The band-aids are for my heart because the clothes are killing it

Day two has almost wrapped and our big takeaway is that the ’90s are still relevant and therefore so are belly shirts. Not to be outshone, a new midsection – the drop-waist – is trending, too.

Show: Peter Som

Vibe: Pretty clothes for a chill-ass girl.

Important notes: Peter Som’s striped overcoat is the refined version of a hemp-thread stoner hoodie, in a really good way. It’s clearly a coat, and yet somehow I want to bring it to the beach. (Som also showed swimwear paired with tailored jackets, so we’re definitely on to something here.) Not to be forgotten were two white dresses — both the one above and another a perfect tent.


HONORNEW Vibe: Pretty. Just so damn pretty.

Important notes: HONOR’s show was fun and feminine, designed for the type of woman who isn’t afraid to play around with her look. One day she’s Wednesday Adams in black lace shorts and a crisp white collar, the next day she’s trying out floral palazzo pants or a ball gown skirt and boxy shirt because if not now, when? Whatever her mood, whatever the look, it’s always, always lovely.

Show: Jason Wu

jasonwucomp Vibe: A little Calvin, a little five star safari.

Important notes: By the time this review goes live, Jason Wu’s closing gowns will likely already be claimed for the 2014 Oscars. Everything else leading up to these gowns? Lightweight safari jackets and easy walking shorts, baggy sweaters over pretty skirts and champagne sequins that that sparkled just enough, but not too much.

Show: Cushnie et Ochs

Cushnie Vibe: If Khaleesi left her Army of Unsullied and moved to Manhattan.

Important notes: Cushnie et Ochs looked like Cushnie et Ochs — sexy silhouettes in white and black with cut outs, slits and fabric that clings. Why fix what isn’t broken? Although, two welcome surprises included the deep purple hue and a crepe mannish trouser in white.

Tired yet? Good, me neither! On tomorrow’s agenda: Rag & Bone reminding you the ’90s aren’t going away, plus Helmut Lang, Suno, and a whole lot of FASHUN.

    I think that most of the fashions I’ve seen are very reminiscent of the 90s and I totally love it!

    Jason Wu’s shorts and heavy pocketed jacket just nails it and those delicate heels look like bangles on the ankles. what a stunning similarity yet a great contrast of styles.

    Fashion Month is all so overwhelming – do you feel obliged that you need to immediately update your readers? I mean, don’t you want it to marinate in some matzah balls first?

    I’m kind of a fan of the elements of the nineties that are returning. Also, it’s nice to see a few more muscular models. Still thin, but with a few muscled bulges. At least that’s one win (eh, kinda) for body diversity?
