Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch and Style Director Morgan Wendelborn crammed as many shows into a seven-day period as possible, and they came away with some major spring inspiration. Check out their favorite moments from the week.
Favorite moment on the runway:
Kate: Seeing Shopbop model Ava Smith on the runway at Helmut Lang.
Morgan: Karlie Kloss at Donna Karan. What a star!
Favorite moment off the runway:
Kate: The Prism presentation at La Bain! It was an extension of summer: spicy mango popsicles, an amazing view, and the chicest swimwear.
Morgan: Reviewing the shows on my iPad at Oficina on Prince Street. Hi, Max and Hans!
Best after party:
Kate: Taking my heels off each night gave me such joy it felt like a party!
Morgan: My apartment! On my couch with my boyfriend and Kate Cieps.
Chicest street style spotting:
Kate: Liu Wen wearing a little polka dot cardi after the Phillip Lim show. Jane Albiter, our RTW buyer, looked insanely cool every day.
Morgan: Printed pajama pants looked so effortless all week! The chicest women were wearing flats, sandals, and oxfords and simple, softly pointed pumps paired with cropped pants, shorts, and slim midi skirts. Elegance and ease felt so on point.
Spring trend you’ll try now:
Kate: Lavender paired with red inspired me at the DVF show. Wearing it today, actually. Loving all the new color combos. And, I can’t wait to wear white leather pants.
Morgan: White leather. I love how it’s done in chic ways this season: shorts, blazers, and shift dresses
Show(s) you can’t wait to shop:
Kate: Phillip Lim (especially the bags!!!), Thakoon, and Zero + Maria Cornejo.
Morgan: Jenni Kayne (best blazers ever and love the pink suits!), Yigal Azrouel, Rag & Bone (those knit biker jackets are INCREDIBLE), and Theyskens’ (DENIM!!!).
