NYFW SS/15: Review Day 1
It's a Neutral Party!
Ms. LeBlanc's Faves, Interesting and Street Styles

I spent day 1 working the 9-5, mourning the passing of Joan Rivers and had a random Model Run-In at Atlantic Ave/Barclays Center. However I DID manage to narrow down some of the few shows that I found "interesting" and the street styles that would give the tailored runway looks a run for their money. 


This Cotton Competition presentation just made me feel so warm and fuzzy, with ladylike happiness, inside. Supima put on a flawless presentation that told a powerful story of classic fashion.  The  show featured flawless and well structured looks putting a modern twist on the babydoll dress, the 50's housedress, the Hollywood starlet ensemble and the traditional flamenco uniform as fun, bold, flirty and daring pieces danced down the runway.
I began to think that each piece was strategically designed for a certain personality in mind but settled on "Michelle O meets Manhattan Socialite" . Denim maxi gowns, ruffled babydoll dresses and cotton geo gowns were featured  along with light blues, creams and patterns of detailed embroidery. We will definitley see way more of this collection on red carpets worldwide, very soon!

take a look at some of my favorites

The last show I could actually watch, for the evening, was the Todd Snyder brand; a clean cut presentation offering structured resort wear of cardigans, skinny trousers, bomber jackets, short sets and over coats

Male models confidently embodied Howard Hughes cool as they displayed Nantucket nautical's or a Polo Classic as they came down the runway. I loved how each piece was simply styled with white leather boat shoes, skinny ties and round frame sunglasses keeping each look traditional for menswear; it's always about the confidence!

Snyder also leaned on the Neutrals palette of creams and whites, olive green, shades of browns and blues and grey's, take a look.

Richard Chai Love
Richard Chai was the 1st show I got the opportunity to view on re-broadcast and the SS15 presentation was rather interesting for me. The NYC native debut a semi-tailored presentation featuring a "pajama" like flow of comfortable separates. Maxi dresses and coats, wide legged trousers, ruffles and rain coats bounced down the runway without cohesiveness. I also wasn't too crazy about the messy styling: off the shoulder button up's and shirts tied around waist.

Chai focused on a neutral color palette with a random mixture of other patterns...like Satin and Sequins. Of that palette featured creams, lavenders, navy's and charcoal grey's along Chai's favorite, neon yellow. I did actually find SOME gems, take a look...


Nicolas K= Way too much darkness for Spring/Summer, I became depressed just watching, but I did Like the Middle Eastern/Hijab inspired hoods and scarves...but again SPRING & SUMMER!! HOODS & SCARVES?? smh.

BCBG Max Azria= Bravo as usual!  Azria stayed true to his flirty and fun girly girl with 
another flawless collection.

Tadashi Shoji: A beautiful mix of tradition and flare. Well executed and very cohesive with flowy fabrics and intricate detail
