Preen Makes the Sun Shine

About halfway through day two of Fashion Week, the rain showed no sign of letting up, but the nasty weather didn’t stop the crowds from pouring into Milk for the Preen show. The beloved Brit label's front row held Alexa Chung, Cory Kennedy, Leigh Lezark, Trish Goff and and a bundle of editors. And even though I chose to puddle-hop around town in flat boots, it’s pretty clear that nothing will come between the Vogue-ettes and their Proenza heels. The show opened with a series of moody and monochromatic looks in black, gray, and white before including hints of neon yellow and hot pink - I loved the yellow shoes! - until they finally showed fully hot pink jumpsuits and dresses. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi had a ball with texture. It wouldn't be a Preen show without some lace, but they used ruffles, rosettes, laces and coral-like poufs to build depth into their dresses. It was pretty clear no one would see the sun today, but the brilliant colors at the Preen show made my day a little bit brighter. --ALYSSA VINGAN
