Lorick has had my heart since its Spring/Summer 2009 presentation, where models were elegant, beautiful, and refined yet playful as they dug into pastel-colored cakes. It looked like a scene out of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, which by the way, happens to be my all time favorite movie. Every season since then, Abigail Lorick --the mastermind behind Lorick--has been producing beautifully tailored pieces as she strives to embody the 'Lorick Lady,' a woman who has eternal style while trends come and go. As I made my way to Tella Design Studio, I imagined what Lorick might have in store for us this season. Named Linear Dawn, this season's collection consists of subtle simplicity. Of course I expected beautiful clothing but once again, I was taken back by the attention to detail Lorick offers. From afar, the color palette--soft pinks, light blues, and soft grays--looked whimsical. However, once I moved up close it could be seen that the organza, chiffon, and georgette had been all hand-painted with lines and grids, giving life to the name of the collection. There were lovingly-draped dresses, skirts, and head-pieces, which seemed to be made for the models, who looked like they were all planning to go to some modern tea party after the show. So, even though there was no cake involved this time around, I was pleasantly impressed by the aesthetics. It was everything I expected from the designer. Très bien!

On Tuesday, September 14, Grey Ant--who are best known for their jeans-- will be holding their NYFW show while also celebrating the re-launch the Grey Ant Collection after taking a few seasons off. We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at some of the pieces, including a Grace Jones detailed cotton silk dress, an amazing cardboard and leather platform, and their Kennedy sunglasses--all of which will debut on the runway come Tuesday. Grey Ant says that their collection was inspired by their move to New York City from Los Angeles, after taking residence in the CFDA’s Fashion Incubator. Take a look at some of their one-of a-kind pieces.
