Five Things We’ve Liked So Far at Fashion Week

From left: Spring looks from Jason Wu, Victoria Beckham, and Alexander Wang.

  • 1.
  • That Jason Wu is showing a bit of a sleeker side. His clothes are still polished and dressy, but they have a new, cool edge.
  • 2.
  • The navy and black coats at Victoria Beckham. (She also gets points for sitting in the front row at her own show and chatting away to all of her guests.)
  • 3.
  • The shoes at Derek Lam — particularly the mixed-skin wedges with the ankle straps.
  • 4.
  • The super-active accessories at Alexander Wang: golf bags, scooter helmets ...
  • 5.
  • Whatever it was that was scenting the air at Thakoon's show in the Plaza Hotel — it smelled like some kind of enchanted, hippie, holiday forest in there.

    And, as a bonus: The front-row comments from Sarah Easley's 5-year-old daughter, Virginia, who shouted to a model at Prabal Gurung, "You look awesome, lady!"
