Here are our favorites from the recent NY runways. These are definitely our pick of the bunch and we found these particularly inspiring.

Dripping with embellishments. We love the way that Alexandre has played in ethnic/exotic references. It's Moorish yet refers to Russian babushkas and viking warriors.

This collection has got me thinking about how amazing Joseph's technicolor dream coat would have been! I can't say I am one bit repelled by the clashing colors and prints. It's almost magnetic. No wonder Joseph's brothers wanted him dead.

This collection seems to be built from heirloom pieces of Grandma's fabric box. Not only are they intricate and varying, they're also collected in a way that each piece has its own meaning. It's seeped with tradition and cultural references. Multiple scarfs in soft peach hues, tangerine, burgundy and white wrapped over and over the body and left to hang loosely. I spy saris, skirt over pants, Aztec wraps, mariachi detailing and kungfu shoes, bringing together different traditional silhouettes.
