10:00am – BCBGMAXAZRIA
BCBGMAXAZRIA celebrates 25 years with a Fall 2014 collection that embodies timeless femininity. A rich winter palette of black, icy greys, navy and camel are harmonized with pale mauves, blush, burnt orange and mint. Landscape burnout prints and color-blocked elements create a striking dynamic against delicate hand-beaded details. – KS

3:00pm Rebecca Minkoff
Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall collection put into perspective the woman who represents the brand, this time with a sophisticated and more understated mood. While the use of bright accent colors and patterns kept the legacy of Minkoff’s urban woman intact, the collection brought plenty of men’s wear tailoring references in the oversized outerwear. – LA

4:00pm Nonoo
Misha Nonoo presented a collection perfectly in tune with the feminine women watching the show at Chelsea’s Eyebeam. With an interplay of transparent organza, honeycomb mesh, bonded printed leather and fur details, her collection moved from architectural references to urban women’s closets. Standouts were the soft outerwear pieces and modern sweatshirts and knits to be worn with minis and pencil skirts. – LA
