The spotlight was shining a little brighter on Peter Som on Friday morning at New York Fashion Week, since it was announced Thursday that he will be the next high-end designer to create an accessible capsule collection for Kohl's department store next spring. Som is the fourth designer in the store's DesigNation program, following Narciso Rodriguez, Derek Lam and Catherine Malandrino (who unveils her collection on Sept. 27). Som launched his namesake runway collection in 2001 and had a role consulting for Tommy Hilfiger for five seasons, ending last year.

Los Angeles-based label BCBG kicked off New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center on Friday morning, with Max and Lubov Azria showing their fall-winter 2013 collection. The look: Urban bedouin if there is such a thing, with layered loose silk pants, tunics and dresses in laser-cut mosaic-like patterns, worn with fun multicolored, patterned fur coats and baseball jackets. Thigh-high leather legging-boots and slouchy cashmere beanies added a streetwise edge. Palette included blue, burgundy, black and white.

NEW YORK -- The collection: Monika Chiang. Launched in 2011, the brand has stores in L.A. and New York. Chiang is the girlfriend of entrepreneur Chris Burch, who helped launch her brand as well as ex-wife Tory Burch's. Where Tory's look is decidedly uptown, Monika's is downtown -- and after-dark. The inspiration: Street style in South Africa, where Chiang traveled over the New Year's holiday. The look: "Luxe athleticism," as described by Chiang. Black leather skirts with car-wash pleats, embroidered leather bra tops, block-print skinny jeans, biker jackets in leather or stripe canvas, parachute silk pants and anoraks, strappy sandals with skyscraper-high block heels, baseball caps.
