Day 5 NYFW: Luxury, Whimsy & Rock 'n' Roll

HEAD’S UP: It’s now a tradition at VEVLYN’S PEN. The plan each day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is to give a roundup of the best (and worse where applicable) and most interesting, from shows to trends to sightings to the rather unusual/bizarre. This go round Yours Truly has a wingwoman in the person of Dame Francesca Simon. Even with two of us, though, we really, really can’t be everywhere. But we will be where something is happening and will keep you in the loop. Drum roll, please …

Day 5
(SOME of the players at the tents and elsewhere): Alice + Olivia, Betsey Johnson, Carlos Miele, Carolina Herrera, Chado Ralph Rucci, Callula Lilibelle, Chris Benz, Creatures of the Wind, Donna Karan New York, Guishem, Jenny Packham, Marc Jacobs, Monique Lhuillier, Pamella Roland, Sachin + Babi, The Row, Theyskens' Theory, Tracy Reese, Zero + Maria Cornejo

name behind one of the strongest collections on one of the best days of Fashion Week is Carolina Herrera. One word that fairly describes the collection is luxurious. This is true of everything from the dark gray wool flannel A-line skirt/black turtleneck w/wing cuffs combo for day to the rust abstract print organza gown for evening. Clever touches such as exaggerated cuffs on the aforementioned turtleneck and superior fabrics set the tone.

More from Carolina Herrrera and Day 5 shortly. Meanwhile see shows/highlights: http://www.mbfashionweek.com/
