February 13th, proved to be yet another successful day at Fashion Week. Three stand-out designers were Malandrino,Y-3, and Suno, who all brought varying forms of design to the table. Malandrino used her French advantage to the fullest, with furs and evening dresses in deep jewel tones. The dresses were not only exquisite, but figure flattering with strategic ruching, enhanced décolletage, and empire waists. Y-3, a performance based label by Yoji Yamato, took the design aesthetic to a whole other level. The clothes looked like they could be used to deter the elements rather than to conquer the elliptical. The styles were both militaristic and pioneered with protective shapes covering the body. On the contrast, Suno a 2-year-old label was a exploration of timelessness— with their inspiration found in the elderly. With wallpaper like prints and a sophisticated palette with pops of bright colors, the tunics and skirts were anything but dapper, and always, ultra-chic.
