NYFW | FW13 part III

An abundance of sumptuous layers and unconventional silhouettes were the stars of this collection. I loved the play on volume and texture with the waterfall of fabric and the contrast of those angular white panels. I was confused by the tattoo socks though (you reading this, JD? haha) but it was generally intriguing and interesting to look at this collection and just wonder.
This season, Phillip Lim once again doled out a selection of finely tailored pieces, each extremely wearable to say the least. I could see most of the 18-25 in NYC wearing these simple yet sophisticated pieces, from the pink paneled coat to the patch trousers in the last look. The piping gave an almost cartoon-like quality to the pieces, which were styled together so well. I can't really say much other than the fact that it's very cool, very chic, and that I get really great vibes from this collection. 
I loved the presence of volume and structure throughout this collection. The jewel tones and numerous  embellishments splashed throughout the bodices and skirts were beautiful against a dark and muted tones. Also, can we talk about those necklines? Perfect balance of high, low, and in-between.
Most of the pieces that I took away from Theysken's collection were the ones with interesting surfaces. Quilted and embossed textures breathed life into otherwise basic shifts. The final dress really stood out to me--the round exaggerated hips and that incredible pearly corrugated texture really spoke to Theysken's idea of looking to the "future." 
Inconceivably cool and mind-boggling is the best way to summarize Thom Browne's fairy-tale, out-of-this-world aesthetic. We can always count on Browne to take traditional silhouettes and blow them to exaggerated proportions, yet successfully execute a hauntingly beautiful array of romantic pieces. The look of tattered lace and the abundance of fire-engine red florals on white and gray were absolutely stunning.

Currently it sounds like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

I love your reviews, they're such a great 'sum-up'. So in love with 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Rodarte and Thom Browne are amazing.
