MBFW Day 5: Sensuality and Sensibility. Mining the Earth.

HEAD’S UP: It's Fashion Week, baby! Who's ready? We're ready! And we have a slight tweak to share. Of course, we still endeavor to provide a roundup of the best, worst and most interesting Yours Truly&Co. witnesses, from trends to sightings to the rather unusual/bizarre. The tweak has been inspired by Twitter. The coverage will focus, as has become the custom, on what truly inspires or what is so painfully hideous that it is remarkable. However, we will tell that story in 50 words or less. Yes, 50. Or less. Ready? Let the games begin ...

3.1 Phillip Lim

FRESH off of his collaboration with Target, Phillip Lim takes his 3.1 eponymous line to the geological depths. Interesting discoveries, particularly the metallic skirts. Others (the whites) didn't seem so earthen, but that probably wasn't the designer's intention. After all, these nuggets are for the marketplace. (See video above). - YOURS TRULY

Day 5
(SOME of the players at the tents and elsewhere): 3.1 Phillip Lim, Adam Lippes, Alice + Olivia, Araks, Assembly, Barbara Tfank, Carolina Herrera, Concept Korea, Czar by Cesar Galindo, Donna Karan New York, Falguni and Shane Peacock, Hache, Holmes & Yang, Karen Walker, Kaufmanfranco, Libertine, Maki Oh, Mathieu Mirano, Ohne Titel, Ovadia & Sons, Pamella Roland, Reem Acra, Rosie Assoulin, Theyskens' Theory, Thom Browne, Tim Coppens, Tommy Hilfiger, Tribune Standard, Victoria, Victoria Beckham, Zero + Maria Cornejoe

The air is redolent of love (Libertine) and lust (Falguni and Shane Peacock). Meanwhile, these guys (Concept Korea) mean business and that's a good thing. Elsewhere, some striking discoveries are made (3.1 Phillip Lim).

LOVE. Yes, Yes, Yes! (or Oui, Oui, Oui!) Color. Bling. Humor. Swing. This is style I'll wrap myself in. Fashion that speaks to the girl in me, who just loves pretty things that are so necessary. Three dots on right cheek of models, like Pierrot the melancholy clown. No tears  here. - MARIE T. DRISCOLL

Concept Korea

LEE Suk Tae and Park Young Soo, two of the four designers showing under Concept Korea, are names to remember. Both hit the bull's eye with their visions. The former the style of boys and girls around the global village; the latter structural avant-garde overlaid with chicness and elegance. - YOURS TRULY

THE lusty Femme Fatale, Dominatrix, Vixen, Sex Kitten sister girl. Regardless of her handle, here's a one who is dressed for various occasions to kill and thrill, right down to the surprising / disturbing brace flanking her leg where on a regular woman a simple garter suffices. - YOURS TRULY
