Editor’s Picks: The Top 5 Looks at Fashion Week So Far

By

It's only day two, but of all the looks to have walked the runways so far, we have some early favorites: a big, bulky motorcycle jacket at Coach that has a palpable toughness, or a fluid satin crepe in the most convincing shade of evergreen at Jason Wu. And there are feminine laces and huge cocoon coats that we have bookmarked to lust after next year. Scroll through to see our top picks from the runways, so far. 

At Creatures of Comfort, a big aqua cocoon coat was paired with a berry-stained lip and horn-rimmed sunglasses — a strange but comfortable lo0k.

Zimmerman also showed off aqua outerwear in the softest mohair, this one being sleeveless with a severe silhouette, a single button, and paired simply with gold shoelaces. 

Peter Som is carrying the torch for the SS14 of ostrich feathers, festooning peplums and skirts with feathers dyed in an inky indigo blue, even a bright orange.

At Coach, industrial-grade leathers created molded silhouettes in biker jackets and workman coats that looked like they'd last a lifetime and then some.

At Jason Wu, fluid evergreen satin crepe was cut and draped to create a demure mock-neck dress. With a front-gathered drape and cutouts on the sides, it's the perfect statement cocktail dress or red-carpet look. 

Tadashi Shoji presented this blue lace dress that seemed perfect in every way. We imagine it worn insouciantly under a biker jacket, or simply by itself. 

Creatures of the Wind presented a pioneer-meets-space-travel collection. This look in particular — with its blush tone, gold jacquard, and side tie, topped off with a mock-neck top — seemed unusually futuristic and classic all at once.
