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.

Published a new shoot today from photographer Michael D. Becker and knitwear designer Kinjal Mehta. Enjoyed viewing it particularly because he used models that were healthy (non-anorexic looking) and his use of color against a darker background made the images jump off the screen. We’re all about showcasing new photographers and Becker should definitely build an audience with his coming works. View Mehta’s entire collection here.

The 2014 Spring advertising campaigns have hit both fast and furious and Kate Moss is all over Stuart Weitzman’s Spring 2014 campaign in a beautiful (and as the brand describes it) “sun-kissed” look.

What’s there to do before a full on runway show? Wait backstage, get the order of the looks… in order and make funny faces while photographers snap away.
