The distressed leather handbag caught the eye, then seeing what it was attached to, a bigger picture was coming into view.

Found this subject quite striking beyond the obvious reasons, she gave the vulcan “live long and prosper” sign.

Prim, proper and completely put together with fur, flowing skirt and print heels (just the right height). Nothing here is out of place.

The brim can be the accent for everything else.

The melange of monochrome colors caught Maria’s lens and she couldn’t resist.

Subjects preen for Maria’s camera and with good reason. The feathered headpiece got her immediate attention. Milliners everywhere are jealous.

The cold, slush and overcast will not prevent New York’s Finest from showing up in their finest. Bare legs. Check. Above the knee lame’ skirt check.

Towards the end of the Spring/Summer 2014 collections in New York, I remarked on how varied and interesting the collections for New York Fashion week were. They were some of the strongest collections primarily because although New York tends to reflect the most commercial tastes, there are signs of art behind a smattering of the collections. Some of the collections displayed would never be sold in stores, but they’re more conceptual. London is filled with examples of shows of that nature. Just take a look at any of Gareth Pugh’s collection from 2008-2010 (some would even argue recent collections). The Tilly and William collection that was showed in September is an example of this thought process. Sure, there’s a commercial aspect behind the collection, but when looking at it, you see more art than a price tag at a local Nordstrom’s.

That’s a hope I have for fashion collections being shown for the Fall in New York. Yes, the overarching point is to make money, but let’s home there’s some artistry involved (and a wow moment or two).

P.S. The gallery below shows the artistry that was the Tilly and William SS 2014 Collection.

Cate Blanchett looks simply incredible in the January 2014 issue of Vogue. Shot by photographer Craig McDean, the color and positioning of items around Blanchett was done to perfection. It should be hitting mailboxes now and news stands within a week.
