NYFW, Day 2 (FW13)

Especially in fashion, the show must go on!

Today's snowy, treacherous conditions didn't put a stop to fashion, so here are our favorites from day two:

Rag & Bone

While it opened on darker colors, the collection went on to reveal beautiful, vibrant orange, blue and berry. Marcus Wainwright and David Neville were inspired by aviation, specifically the long-ago tradition of dressing up to fly. There are some cozy sweater looks, but blazers and jackets were the stars of the show. And they were executed in plaid and tweed, which added to the dressed-up feel. Make no mistake, however. This is a colorful, playful collection that takes the best of what that era brought and are re-imagined into modern silhouettes, which includes boxy coats and short hemlines. 

Gregory Parkinson

Romantic and ethereal or spunky and colorful can describe previous Gregory Parkinson collections. This time around it was sort of a mix of both. Tiers and lace called to the romantic side, and the dark colors gave it that edge. Parkinson explained, "I consider myself a beachy, resort designer, and I asked myself how do I transition to a fall collection." He came up with a solution that felt different enough from past collection but still played up some familiar features.

Lyn Devon

Accessorized with loafers and heavy on the short hems, this collection felt like the perfect wardrobe for the modern, young woman. The collection was inspired by upstate New York, where she is looking to purchase property, and has a polished feel. It was just a very wearable, versatile collection that would work just as well in the country as in the city.
