The first thing that jumps out about Zac Posen's designs is the structure. It's all about structure. His jackets and pants have a distinct, clean cut. Though dresses are usually flowing and A-line, Posen's dresses have structured necklines with an hourglass silhouette, especially for the 2012 lines. The designer has turned fashion into architecture.
When NOAH, an American menswear brand, dropped their Spring/Summer 2020 collection, the company made a statement. The clothes were quintessential NOAH- boardshorts, color-blocked rugby shirts, paisley pants, and graphic striped tees- a concoction of 90s skater silhouettes, luxury nautical stylings, and a Manhattan attitude.

Jenni Kayne has a relatively high end brand in America’s clothing market. Her styles are very traditional and never outlandish, but if you want to look as good as this future megastar, your pockets are going to hurt. At least mine would.
An integral part of most outfits are the accessories used to accent a look. Jewelry has reemerged as an important sector within the fashion industry. It’s no longer all about diamonds, other gemstones are finally getting their chance to shine. A prominent example of this can be found in the work of jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth. While some of Neuwirth’s jewelry features diamonds they are rarely the focal point of her pieces. Several of her collections have been comprised of opal, turquoise, emerald, and several other precious or semiprecious stones. Neuwirth has discovered a way to bridge the gap between high and low end fashion through the creation of her luxury jewelry brand.
