Anna Sui Fall 2010

The middle of last month marked the beginning of the Fall 2010 Fashion season in New York.

All of the Fashion insiders, buyers, writers, bloggers, celebrities, stylists, writers,  and magazine editors descend upon New York to attend dozens of shows and parties produced by all of the fashion designers that launch their collections in  New York.  After New York, the fashion flock move to  London, Milan and then Paris. Since there are so many shows and trends to report, I have decided to make separate posts for each city, and offer you my picks for the most important jewelry shown on the runways. I utilize as my main source for pictures and information. Definitely go there to see each designers collection in full including videos and details shots on most.

Overall, there was not as much jewelry shown on the designers runways in New York as in seasons past. I really had to seek out the shows that had it, and what I found I loved!  As for the clothing there seem to be 2 distinct trends happening, retro feminism, and cleaned up modernism. The accessories were very minimal, but as the clothes are more simple, they become a strong back drop for amazing jewelry and other accessories.

The two designers that did show jewelry with many of their looks were Ralph Lauren and Anna Sui. Both designers showed collections that had a bohemian vibe and the jewelry definitely matched that mood. Anna Sui is not as well-known as the big brands, but she has an amazing sense of style and always presents incredible prints in unexpected ways.  (see photos above)

My favorite presentation was Vera Wang. Most of the designs were in black but she utilized feathers, sequins and many other textures within her designs to bring them to life on the runway. Many of her models simply had a pile of pearls thrown effortlessly around the neck adding a new dimension to many of her looks. I LOVED IT! There were several other models wearing layers of large glittery jewel encrusted glittery fire-balls, which was another smart look.

Badgley Mischka is best known for their evening wear, and they recently launched a jewelry collection several seasons ago. They were one of the few designers that showed statement necklaces with their evening wear on the runway. I especially liked the necklaces that cascade from the neck down the chest.

Something new and different came from Michael Kors. He reinterpreted an adorned belt as a collar or necklace. Could this spark a new trend or fad?

Lets wait and see. More to come from London, Milan and Paris.
