It is sexy, it is playful and it is certainly the furthest thing from boring.
That's certainly how it landed, though the designers' stated inspirations were as varied as the mustard yellow jackets and tops inspired by the animals of the Congolese rainforest at the Simon Miller presentation, and the Post-It yellow of Sies Marjan's airy chiffon dresses, and the psychedelic greenhouse at Christian Siriano's that sprouted tiered, sunflower-yellow flounce gowns and shawl-collar moto jackets.
A deep bench of yellow dresses was also in evidence at Carolina Herrera's show, where impressive yellow gowns brightened up the Museum of Modern Art's outdoor sculpture garden like miniature suns. But the most memorable manifestation came with the last look of the last show of the season — a sleeveless butter-yellow dress with an outsized folded fabric flower at the left shoulder that closed Marc Jacobs' colorful, inspired-by-somewhere-else collection of clothes for the eccentric traveler.
Underwear as outerwear has its boom-and-bust cycles on the runway, and the prevalence of the bra top is definitely pushing spring in the boom direction. Adam Selman's denim-heavy collection more on that below and Opening Ceremony which technically presented a pre-spring range both offered bra tops in a denim fabrication.
But the buzziest bunch of bra tops came courtesy of Shayne Oliver, co-founder of the on-hiatus Hood by Air label, whose capsule collection for Helmut Lang included bras so deconstructed, reconstructed and tweaked that they more framed than covered the breasts, making these bras supporting players in the free-the-nipple movement. Oliver's take on Helmut Lang also keyed into the general strap happiness on the season's runways though it should be noted that Oliver was doing the free-floating strap thing at Hood by Air since that label's beginning.
Elsewhere, the trend had a more genteel interpretation, including Michael Kors' washed-down take on the tropics where the loose ends fluttered from the cuffs of gauzy cotton streamer shirts. At Monse, skirts and dresses with fringe that dangled from mid-thigh to calf bounced enthusiastically with each model's step like a waving cheerleader's pom-poms after the big win.
It turns out that's what the label's designers Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim whose design duties also include helming Oscar de la Renta were going for, taking inspiration from vintage American sports uniforms and showing their spring and summer collection on a sports club's basketball court.
Backstage after the show, the design duo explained that the emphasis on Americana, including but not limited to patriotic red, white and blue stripes and the star-spangling of shoes, tops, skirts, mink towels and shoulder-baring intarsia knit sweaters, was an homage to the good old U.
We couldn't have gotten where we are without New York's support," Garcia said, adding that nothing "sinister" should be read into the mining of American motifs a reference to Raf Simons' Calvin Klein show on Sept. Garcia's shout-out to the New York Fashion Week scene comes in a season where some of the heaviest hitters, including Thom Browne, Rodarte and Proenza Schouler, have opted to present their collections in Paris.
Monse's cheerleading-for-America mind-set was shared by Adam Selman, whose spring and summer collection was full of prairie-appropriate gingham shorts, skirts, work shirts and denim pieces that ranged from white short-and-shirt sets to crisp blue denim coveralls with painted flowers blooming at the ankles.
I was really focused on American sportswear — and making 'America' not a bad word. The Maternity section has specially designed and sized bottoms, tops, dresses, nursing clothes, activewear and leggings made especially for expectant mothers.
Click into this section if you're expecting a little bundle of joy and need to update your wardrobe accordingly. Our Women's Plus section is suitable for women who prefer their clothes with a curvier cut in larger sizes, while the Women's Petite section is suitable for those ladies who find standard sizes too roomy or too long in the sleeve and leg.
Men have a few options to narrow down their clothing choices. The Men's Clothing department includes a full range of clothes for any occasion, time of day or season, and those men who find standard clothing sizes comfortable can find what they need in the main department sections, including bottoms, tops and underwear and socks.
You'll find everything you need to outfit your little ones, including activewear, outfit sets, shorts, swimsuits and underwear. It's easiest to shop for kids' clothes by focusing on the specific section that caters to their age or size range.
The main children's clothing sections cater to boys and girls who are usually in elementary and middle school, though each kid may size out of these ranges at different points in their lives.
We also have a Junior's section for girls who have outgrown the clothes in the girls' section but aren't yet ready for grown-up women's fashions. Young men in the same situation can find smaller sizes in the Men's Clothing department.
