Let's talk about gowns baby! ( NYFW SS 13)

We are just two days into the New York Spring/Sumeer 2013 shows and we are already picking our favorites this time around. In the coming days we would definitely talk about the best trends at NYFW , but looking at the gowns our heart fluttered to really just for now talk about gown baby!

 Carolina Herrera

The painterly pastel strokes combined with languid fabrics and bright solids, leads us to believe that these can be red carpet favorites for twenty somethings. The red bold yet delicate lace shirt gown to the the ethereal white with intricate floral embellishments showed the labels versatility. But the one piece which takes up our applaud is sheer black number with so many elements that you would think it would end up a mere collage. But every piece fits - the neon accents, the baroque applique , the sequins , the colorblock panels et all.

Alice+ Olivia 

Ah the cutesy summer pieces! Cross straps plisse gown in many shades of blue can be perfect for resort too. The beige number with lace panels in the skirt would look perfect with a statement necklace. See the label has our styling juices flowing already !

Theyskens Theory

 The man is known for his clean tailoring and workwear essentials. But the two gowns featured below did complete justice to Oliver's attention to form and silhouette. 

Reem Acra

Reem Acra definitely dreams up glam and glitter this season. And it has been successfully embodied in so many ways. Is glitter gold godess your thing? We have something for you ! Or would you rather feel like a princess in gold applique gown or maybe more sophisticated with a white tailored piece and glitter details ? The label offers it all.

Donna Karan

Donna Karan understands prints, shapes, colors too well. So you have a sleepy ocean like glitter gown with a beautiful asymmetric neckline and you have a glitter in gold too but only it ultimately turns grey.The classic black gown with the painterly print at clever places makes you think - why no one thought that before?

Pamella Rolland

The designer beautifully interpreted black and white classics. The result is an interplay in textures - glitter with matte and sheer with opaque. Makes an impact and we would love to be seen in Pamella Rolland's pieces.

 Marc Jacobs

The man too favored black and white but in a totally different view. The stripes, curves and checks all had such a magnificent graphic quality to it , but still didn't overpower the silhouettes. The last one with sheer panels , checks and stripes combined waist down, had such an aerial and floaty quality that we had to take notice.

 Chris Benz 

As good as the designs were, the styling was even better at this presentation. The combinations of gowns with blouses, pants with two layers of tunics - and all layers went well together.


  1. Alice + Oliva by far my favorite! :) But I LOVE Chris Benz interesting details! So chic!
