New York Fashion Week

NEW YORK -- The collection: Jenni Kayne. The inspiration: Surf culture and easy urban sportswear. The look: Borrowed from the boys of summer. L.A.-based designer Kayne has mastered the summer suit in all its varied forms (with shorts or pants, an anorak or cropped blazer). Soft, silk crepe suits came in daffodil yellow or fuchsia with lipstick red accents; a teal houndstooth poncho with matching cropped, tapered pants, and a Southwestern print mini skirt with a matching cropped top. Color-blocked cotton raincoats and reverse seersucker trenches, crepe, cap-sleeved gowns, nubby beach cardigans, screen-printed T-shirts with abstract prints of a surfer in the water, and Kayne's signature D'Orsay flats in several summery colors rounded out this SoCal lifestyle collection.

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles-based celebrity stylist, reality TV star and designer Rachel Zoe took a break from awards show dressing (Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway is a client), to present her fall  2013 collection Wednesday afternoon at Lincoln Center, to a crowd that included Miley Cyrus and Coco Rocha. The inspiration: 1970s equestrian style, romantic men's wear, baroque details and a nod to the London rock 'n' roll underground, according to the show notes. The look: Refined but cozy, from the collarless camel coat, leather shell and jodphur pants that opened the show, to the cream, oversized, cable knit sweater worn over caramel leather pants that came out later.

NEW YORK -- Joseph Altuzarra was in the news last week when it was announced that luxury goods conglomerate Kering (formerly named PPR) invested in his burgeoning brand. So expectations were high for his collection, shown Saturday night at New York Fashion Week. And Altuzarra did not disappoint. The inspiration: Japanese Boro clothing, or "everyday garments patched and pieced to prolong their usefulness for the farmers and fishermen who wore them," according to the show notes. The look: Utilitarian Japanese work wear and ethnic accents spun into sultry luxury.
