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.
