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.

NEW YORK -- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, named 2012's top women's wear designers by the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America, presented their fall 2013 collection Thursday morning in the sumptuous rooms of a $48-million Gilded Age town house on New York's Upper East Side, complete with twinkling chandeliers, faded Oriental rugs and mismatched chairs. The designer sisters were dressed like haute ragamuffins in furs and pointy toed shoes, their long hair fashionably mussed up. They found the space, rented for the occasion, with the help of a real estate agent, they said.
