NY Fashion Week Spring 2009: Rubin Singer

I got to sit second row (I’m not first row worthy or second for that matter, but whatever) at Rubin Singer’s Spring 2009 runway show this afternoon. I actually didn’t know a lot about Rubin Singer going into the tents but I have to admit, I did kinda dig his show. I wasn’t blown away by it or anything (it’s not really my style) but there were some amazing silhouettes and a few pieces I wouldn’t mind owning.Key Trends:

  • Sexy back cut-outs: The racer back gown that went down the runway was amazing
  • Collars, collars, collars: Huge shawl collars, extra-tall popped collars — drama is the word!
  • Lady-like style: Lots of suits but with a fashion-forward twist, prim and proper looks without looking stuff

Awesome Accessories:

  • Feathered headbands: These were not your hippies’ headbands. Very chic usage of feathers in headbands and hair ornaments.
  • Top handled bags: Gigantic, statement making top handled handbags looked great with some of the looks.
  • Statement necklace: Subversive designed the jewelery for the show and let me tell you something … wow! It’s going to be all about the statement necklace for fall 2008 and spring 2009 ladies.

Color/ Pattern Stories:

  • Navy blue and cream
  • Black and white
  • Teal and orange
  • Polka dots
  • Stripes
  • Paint-like strokes
