Maybe It’s Time to Soften Up ... With Velvet

Leather may have taken an early lead dominating the runways this week, but as we reach day eight, it’s clear that things have softened up — with velvet. Nanette Lepore and Altuzarra showed floor-length gowns in the fabric, while Zac Posen used it to create flirty minidresses in bright-red hues. But velvet isn’t just for eveningwear, as Charlotte Ronson and Erin Fetherston crafted tailored vests and pants suitable for daytime escapades. Alexander Wang even brought an urban twist to the plush textile by putting it on platform boots. Click ahead to see these looks and more.
