Reviews from New York Fashion Week

A model walks the runway at the Calvin Klein fashion show during New York Fashion Week.


Metro’s style reporters Kenya Hunt and Tina Chadha took in the
scene this week at New York Fashion Week. Which looks did they love?
Find out below:

1. Calvin Klein

Francisco Costa celebrated femininity and sensuality with lingerie-like dresses in tulle and silk. They came in various styles — some more ethereal with low v-necks, sheer trims and breezy pleated panels, while others were slightly more structured with bustier detailing. His masculine, boxy coats had a soft touch. Although the dresses stole the show, other highlights included delicate sheer tops worn over pretty bras and swinging palazzo pants.  – Tina Chadha

2. Marc Jacobs

Does he have what it takes to replace John Galliano — fashion’s disgraced, yet ultimate performer — at Christian Dior? Judging by the elaborate production he staged for his spring collection, Jacobs has more than enough flair to advance the fabled couture house in an interesting way. After all, this is the man who brings the drama of Paris to New York (land of the clinical runway show in a black box) season after season. Now, about the clothes. They featured one key new element that is likely to bring the kinds of change that will trickle down to your nearest H&M or Zara: The ’20s-flavored dropped waist. It’s a look that hasn’t been explored in years and feels like a natural, easy-to-wear extension of the palazzo pants that have dominated this season. – Kenya Hunt
