Monday was a packed day of shows. Riding on the heels of a successful spring collection, Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos of Peter Pilotto showed their signature long cutout dresses in black and white patterns. There was a sexy white sheath with a peekaboo slash from the neckline down toward the torso. Multicolored cardigans, lots of layers, and skirts over pants (a trend here) over thick blue tights made for a warm and wearable collection.
Pringle of Scotland paired its signature sweaters with flared pants and fur vests. Models in knit ponchos and a black and red sweater coat walked down the runway to the tunes of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
At Christopher Kane, Arizona Muse modeled a multicolored crochet dress to perfection. The collection also featured plastic bubblelike accents on collars and pockets and in the form of a squeezable clutch.
Burberry’s snowy show started out with mod coats in red, orange, greens and blues. The pants were shown skinny and tight with a large bell bottom. Plaid toggle coats and sweaters (and furry white hats) were a perfect touch before the snowstorm as finale, in which Jamie Hince, Kate Bosworth, Rachel Bilson, Stella Tennant and Mario Testino were just inches away from the runway blizzard. The models stayed dry in clear plastic raincoats.
After a long day of shows, the fashion set flocked to Liberty for the party for Alexander Wang and Love magazine’s “Androgyny” issue, which features covers of Kate Moss and Justin Bieber. Katie Grand, Daisy Lowe, Alison Mosshart and Wang were among the many guests who took in a solo performance by Beth Ditto followed by a department-store dance party. Security!
