New York Fashion Week: Fall 13 Favorites

Carolina Herrera, Marches, Tory Burch
New York fashion Week didn't disappoint. I can't say that there was one mind-blowing trend shown on the catwalks, or one particular designer to talk about, or one radical change to transform the whole fashion world once and forever. No. The fashion week was pleasant but with nothing going beyond the fashion canons. My personal favorites could be reduced to the following.
A sweet countryside romance drawn from Jane Austen books seen at Carolina Herrera, Marchesa and Tory Burch.
A powerful woman seen at Donna Karan, Michael Kors and Tibi. I call the vision of the women of XXI century by Karan and Smilovic "modern Amazons"
A retro feel, sweet and nostalgic reference to the first half of the XX century seen at Marc Jacobs, Badgley Mischka and Marc by Marc Jacobs. And if Marc Jacobs repeats the theme twice in the collections of his two brands - the trend is obvious.
"From Russia with Love" well known theme is back. Tsarists, aristocratic Russia with an injection of colourful chic of Caucasus of that epoch was seen at Ralph Lauren. Meanwhile Misha Nonoo and Francisco Costa gave their preferences to post-revolutionary Russia. 
Life is so electric at least in Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta and Jason Wu opinion. I wouldn't mind to look onto the world through Maestro de la Renta rose-tinted glasses along with trying his bright fuchsia creation.  

Неделя Моды в Нью-Йорке не разочаровала. Я бы не сказала, однако, что нам были показаны из ряда вон выходящими коллекции, что кто-то из дизайнеров особо бросился в глаза или, что мир моды был радикально изменен каким-либо новшеством. Нет. Неделя Моды оказалась приятной, но довольно спокойной, все в рамках приличия, как говорится. Мне лично особо понравившиеся и запомнившиеся тренды можно свести к следующим:
Деревенская романтика, как будто бы почерпанная из книг Джейн Остин, представленная на показах Carolina Herrera, Marchesa и Tory Burch.
 Сильная женщина XXI века, чей образ был создан  Donna Karan, Michael Kors и Tibi. Я же назвала моделей, гордо вышагивающих на показах Donna Karan и Tibi, современными Амазонками.
Назад в прошлое, Marc Jacobs, Mark Badgley и James Mischka отправили нас в путешествие по ретро волнам начала ХХ века. А если Marc Jacobs использует одну и туже тему в коллекциях своих двух брендов - тренд на лицо. 
Из России с любовью. Русская тематика снова в моде. Ralph Lauren, создавая свою коллекцию, очевидно черпал вдохновение из царской, аристократической России с примесью ярких красок Кавказа той эпохи. Misha Nonoo и Francisco Costa обратили свой взор к пост-революционной России в поисках образов для их осенних коллекций.
Жизнь ярка и прекрасна, по крайней мере по мнению Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta и Jason Wu. Я бы не отказалась посмотреть на мир через розовые очки маэстро de la Renta, а вместе с этим и примерить его божественное ярко-розовое бальное платье.
