New York Fashion Week in full throttle

So far, fall collections continue last season’s love affair with longer hemlines, sheer fabrics and the ’70s.

The reviews

1 BCBG Max Azria
Turtlenecks will be coming back if Max and Lubov Azria have anything to do with it. They showed long, crepe dresses in navy, red, mocha and beige — all layered over white turtleneck bodysuits. There was a slight ’70s undercurrent, as the shapes felt a bit retro, but the details, such as color-blocking and tonal palette, looked completely modern. –Kenya Hunt/Metro

2 Richard Chai Love
What to do when you’re bound to an office dress code, but easily bored by conservative office wear? Richard Chai’s contemporary label Love indirectly solves that problem. His mix of wool and twill sportswear separates in charcoal, navy and moss are polished enough for the office conference room, but have an overall cool, unaffected edge that would prevent you from looking like another cog in a wheel. His fall collection showed off similar layering as we saw with spring — skirts worn over trousers, short worn over long. Only, this season looked more wearable than the last. –Kenya Hunt/Metro

3 Lyn Devon
Lyn Devon’s girl is on a world tour. “She has her luxury cashmere, her jersey, but then she’s picking up things on her travels, like this paisley shirt,” explained the designer. For fall, Devon focused on a relaxed drop-waist for pants and jackets and created shirts and skirts with longer hemlines. Then, she interjected bursts of colors (Yves Klein blue and mustard) and quirky prints. This idea of mixing luxury and utility came about from her own wanderlust. “I imagine traveling on the Oriental Express to Vienna, Budapest, Paris — I need to get the hell out of Dodge,” she laughed. It makes sense because this is definitely the collection you’d want in your travel bag. –Tina Chadha/Metro
