The One Sentence Recap, Twice

This morning officially initiated fashion week in spite of the plentiful knowledge we accrued yesterday. Starting with Coach at 9AM on the West Side Highway and BCBG Max Azria at 10AM by the “tents” at Lincoln Center, one common theme already runs strong among the paltry selection of shows on display for public consumption, and I’m pretty sure we’ll continue to see it. There are models and there are clothes.

Here are one sentence recaps from both shows.

At Coach, The 60s + 90s incidentally = 2014 as evidenced the prevalence of pastel patent leather straight mini skirts, a uniform, stringy and slightly oily hairstyle (which Amelia has already started to test drive) of one very dramatic, sight impairing comb over, flatform slides and clogs, gilded rave beads as chokers — and unseasonal fur, presumably faux, served in similar shades of an Easter egg carton.

At BCBG Max Azria, the girls have black belts in tying pastel belts around their waists and to break up box-shaped flimsy, deep v dresses and tops (as paired with culottes) in similarly pale colors. Hai-yah!

Ed. note c/o Amelia: one model at BCBG, of look 13 fame, did not wear shoes. She seems fun.

  • Love the non-shoe wearing model look!

  • Outfix

    Coach had a whiff of Miu Miu but dang flabbit! Twas goo.

  • Your description of Coach sums up Baby Spice. I love it.

    Warm Regards,

  • I’m digging the 60s/90s Coach references. The styles these days are often inspired by the past mixed with modern elements. That’s fashion for ya. Somewhat referencial, somewhat new. :] // ☼ ☯

  • Jilli Joffe

    I’m actually digging Coach’s 90’s meets 60’s vibe! It’s pretty youthful and fun, not necessarily what I would normally associate with the brand. The jackets sort of remind me of what Candice Swanepoel wore to Burning Man this year, and she looked RAD (90’s slang being fully appropriate).

  • Aw bless – at least non shoe wearing woman won’t fall foul of that runway model anguish of toppling off one’s heels…

  • Paula.

    She was wearing shoes.. they were just nude color.

  • Coach looks like the lovechild of the Scooby Doo gang & all of Wes Anderson’s characters (more specifically Gwenyth Paltrow in The Royal Tenenbaums) and I’m 100% okay with it

    BCGB looks like Little House on the Fancy China Plates

  • AnnCates

    The BCBG fashion is beautiful and very wearable! I would honestly wear some of those, which is nice because some runway outfits are so overdone it seems unwearable in real life, but both of these are very wearble!
    Much Love, AnnCates xx

  • her not wearing shoes just fits the whole outfit..

  • Love this look- the colors and the fit! Stunning!



  • Sahra

    I’m so happy my fall/winter pastels will still be useful come springtime! #frugality

  • Aleia Ramsey

    I love the instawind fabric!

    Sorry, not liking Coach. Yes it got our attention, but I think if it were not for divisive designers like Slimane going before Vevers SS ’15 collection, maybe people would just be laughing at this. It just didn’t hit cool for me. Outside of MR it’s nearly impossible to find anyone giving an opinion on the show, I’m not even sure why. I work with a stock analyst who covers Coach, she says some of the pieces are ‘kinda cool’. I see the commercial pieces if there are any (the leather minis in some nice shades, and er..the bags) being obscured by the rest of the clothes. Looking at the stock trading over the past few sessions, don’t think the market thinks too much of it either…
