NYFW Spring 2018: J. Mendel

J. Mendel harnessed the Jazz Age’s burnout velvet, warm, refined hues and micro-pleated dresses for his Spring 2018 collection. “The colors were inspired by water color paintings from the ‘30’s,” said the designer, referring to the refined apricot, pale teal and rose dust hues seen throughout. “It’s a romantic look that’s ready to go to a party. In the times we are living in now we need a little bit of a party.” Plush furs, tulle gowns and his famous impeccable craftsmanship rounded out his presentation.

NYFW Spring 2018: Carolina Herrera

Clean, colorful stripes, gingham, big shoulders and lots of saturated hues embodied the look at the iconic designer’s runway show. Said actress Michelle Monaghan, “I am reeling from the femininity. The colors were spectacular.” Nicky Hilton agreed. “It was so Carolina. You wanted to eat the colors they were so beautiful!” Nails stayed subdued, and makeup was pared down and understated with the focus on a subtly defined lip.

NYFW Spring 2018: Phillip Plein

Dita Von Teese’s sparkling burlesque routine opened the dramatic bondage-meets-Disney-Princess-themed collection shown at Hammerstein Ballroom. Rapper Future provided the musical entertainment and acted as a sort of ringmaster as both men and women’s designs were showed concurrently; models including Adriana Lima, Irina Shayk, and Vernell Varnado and Cordell Broadus (Snoop Dogg’s father and son, respectively), strutted the runway in strappy leather dresses, distressed denim, diamond-quilted metallic bombers and the occasional t-shirt with the slogan “Prince Charming Made Me Do It.”

NYFW Spring 2018: Colovos

Michael and Nicole Colovos were creative directors at Helmut Lang for eight years, and their experience and flair shows in their new collection, which Michael describes as "a modern, futuristic, bizarre and layered landscape with texture and pattern." Dresses layered over pants, dark rinse jeans, asymmetric shirt dresses and leather sweatshirts keep the look minimal but arty. Hairstylist guru Odile Gilbert created a "cool look" with her hands (no brushing) and makeup artist Chantel designed a no-makeup visage with a flash of color.
