10:00am – Michael Kors, Spring 2014

A little bit Forties, a little bit Seventies. Michael Kors’ show was full of dichotomies but it was dreamy and lovely from start to finish. While Cass Elliot crooned “Dream a Little Dream of Me” on the soundtrack, the Michael Kors lady went to the office, the beach and the disco. A keyhole cutout or a flash of leg, plus a haphazard up-do, made her look super sexy while always a lady. -JS

11:00am – Nanette Lepore, Spring 2014

Nanette Lepore presented a well-balanced collection of effortless separates for Spring. She kept her palette neutral with blush and white tones, turquoise and poppy accents, as well as a blurry floral print that appeared throughout the whole collection and accessories. Asymmetric ruffles and chiffon layers added to the lightness of dresses and tops, while drawstring details and the easy tailoring of pant suits, jumpsuits and jackets created a playful and urban mood.

3:00pm – Milly, Spring 2014

Milly designer Michelle Smith constructs an ultramodern interpretation of traditional feminine silhouettes with the use of three-dimensional technical fabrics, layered transparency and architectural illusions. Drawing inspiration from perforated facades found in contemporary Japanese architecture during a recent trip to Tokyo, Smith’s laser cutting techniques and sculptural silhouettes lay the groundwork for a collection that plays with the eye and unveils unexpected proportions. -KS

3:00pm – Joie, Spring 2014 presentation

A classic French road sign led to the “Rue de Joie” where bored jeune filles modeled a white wardrobe against a whitewashed stone wall. Like the T-shirt said, Oui Oui. – JS

3:30pm – Reed Krakoff backstage

The makeup was a no-makeup look and the hair a sleek, low pony with a side part. Newly separated from Coach, Reed Krakoff is only looking forward with his modernist collection. Bright yellows popped against a sea of white. -JS

5:00pm – Marchesa, Spring 2014

Designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig moved away from the structure and grandeur their gowns have been known for, especially on the red carpet. While no less romantic or embellished than usual, the dresses had a lighter, negligee-inspired drape to them, and many of the looks included visible lingerie. Next Spring, life is a boudoir. -JS

9:30pm – Buro24/7 dinner

The Russian style site Buro24/7 hosted an intimate dinner at the W that was a who’s who of street style stars. Obviously the hosts, editors Miroslava Duma and Nasiba Adilova, are among the brightest of that set. Leandra Medine, fresh off her book launch, Tina Craig, Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo enjoyed the perfect fuel for fashion week: tomato salad, grilled branzino and fruit. Ken Downing and I happily represented NM. -JS
