple

I've stated before that I'm not a huge fan of the NY fashion week, somehow I've always thought that Europe has more variety to offer. However, there are now more players on the table and stakes are getting higher; some of these "newcomers" have even caught my critical eye. There is no denying that Alexander Wang, the wonder boy of fashion, has already achieved a major role in the world's fashion scene. At a young age, he has managed to create something that makes the hardcore fashionistas hearts beat faster every time a new collection hits the runway. In Alexander's footsteps, more and more formerly unknown designers are lifting their heads up and putting it all out there. They have even made me buzz about the NY fashion week, so something positive is happening in NY.

Even though the spring is not here yet (temperature this morning was -7 Celcius), I'm already drooling over the fall fashion, as usual. I decided to pick up the top looks that I liked on the NY fall/winter 09/10 runway; something I could accept in my wardrobe anytime of the year, may it rain or shine. All images are from, edited by me.

1. Alexander Wang hit the jackpot again! The main thing I love about this collection is that it's so wearable and I can already see so myself doing some DIY action with a pair of old leggings. My closet withholds very similar pieces already, so these images are rather inspiring.

2. Ohne Titel is a new very good friend of mine: leather, layering, black color, odd cuts, broken knees, zips, whats not to love?

3. I don't think it's possible to ever get over the Rodarte knit tights that were introduced last spring. I must say though, that the new fall/winter collection looks really promising as well, although these were the only wearable pieces I could think of. Loving the OTK boots and knits mixed with leather. Makes me want to get some thread and start knitting my own pieces.

4. Temperley London is completely street ready with it's stud and zip detailing. Perhaps I'm going to have to get myself a pair of studded ankle cuffs. Ebay, here I come...

5. Is it just me or did Marc Jacobs just put us in a time machine and send us back to the 80's? Well, it's one of my favorite decades, so this trip was a pleasant one. Shoulder pads, sharp cuts, neon glow and Flock of Seagulls hair have all got a 21st century update when Marc's models strutted down the runway. I wish it was fall already...

What are your favourite picks?
