Beads, brocades and below the waist. Marc Jacobs brings of ensembles reminiscent of the legendary Vogue editor, Diana Vreeland. The runway was chockful of mid-century silhouettes, furs, leathers, python prints and patent leather boots. Mixing and clashing prints was a biggie in this collection, each print and piece perfectly contrasting next to each other. Everything about this collection was hard, bold and baroque making it definite favorite of this year.

Jason Wu

Jason Wu did what he does best, pieces that exude effortless, luxe and modernity. The palette can be described as utilitarian, with grays, army greens and hints of reds. The simplicity of  this collection has given us a bit of breather from the ornate and rustic feelings of the other collections. Trousers, dresses, skirts, all tailored to perfection. Although some argue that Wu had played it safe, the execution of these themes have never been so beautiful. 

Michael Kors

Michael Kors brings out one of his staples this season: fur. We've seen it all over the place with these shows, but no one shoes it how its done like Kors can. Two-toned, grays, blues, taupes and browns, we've seen him do amazing things with it. Contrasting with the fur, Kors presents neat tailored suits and the ever-growing trend of chunky knits.

Alexander Wang

When discussing this collection Alexander Wang stated, "Our customers wants black, so why not do an all-black collection?" And that he did. Exquisitely. Black can be boring and flat, but Wang gave the color life through attitude and edge. The dark matter is accompanied by fabrics of denim, knitwear, mesh and plaid. The collection was loaded with more hardware than aisle twelve of Home Depot, mixed in the 90's grunge, and just a tad of Frankenstein.

Victoria Beckham

The classic fall ensembles reigned in Victoria Beckham's collection. Mock turtle-necks, over-sized knit wear and palette of rustics hues were used to create this collection of sensibility, balance and asymmetry. Beckham has done the almost impossible of incapturing femininity through unlikely boxy silhouettes and creating sex appeal through a menswear inspiration. This has easily been one of the best collection Beckham has put out, and it has us dying to see what's to come.
