they're stomping in new york

so the giants won the superbowl, you got to love an underdog. but they're not the only ones stomping, as they say, so are all the lovely ladies at new york fashion week. i've been reading the blogs and checking out the photos on style.com and i have to say i like what's happening for fall 08. lots of colour, lots of emphasis on the waist, great pants and little jackets. i was i little disappointed with spring 08, very little excited me. one show that did stand out was alexander wang and his collection for fall only solidified my infatuation with him. his stuff is so easy and but with a tough edge. he makes the kind of clothes the cool girls wear and the look is effortless. some of the elements i loved in the fall collection were the continuation of the exposed zipper trend especially on the pants and knee high boots. i also love all the vests especially in leather and sequins. the show was very sexy, a little biker and very wearable. i want i want i love i love. wang loves to collaborate with model erin wasson and she's been acting as his show stylist for two seasons now. she has great person style and in the december issue of vogue australia there's a great spread where she shows off her look traipsing around byron's bay. below are some shots from style.com of the alexander wang show and my favourite pics from that vogue spread.
