After 300-plus shows, it’s no wonder we’re still reeling. But while the calendar may have been jam-packed, there are only a few collections that really make headlines–which is why we’ve compiled the ultimate crib sheet of the season’s most important shows and what all the major critics had to say about them.
We’ve poured through every review (we mean that literally) for qualifying adjectives and other bon mots from The New York Times’ Cathy Horyn, Eric Wilson, and the International Herald Tribune‘s Suzy Menkes; Style.com’s Nicole Phelps and Meenal Mistry; Vogue.com’s Sarah Mower, Hamish Bowles, and Mark Holgate; Samantha Critchell for the Associated Press; Lynn Yaeger for New York, and a host of other friends and bloggers.
The result is a comprehensive guide to the season’s most well-reviewed shows–from Jason Wu to Marc Jacobs. Which designers came out on top? Flash back with us now. You don’t have to take our word for it.

Crowd pleaser Coach hosted last night’s Summer Party on the High Line. There we found custom monogrammed luggage tags, Dan Humphrey (aka Gossip Girl‘s Penn Badgley) rocking some chest hair, and possibly even more exciting (depending on your appreciation for male cleavage): Grey Goose-spiked ice pops.
After accidentally trekking our best shoes through the park’s new water feature–warning: look down or you’ll get soaked–we stumbled upon a rouge-lipped Paz de la Huerta dressed in a black Gucci number and a re-issued Coach bag. It was the Boardwalk Empire star’s first time in the park since its re-opening, “I used to come here as a child before it was the High Line,” she told us. As for the attention her lipstick’s been getting these days, she said, “The whole thing is ridiculous, it has nothing to do with the color of my clothing. Tonight I’m not wearing a red dress, and I would never match this with black lipstick.”

I received my February Vogue in the mail yesterday, and I’ve got to hand it to them, it was a fantastic issue. There were some lovely little tidbits in there that I’m happy to share:
Meredith Melling Burke is no longer the editor of the Index pages. Fashion market editor Jessica Sailer has taken on the task of putting together those back pages. As the Index is one of my favorite sections in Vogue, I noticed that MMB’s byline was missing in the January issue. This time around, AW announces in her editor’s letter that Sailer is newly in charge. MMB seems to be focusing more on the web these days. We hear from the inside that she’s the one everyone at Vogue.com is really reporting to, not Candy.
In his profile of Proenza Schouler, fashion news director Mark Holgate says that the duo is about to sign a deal with Andrew Rosen, Theory CEO and Rag & Bone investor.

On Sunday night (a bit delayed, sorry), I headed to MILK to watch Gareth Pugh’s Ruth Hogben produced film. I’d expected a preview of the collection, but instead I watched a giant cube in the middle of MILK’s loading dock. Each side represented an element and the top of the cube, which was essentially the Read more →
