Von Furstenberg’s Sensuous Fall – From the first look, it was clear that Diane von Furstenberg had a sensuous woman in mind for her fall 2012 collection with draping, body conscious shapes presented during her runway show earlier today. Elegant silhouettes and leather gloves dominated the runway with a color palette of black, red, teal and plum injecting some color into the new season. Von Furstenberg also embraced her signature print work which hinged on the surreal side with jigsaw like intensity. Autumn showcases a marriage between youthful seduction and ladylike sophistication in the form of clinging dresses layered underneath oversize coats.
Wang’s Pared Down Fall – After last season’s array of prints and racing motifs, Alexander Wang chose a more pared down approach for his fall 2012 show featuring an all-star cast including Gisele Bundchen, Shalom Harlow, Frankie Rayder and Karolina Kurkova amongst others. This season went back to Wang’s roots albeit a tad more polished with leather coats, netted masks which covered models’ lower faces and knitted sweaters. The collection was minimal with a focus on embellishments such as military inspired accents on trench coats, chiffon tops and sculpted shoulders. Despite its simplicity, the showing turned out to be one of the designer’s strongest efforts yet proving less is indeed more.
Wu’s Armored Lady – Jason Wu delivered strict elegance with an homage to his Chinese roots for his fall 2012 show presented earlier today during New York Fashion Week. Form-fitting yet ladylike silhouettes hit the catwalk with sportswear undertones in the form of belted coats and capes. Military inspired jackets were accented with brocade, tassels and Swarovski crystals for a glamorous twist. Fall brought out a tougher, sleeker outing than what we would expect with high slits, leather and luxurious furs.
Gasoline Girls – After a preview, we have a full look at Prada’s spring 2012 campaign starring some of the industry’s top girls including Natasha Poly, Guinevere van Seenus, Elise Crombez, Meghan Collison, Katryn Kruger and Ymre Stiekema.

Soaking up the sun, the girls appear to be luxuriating before hitting the road.
Daring Cavalli – For the spring-summer season, Roberto Cavalli shortened hemlines and introduced cut-out detailing to combat the summer heat.

Wild yet sophisticated, the Cavalli woman is all about daring glamour paired with soft femininity.
