New York - RTW SS09

Ralph Lauren
Always classic. This collection's twist was its African, Arabian accents. Headscarfs/turbans along with Indiana Jones style hats. Safari silk shirts, harem pants and narrow legged trousers in sand tones. Metallic dresses in soft golds, greens, black and white.

Marc Jacobs
A decadent, flamboyant collection. The prints are a kaleidoscope of colour so hard to describe you have to see it. He takes you back in time and steps you into the future in one fail swoop. His accessories i.e. stacked bangles can already be seen on the high street. Our standout outfit is the metallic purple leather pencil skirt teamed with a sunshine yellow shirt – Fabulous! and so is this collection.

Diane Von Furstenberg
Hippy chic was the surprise theme here. K-S is not convinced as we adore DVF's usual easy to wear glam designs – maybe it's the flower headbands that are putting us off. There are some great pieces in this collection but they are lost in the hippy focus!
