For those of us who love the Kate Spade attitude but are more tomboy than girly girl, the brand's Kate Spade Saturday offshoot—which launched this spring—is something of a sartorial godsend. While the currently available styles are a fun, not-too-serious mix of '80s-inspired prints—I love the windowpane check and the blue paint splatter best—fall's focus is a deep, dark palette with just a hint of '70s ski bunny. But whatever era Kate Spade Saturday is channeling, the sporty, modern feel is the same. Click through for a first look at the fall collection. And shop Kate Spade Saturday's spring offerings at Saturday.com.
The Fall fashion "season" may have technically concluded with last week's Paris shows, but one young New York designer begs to differ.
To those who follow/stalk Lena Dunham or Rachel Antonoff on Instagram, it's no secret that the two are friends (or that Dunham is dating Antonoff's brother). So, it's only natural that the two of them would end up working together, especially in this age of fashion films as unofficial ad campaigns.

This budding it-girl had a packed New York fashion week but kept a pretty awesome sense of humor about it. We asked her to chronicle it for us. Dare you not to develop a mini girl crush.

Peanut butter and jelly, Jay-Z and Beyonce, music and fashion--some things just go together perfectly. The right soundtrack can elevate a show from 'meh' to 'Hell yes!' in just a few short beats. We picked 15 that we think nailed it.
Thanks to Nemo dumping 10 inches of snow on NYC--not to mention frigid temperatures in the 20s--outerwear was at the front of everyone's minds this past week. Luckily, New York designers were totally on top of it and offered a pretty stellar selection of coats and jackets for fall 2013.
We've wrapped another New York fashion week, and as usual, we had a really tough time choosing our 10 favorite collections. After much analysis, though, we've anointed them, in no particular order. Drum roll, please...
Fashion week came, and brought a feisty lil' friend named Nemo along for the ride--forcing us to consider forgoing, "Well, doesn't she look chic!" for, "Well, doesn't she look warm?!" The runways begged to differ, offering up endless new ways to bundle-up beautifully for fall 2013. Check out our top ten trend takeaways from the fashion week that weathered the storm in style.
We've seen tasteful nude nails backstage for fall 2013, and some original nail art--both of which we expected. More unexpected? Decidedly dull nails. And by dull we don't mean boring--we mean shine-free. (Well, except for Marc Jacobs' shiny new line.) Yep, matte nails are offically a trend.
It started out as a big idea: We'd have Fashionista contributor and Haute Cuisine host David Yi dress up exactly like Bryanboy (we're talking head-to-toe) and then attend a New York Fashion Week show along with him. And then, with cameras rolling, we'd see what happened. People already mistook Yi as the renowned fashion blogger. "I remember one year an editor sitting next to me at Peter Som noticed my then-bleach blonde hair and said, verbatim, 'Bryanboy, your fans are going to go crazy because of your new hair.'" Yi said. To which he replied, "Uh, racist." Anyway, we thought we'd have a little fun with that. Watch what happened!
Layering is a staple for cold fall/winter climates. With warmth a priority, designers only have so many options to show customers how to bundle up in as chic a manner as possible. So, how about doubling up on coats? That appears to be the message this fall, with collections from Altuzarra, DKNY and The Row pairing short coats over long coats.
Backstage yesterday afternoon at the Marc Jacobs show, beauty editors were herded into a small holding room away from all the hair and makeup action, because with 55 models getting prepped for the show, it was way too chaotic for us to be roaming around. I should mention that in the holding pen there was a small version of the "sun" light that was on the main floor, meaning we were all in this surreal lighting for a good hour while waiting to hear about the beauty looks. (FYI it's the least flattering lighting ever.) Well, it was worth the wait because we got a peek at the nail polish which will be part of Jacobs's hotly anticipated makeup line for Sephora.
Ralph Lauren loves a theme. It's always a fun game to try to guess what it's going to be each season: The American West? English Countryside? The Far East? Toreador? This season Lauren went to Russia, a theme that would have seemed even more fitting just days ago when the streets were blanketed with snow.
