First Look: NYFW S/S 2008

I'm getting really confused. New York Fashion Week has just started, with collections for next spring, and I'm still thinking about my autumn winter wardrobe. However, there have been loads and loads of new pictures for me to look at, so I thought I'd show you some of my favourites.

I liked the Karen Walker collection, especially the mixture of different patterns and also the floral print dresses. The dress in the middle reminded me a little of Russia, which seems to be an influence running through a couple of the collections so far. I loved the floppy hats and scarfs; ladylike and reminding me so much of summer!

Tailoring and the slouchy boyfriend blazer look is also staying next spring. The outfit in the middle from Jenni Kayne reminds me of looks sported by both Kirsten Dunst and Mary Kate Olsen recently. A simple grey t-shirt with a slouchy blazer can be really effective. I've noticed a lot of neutrals, perhaps a theme for next spring.

I really like some of the interesting shapes featured in the collections, particularly the Proenza Schouler coat above. I also like the sleeves on the Doo.Ri coat, which is again in a neutral colour. Apart from neutrals, yellow seems to be a popular colour. I absolutely love the colour of the Jason Wu dress.

There isn't really a theme running these three pictures; I just really liked them individually. The first picture I love because of the simplicity. Accessory-wise, she's carrying an oversized clutch, which is also something to watch this fall. The jacket from Badgley Mischka is a great shape, and compliments the shorts really well. I also really liked the jacket from Jenni Kayne; the detailing and the lightness of it makes it perfect for spring.

Of course, I had to mention the dresses. There have been many show stoppers so far and I had loads of trouble only picking three. I didn't include any Marchesa dresses, but I thought that there were a few Oscar-worthy dresses in their collection. (Marchesa was a collection that suggested a bit of a Russian influence). I was really impressed by Badgley Mischka where there were some gorgeous dresses. My favourite had to be the purple one; I love the shape. Bill Blass was an unusual show with the girls posing like mannequins, but it had some stunning dresses like the one above.
