Brown is back in a big way for Fall/Winter 2010, at least according to Mackage. A safe palette of neutral shades, from brown to silver, black and cream found its down the runway, however, it just felt right this season. Perhaps the precursor was the snowstorms that recently struck the east coast, but either way, Mackage’s signature, jackets, were absolutely stunning. Great tailoring was found on even the fullest of puffer coats, while the Mackage dresses were given an interesting texture  while sleek enough to slide under their uber-chic jackets and coats. As the show went on, shoulders became bolder and more prounounced, yet it just felt necessary, and what was needed at fashion at this moment, setting a very stylish, sculpted tone for New York Fashion Week.


BCBG Max Azria

With the exception of using jersey fabric, this show was a complete departure from what we’ve come to expect from BCBG Max Azria. A bit of ‘Luke Skywalker’ desert chic seemed to be the motif, with long triangular-cut tunics, angled color blocking, and slouch slouch slouch running throughout the collection. A mostly muted palette reigned this season, however some requisite sparkle was not completely forgotten.


Richard Chai

Keeping it clean and simple this season in clothes and makeup, Richard Chai showed us his smartly dresses cool girl with navys, greys, and blacks leading the way. Easy breezy clothes, only made complicated by the layering techniques were found here; sequins, light jersey, and fur all had a very downtown New York vibe, making the statement that versatile, weatable clothing is what this season is about.


Duckie Brown

Although menswear is infrequently covered on Fashion Pulse Daily, we always have to make an exception for a few designers, which always includes Duckie Brown. These designers sure know how to make a guy come out of his shell when it comes to expirementing with and embracing color in everything from trenchcoats to suits, topcoats and cropped pants.
